With WiFi off, Google Maps won't work.
CoPilot, which I just bought, will work w/o Phone service or WiFi.

|kippcam||Can you try turning off both Wifi and cellular and then try to calculate a route? That would tell us for sure whether Google has now allowed route calculations to work based only on off-line cached map data.|

No need for a subscription to any telephone service -at all- nor any upgrade to current service unless mandated by sprint/verizon/t-mob, etc.
All you need is an android phone with GPS chip, and Wi-Fi service
Oh... and since we're talking cost, buy a perfectly good Verizon/Sprint phone with a "bad ESN" --unpaid bills- for a really cheap price on eBay.
Decent phones at $30 shipped sold daily. Big screen? search ebay for "Echo phone" - double screen phone 5.4" diagonal (IIRC) with both screens working & acting as once screen.

however I'm curious to know how old that review is, since my experience -last week- was that when I changed routes,
right at the outset of my little trip, Google Nav picked up on it and recalculated the route immediately.
Note that I did indeed download ( via Wi-Fi ) maps in a 50 mile radius of my home, (and intend to increase that to cover the USA).
Whether the program + little snapdragon processor would re-optimize the order of a multi-stop route - that I can't say.
But, then again, I expect the answer is YES, since the processors in my old Mio & Magellan probably not superior.
Google Maps is a free app at the Play Store, and once on the phone, it will download the maps themselves, you just need memory space onboard, or on a micro SD.
So, if you have an Android with GPS chip (99.99% have them), why not give it a try?; you can always uninstall.

|kippcam||I don't have Google Nav so I don't know for sure. But I read in reviews that if you get off route and it needs to recalculate (or if you want to change or start a new new route), it can't do this unless you are connected to the internet. Is this incorrect?|

If you play around with Google Navigation, you'll find that you can download their maps direct into your phone (I used Wi-Fi for the download), and their map program works just fine without any cellphone hookup at all.
I just did this with a HTC One V - drove some 40 miles and all works perfectly.

I got this and like it so far, but how do you get the free one time map update? On their website I only see the option to purchase a onetime update or the lifetime updates.
I looked and found this under "MyMaps" so I guess they are already installed:
"City Navigator North America NT 2013.10, Lower 49 States - Map Only, Apr 12
Date Unlocked: October 9, 2012"
