Agps useage monitoring
When you use agps, for example with a car gps program, is it counted towards your monthly data quota?

I'm pretty sure it would.

 

Any one else want to give some feedback?

It's an internal ping as far as anyone knows. You get charged for using "maps" and other data download map applications. TomTom is a fullon application. It does ping agps but it's an internal ping as it has a gps chip. If you buy the i4 tomtom kit in the end if the year you'll be covered as it would use the included chip.

if you are using data, it will deduct from your data allowance. 

 

 

gps programs need to constantly update your position on the route, so youll be using a pretty good amount of data

 

 

edit: unless you use a system as stated above

It only uses the data when you first initiate the gps. That is, after the initial 6k transfer, it will NOT use any more data until you turn off the gps, and try to get a lock again. If using the maps application, this means that everytime you start Maps, it will do the 6k transfer, and wont use any more data until you close maps and open it again.

It depends. If it is an app like TomTom, which has all the map data on the phone, then it won't be updating through data. If it is like AT&T's Navigator, which doesn't have the mapping data on the phone, you will be using your data quota.

The size of the app is an indicator. I use Navigon and Magellan. Both are nearly 2 gig in size, because they install the map data with the app.
