Can I use the app without a cellular data connection?

No. The app has been designed to make sure you always have the latest information, and therefore the app needs a data connection. Please be aware that roaming charges may apply if you use the app abroad.

How much data does the app use?

That depends on how you use it, we are constantly striving to find the best balance between the data used and an excellent user experience.

For lower data usage we recommend that you use the Road or Overlay view, with Traffic information turned off. Go to the Settings menu and then select Traffic information, then Jam information while driving. If you use the Map view, zooming out will use less data.

Using Road View or Overlay View

If you commute for one hour per day, we estimate that the app will use approximately 30 MB of data per month. We base this estimate on the following:

  • You drive 30 minutes each way.
  • Your Android device has a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (~445 ppi pixel density).
  • You do not have traffic information turned on.

Using Map View

If you commute for one hour per day, we estimate that the app will use approximately 45 MB of data per month. We base this estimate on the following:

  • You drive 30 minutes each way.
  • Your Android device has a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (~445 ppi pixel density).
  • You do not zoom in excessively. Note that zooming in will consume more data while driving.
  • You do not scroll excessively around the map while driving.
  • You do not have traffic information turned on.

Important: If you are outside of the area covered by your mobile data plan, you may be liable for extra roaming charges while using TomTom Services. Check with your mobile operator for details.
