    So I'm going on a 10 hour road trip and would love to use my iPad mini (retina) as a turn by turn gps, anyone know what kind of data usage to expect?

    I tried looking up the info but wasn't able to find anything..The only thing I gathered is that Apple maps uses much less data than Google Maps!

    Thanks for your help!

    I made a post in the App section last week about which Map app used less data. Good to know which one it is now.

    I should be installing my car mount in the next few days. I may try this out and see how much data it uses.

    I did a ~17 mile trip today using my rMini with Apple Maps on T-Mobile LTE. The turn by turn used 35mb.

    For what its worth I changed route a few times and Maps had to recalculate it, not sure if that adds more data usage or not.

    Hope this helps.
