How much data?

Postby BsfCar » Sat Jul 10, 2010 7:36 pm

On an iPhone 3GS with iOS 4, how much data is Waze transmitting and receiving? I ask because I have the 250GB/mo data plan. I sure don't want to use more than my allotment just using Waze.

That would all depend on if you are using navigation or not, and if you are driving the same routes every day so the map tiles are already cached or not. Also how much you zoom in and out may affect the amount of tiles you'll need to download. There is no one answer - it's all in how you use it.

There is a setting in Waze under Data Usage to 'display network monitor'. This shows what you are downloading at any one time, but not a cumulative total. You can also turn on 'Use data compression'.
