Tips for Limiting Data Usage on the Road

September 14th, 2020 by

You love your cell phone, and you love your car. And if you’re not careful, it can be easy to use too much data on your car rides. We’re here to help with some tips on how to limit your data usage on the road.

Disable Wi-Fi

This might seem counterintuitive, but turning off your Wi-Fi can actually save you data. If you leave your phone’s Wi-Fi on, it can waste data by constantly searching for a signal, therefore using more data than if it was just turned off.

Download Your Playlist

Instead of streaming music on apps, you can download your playlist and either play it off your phone or put it on a thumb drive that can plug into one of your Chevy vehicle’s convenient USB ports.

Avoid Streaming Videos

If you’re a passenger on a road trip, while it might be tempting, avoid streaming videos, since these are quick to use up your phone’s data. Instead, plan ahead and download videos from your favorite streaming service (this is typically an available option).

Utilize Chevy’s Features

Utilize Chevy’s innovative features to help cut down on data usage. With infotainment system features like a built-in navigation system as well as an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, you can use these features through your Chevy instead of through your phone.
