    I'm going to be traveling next week with my Note2 and am use to 4gLTE, though where I will be located only has 3G speeds.

    How much can I expect Google Navigation to work when working with 3G speeds?

    Should work fine as long as you are getting true 3G speeds. My old xperia arc used to do fine on 3G with google nav.

    Is there a way to do offline mapping navigation somehow?

    My first-gen Moto Droid did fine with Google Nav. You're downloading waypoints and relatively simple maps, and uploading waypoints or positions. 3G should be perfectly fine, it's not like you're downloading tons of hi-res images.

    You can cache maps, but if you go off route it may need a connection in order to find you a route.
