    Is there a site anywhere that gives one an idea of what can be downloaded per GB in a data plan? We have extensive wifi in my area so using it is emergency for me and I will increase data amount when we travel. I got the smallest amount in Verizon this time and expect I won't be able to do much with 1GB LOL.

    For those using GPS how much data coverage do you figure to use it on a trip??

    Oh, gosh, just saw the misstyped title--really need to check before posting LOL.

    I use the 'GPS Drive' app a lot, about 15 hours a month. (It downloads maps real time from the network). I also use the Tunein Radio app to stream live radio while I'm driving. (About 3 hours a month). I also do a fair bit of light browsing when I'm not near a WiFi spot.. I rarely exceed 500 MB a month..

    If you're going to watch Netflix or download movies on 3G, then 1 Gig probably won't be enough.

    Thanks. No, nothing but occasional use. We have a great deal of free wifi in my area so I got along pretty well with my Ipad one for two years with wifi only. I dled an app to keep track of my data use and find its very minimal. Thanks above for specific though--helpful.
