My dayly drive to and from work is two hours daily, monitoring of the GoFar app shows 10 meg of data per day. I find this excessive, if I went on a driving holiday all my mobile data allowance would be consumed very quickly.
If you must upload so much data please buffer it and upload when I have a WiFi connection.
Yes we have drastically reduced the mobile data usage and the new optimised algorithm is in the final stages of testing. We hope to have the update available next week.
We have been heavily focussed on delivering the Android app and haven't looked further into this issue yet. Android is in alpha testing and this issue is at the top of our iOS priorities. My estimate is that we will release an improvement in about 2-3 weeks.
Really sorry for the inconvenience in the mean time.
You raise a really good point and buffering it for upload when WiFi becomes available is a great idea. I will add it to the backlog and we will deliver it as soon as we can.
