Exactly! I used Navfree France like that last year. Navfree maps are downloaded when the app is installed. In use it just uses the phones GPS - and no data at all!

No! Banks have to authorise Credit Cards (to Apple) for use on Apple Pay. Some banks are not taking enough care in doing this.

Not a technical problem with Apple Pay!
