    No, you will not need to pay any fees for the maps themself, all you need is access to a wifi connection with internet access.

    Depends, unless you have a computer in london its not going to be much use.

    Or without a WiFi it won't be much use since you won't be able to do much other than sums in the calculator.

    your best bet is a tourist book of maps. must quicker and easier to read.

    an ipod needs an internet connection, which it wont have unless you're within wi-fi range, which usually means paying for it, an ipod would be fiddly and frustrating as a tourist to read a map from whilst roaming about, and you'd look like a naive tourist with an ipod, which would make you instantly a target for opportunist thieves and pickpockets. but, if you want to drown out the monotony and complete madness of the city and listen to music, then yes, an ipod will do wonders.

    to access maps all you need is a wifi connection.

    the only fe you'll have to pay is for the actual ipod, and well if haven't already got some: Music and Videos and APPS
