Google Maps Android driving support charges.What is data usage ?

I am interested in knowing the data usage for google maps driving support. Does anyone know how much is used and if this is a per minute thing?

Hey @CatherineA!

 

Alas I don't have numbers to provide you per se, but I do know that the data usage made by this app is fairly low. Still, the usage will vary depending if you're moving or not, how you're using the app (searching for a restaurant for example) and to a lesser extent the strength of the reception. 

 

Note that there is an "offline" mode with Google Maps which allows you to download the map of a set area! With this you would have access to basic information but you would miss the live traffic conditions and updates.

 

Hope that helps Smiley
