    BB data

    Advertisement



    I was wondering how much data the BB maps suck up. I'm on the Rogers network and the closest to unlimited data is about $100. As I don't really want to spend that much, what do people average in MB usage for this program?

    Re: BB data

    Krissy is asking how much bandwidth a "search" using BBMaps takes, aka does a search take 1MB of bandwidth or .25MB etc, mainly for the graphics and things required for it.

    I have no idea how to calculate my usage within a single program, so i wouldnt be able to help, but maybe someone else can?

    Downloading images such as maps can use quite a bit of data. I can't quantify it exactly but I see alot of 4 k and 8 k downloading with i move around or resize the map on Google Maps on my Pearl.

    I'd say, d you use BB maps a lot, then it could very easily use up 25mb of data. I've used it once just to find a place about 2 miles from where I live and that took up half a megabyte.

    I'm with Rogers and I have the 50 MB plan, and I use my BlackBerry extensively for both work and personal email. I've also been known to use maps.

    Google Maps is far more data heavy than BlackBerry Maps, when compared side by side.

    However, for what it's worth, with the 50 MB plan, I am usually in the 35 or 40 MB range, and I've never gone over the limit.

    What plan do you have now?
