Waze used 59MB of data on my 25 miles, 40 min commute this morning and used 90MB of data on my 50 miles round trip commutes yesterday and another 110 MB again a few days back on daily commute. What is happening? Please advise.

Please Waze community: release the update soon because the internet data usage is so high! We need to pay for these extra usage. OMG Saludos desde Argentina!

It was a known issue. I had the same thing happen, I went from using very little data to using 20x the amount for the exact same trips. When I contacted support they told me they were aware and working on it. Don't know if it was them, or an Apple update or not, but eventually it fixed itself.

Maybe the recent 4.55.1.0 update fixed the problem?

It does not appear to have done this. Same abnormally high data usage on the commute home yesterday.
