Here's a comparison on RIM's site: BlackBerry - Compare BlackBerry Smartphones and PDAs at BlackBerry.com

8520 has no 3G (I told you you'd get 3G in a coverage are in another discussion. My bad - the 8520 has no 3G) and no built-in GPS. On the plus side, the 8520 has double the internal memory of the 9000 and has the trackpad instead of the trackball.

Does the fact that the 8520 has no GPS mean I can't use maps etc?

You can use maps, it just won't find you on the map or follow where you go.
It may use cell tower triangulation to find a rough estimate of where you are however.
