What's the most cost effective option to update my navigation system? Although I often use my Google Maps, I would like to update the Navi so that I don't have to use my Data on my phone plan.

Any advice would help!

You mean updates that are about 2 years out of date? Wondering how much data a person uses per hour with Waze, Google Maps, etc? I recently used Waze for about 22 hours on a drive to Scottsdale.

If you drive a large city often use Google maps and download the regional map while over WiFi. Google Maps will use this offline version to save data and then update it the next time it see' WiFi.

Waze uses about .23MB per hour.

On average, Google Maps uses about 0.67MB of data every 10 miles and 0.73MB of mobile data for every 20 minutes. According to our research, it uses less than Apple Maps but slightly more than Waze. ... We tested out Google Maps against Apple Maps and Waze to find out which one used the least amount of mobile data.

I don't think I've ever seen MB expressed with a decimal point. I drove 24 hours with Wazw. So, using .23MB X 24 comes out to 5.52MB or almost nothing. If that is correct, who cares what Waze uses? I think my ATT data plan is for 6 GB per month. I see a report that streaming a movie uses about 3GB per hour. Since almost all my streaming is via wifi, I could care less.
