GPS uses the GPS satellites and your data plan. You need the positioning data from the satellites which is always available provided you have a clear view of the sky and
the maps data from your GPS app.
I'm not sure how Google Maps was able to pull data when you couldn't use your browser except that there are some situations where third party apps can pull data without a connection to RIM's network (i.e. status indicator reads lowercase edge/gprs instead of uppercase).
