It depends on how your vehicle is equipped. I have a Chevy Colorado that only has Onstar Navigation and I have a Cadillac SRX that has built in Navigation but also has Onstar. When Our Onstar expired the GPS in the Cadillac still works fine without Onstar.
GPS operation is independent of XM.
Gps should work all by itself.
