N95 Assisted GPS with Vodafone

Hi,

Does anyone use the Network Assisted GPS on their N95. The reason I ask is how much data does it consume?

I have a 500MB data add-on with Vodafone. Does the assisted GPS use a considerable amount of data or would I be safe enough in using it ?

Find out for yourself. Go into logs and check how much data was transmitted.

it's not going to use 500mb - assistance is for traffic reports etc which should not be be that significant in terms of data usage.
but bear in mind that data add-ons are not usually valid abroad where data charges can be huge so turn off the assistance part when abroad if using gps...

I use the network assisted GPS and don't see the data usage on my three online account, it is a very small amount only in the kb and not the mb region. Used it for maybe 10hours or more this month as I use both sports tracker and nokia maps.

Don't think u will have any problem with mad data usage and from what I have read it does speed up the GPS lock and should be left on except when abroad where as glasso mentioned could be expensive.
