Data Usage

Post by Raptronix » Mon Jul 20, 2020 7:36 pm

Hi all, I've noticed a few times this year that the car exceeds its 500 GB/month allowance - not the issue I've seen on here with 20A where it falsely reports this (I have seen that once too), but actually it has used all the data according to EE.

What I don't understand is how!

Its run out this month and with the slow down in vehicle usage its been useful to see how much the car has been used in the month - and its only circa 250 miles of driving.

I've not used data for anything I control (hotspot, phone apps etc) - I use CarPlay exclusively for music etc.

Has anyone else seen this, or have an idea how the cars eaten 500Gb in 250 miles?

Cheers
Nick

Data usage is an ongoing mystery to me. My 500 mb can go in a few days with nothing but a small amount of satnav use. Last week I had an email flagging that I had 100 mb remaking. 5 minutes later an email stating all the data was used.

It's really odd. I've never used satellite view, so I'm pretty certain that isn't the cause.

Have you got your WiFi Hotspot on? Your phone may be connecting to car wifi while you use the car!

Thanks for the idea - unfortunately not, I've never used the hotspot function.
