The WorkWave Route Manager Mobile App can accomplish a variety of tasks to help your operations. Due to this, the data usage will vary from user to user and Driver to Driver. Here are a few examples:
- Itinerary View/Check-In and Check-out: 20 - 30 MBs a month
- Proof of Delivery (Photos, Signatures, Notes, Voice Notes): This will depend on entirely the frequency of uploads and the quality of what your Driver is uploading. We cannot provide an estimate for this
- Mobile GPS Tracking: 250 - 300 MB a month
This does not include the data usage of the separate GPS apps that your Drivers can use to navigate from stop to stop.
Data usage for GPS apps will vary, so check with your cellular carrier or GPS app developer to determine how much data will be used.
As a best practice, when you are not using the GPS, make sure you do not see the icon on the top of your screen. If you do see the icon, it means that the GPS is still running in the background and using your data.
Here, Waze GPS is still open in the background. Close it to minimize data usage.
