The GPS will work, but mapping apps will not because they do require a BlackBerry data plan.

To get GPS, you need to have location services on and be outside with a clear view of the sky. It can take 20 minutes or more to get a lock. But as dc/dc said, you need a BB data plan to get any of the map applications to work.

And in some parts of the world, GPS from US satellites is blocked.
