You can browse the map without a GPS connection, if thats what you mean. Its on the second page when you tap the screen.

You would only need a phone/internet connection to get Traffic or other services. You would need a GPS to track your location. There are Browse Map and Advanced Planning functions to allow you to make use of it without the GPS. BUT a PDA screen really isn't the best for doing this, except in emergency or "in the field". I'd recommend one of the online maps/planning options if you're sitting at your PC.

When you say "copy" do you mean a legitimately bought product or one that is an illegal hack?

You don't need to be connected to the internet or the phone to use Sat Nav. All you need is to be connected to a compatable sat nav receiver (bluetooth or serial port usually).
