Someone talk me off the ledge

$30? looking for a new phone for a GPS. It won't get used with a SIM card. Apparently, this model doesn't get LTE, so what do I have to lose if its a scam? Seems only $30..

The s5 is a 4gLTE phone. I wonder why they say it's only 3g.

That's enough to make me not want to waste my money.

Looked like 35 sold in about an hour. When I looked at the ad you linked, there was 1 left - two minutes later, the link was dead.

It was probably fake.

Hmm.

My experience with the admittedly few GPS apps I've seen is if you don't have connectivity to the cellular data network, the app won't function anyway. It can't pull down map data and such.

There are probably some apps I don't know about...

CoPilot works very well. you down load the maps you want to the phone and it doesn't need the network to function. $10 app and well worth it. i use it on my S5 Active.

There definitely are, plenty of discussion in the GPS forum about them- on android, Locus and OSMaps are two good ones, I think. Those use downloaded vector maps stored on the phone, there are others that use raster maps or track position on indexed pdf or jpg images.
