You will pay nothing for the technology itself. It's the services that use them that might charge you a fee.

Google Maps, which will be updated in 2.0 to support GPS precision, will remain free, so there's a start.

edit: wow... a triple-answer... that may be a record

GPS is always free--always had been for years (ever since the government opened it up to the public). The satellites are there for anyone--no one can charge for those ubiquitous signals.

However, if I build an application that uses those satellites, I can charge you for the use of my software.
