Galaxy S5 GPS Data Usage

Member

I recently misplaced my Garmin, so I opted to use Google Maps on my S5.  The GPS worked flawlessly and I love Google's integration with Google Maps.  Just curious about a couple things...

- Since the phone has a GPS chip, how much data is typically used?

- If you set your location to "GPS Only" wouldn't that eliminate data usage for the Google Maps app?
