I do not know about the other versions but in the iPhone-version of Waze, in the "Data Usage"-menu, there is a slider to enable "Display network monitor". If enabled, a small text pops up in the top-right corner that informs you of the volume consumed by Waze in the current session. It is not a running total, alas, but it can give a good impression of your data-usage. Hint: downloading map-tiles makes up the most volume, so if you play around with Waze (zooming over your route) before leaving home (and while you are in Wifi) you can avoid most of the data-traffic.

in the iphone version you can also enable data compression for reducing the traffic and thus costs :)

How much data waze normally use?

i'm very new to waze.
just want to know what is the typical data usage, to avoid a *surprise* from the month bill.
let's say if i drive about 20min a day with waze open, how many MB i need for a month? Thanks.
