Well, I am back from my camping trip and the answer is the GPS component does NOT work if you are out of network range. I was on the top of a 12k ft mountain and it kept telling me "need clear view of the sky". It is too bad. I would like to think I had a GPS lifeline even when I was out of cell range. (I use Sprint).
