Google maps is just one application as a test case
I am not sure what the UMA stands for but i was able to start google maps with just the Wifi connection turned on and the edge data radio turned off.
But it could be that i established an intitial connection to google map with my data connection first. But anything after that i always tried it with the edge radio off and just the wifi.
