Ive got one and love it.
I havent tried the GPs but the Wifi is under connectivity in the settings menu. select wifi and to create a connection you need ti go into options/advanced to set one up.
cheers

GPS is free, but Google Maps on the W995 will not work over Wifi, which means all the map data will have to download over the cellular network, and will costs (cost varies according to your plan).

navigation also downloads from the internet. It gets much more complex if you want to use GPS maps offline. Try researching trekbuddy for offline maps
