    I'm just wondering since now that it has turn-by-turn voice navigation if people who use it are going to be worried about how much data it uses.

    Doesn't seem to eat a lot of data. I used it a lot while on betas. But it will eat through some battery as the screen is always lit. That's expected but it's not a battery killer.

    Not that much of a data hog. I used it a lot in beta 4. I love how it still navigates in the lock screen and how the voice overs come in no matter what you're doing on the phone.

    The same as any other turn by turn navigation program.

    Depends on the turn-by-turn app. If you have an app with full maps on your phone - the data use is negligible compared to one that has to fetch map tiles on the fly.

    Sorry folks, the maps in iOS6 do you need cellular signal or is it preloaded? In UK you may not have persistent signal while driving certain areas

    it appears that you need a cell signal (just like the version of maps w/google info in it)

    There are apps for Maps & turn by turn that load full maps to the phone... Navigon is one of them.

    The new maps should not use lot of data. That is the advantage of vector maps. Google maps on the other hand used a lot of data comparatively since it was image based and everytimr you zoom it had to download a new image. Try this, load a map and then turn the data off. Now try zooming in and see for yourself.
