Google Maps uses KB or GPS on plan?

Hey everyone

I have a Sprint Power Pack Plan, Unlimited KB, Sprint Unlimited Vision..my question is

If I use a third party GPS program, i.e Google Maps, will Sprint see it as KB usage or will it be considered as me using GPS and charging me for that, since I don't believe I have Sprint GPS option on my phone.

Any help would be great, thanks folks!

Using Sprint navigation will charge for for data(kbs) and sprint navigation ($2.99/24HR, or $9.99/Mo) if not included in your plan.

Using any other app that pulls GPS data will not result in a charge for Sprint navigation, only data

no you will not be charged for using GPS unless you use the Sprint Navigation, I use TomTom.

Of course I'm right.

Get all the free ones Livesearch, Google Maps.
I like Sprint navigation, and I was getting it for free for the last 5 months, but something changed and now they want to charge me. So I just dont use it anymore. But its still free on my wife's vogue.
