Hi @padacol,

Yes and no...

 

The HTC One M8 supports the majority of frequency bands used in Canada.

 

However, it doesn't support the 1700MHz spectrum which is used for 3G/4G data in some areas.

 

I would recommend using a sat nav service that allows you to download your maps in advance to be safe. Your phone's GPS will work even without a data connection.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi @padacol,

 

You can download maps to use offline in the Google maps app. Smiley Happy

 

Find out more over on the Google maps help pages.
