I’ve searched and can’t find the answer to this. Why does this use so much data? It doesn’t break it down to what exactly is causing it, and I’m stumped. Have unlimited, so that’s not the issue, but battery life hasn’t been to great so it must be doing stuff in the background.

This is about 2.5 weeks of usage.

You do seem to have some type of location alerts or geofencing that is enabled judging by that hollow location arrow in the status bar at the top. If that's being used all the time essentially, maybe that's where at least some if not most of that usage is coming from over time?

I went through the location settings and turned a bunch of things off. Will see if that makes a difference

You also appear to be using a beta, so that could also come with its own host of potential quirks.

I drive my wife to UCLA (a 216 mile round trip) once a week. I leave Waze opened up to/from (2 hours each way). This usually results in a few hundred MB of "Time & Location" --- the pic below is pretty fresh because I reset my stats (on the 19th) recently.

But that much in 2.5 weeks is kinda high!
