Dumb question on Maps & data plan
Will using MAPS affect my data plan? and the GPS?
The maps and GPS actually use the data to get current locations.
Not sure what you are asking here...

How will using maps affect your GPS?
To use maps you need to make sure you have changed the GPS option (Options > Advanced Options > GPS) from 911 Only to Location On.
Well the question should have been: I have a limited data plan on my BB.... will using Maps eat it up?

It's possible that may happen.
I just looked it up and it is 4MB... So I should stay away... right?
Try using the maps application for a short drive and check your data usage, assuming you have a way to do that (your carrier's online website perhaps?).
I don't think the maps application uses a whole lot of data, just to do map updates periodically.
After checking your data usage you can take it from there whether you can afford to use it or not.
