I don't think any cyclist "needs" GPS. I ride cue sheets using a wris****ch instead of a bike computer odometer - technology is a convenience, not a necessity.

IME using Google Maps & printing cue sheets is more convenient than GPS which has never been optimized for the niche touring market. A cheap GPS can be handy to find location when off-track but a phone can do that too. I always use cue sheets--that way one can leave the phone/GPS off & not have to fuss with batteries or recharging.
