So you have started your journey. All the best and Be Safe !
And, Google Navigation . I never knew (still cant believe) that Google Navigation do not need any data. Google Navigation uses Google Maps
According to my limited knowledge(used many offline/online maps for last 3 years), GPS shows the location in the map. So, either you need to have downloaded the map before (like MapMyIndia/Sygic/iGo/Garmin/Navigon etc) or need to update/download map at that point of time.
You can check this simply by turning off your mobile data connection and give a new destination.
(if you create a route with data on, and follow the route - the navigation will work unless you re-calculate the route in between)
Please update 'if found true/false'
We too want to do a Goa Trip. Waiting for a company
I think 'other experts' can also throw some lights on 'Google Navigation'
