    Jan-Dirk is correct, no SIM needed. 

    Sorry to hear. It is a little too easy to disable GPS so we are adding a notification for that if it happens accidentally. 

    If you slide down from the top of the screen you can open the quick settings where GPS can toggle on or off. 

    I would suggest you start one quick test ride when you are on your home wifi and scroll to the map screen. Just confirm you have a lock of your location on the map.
