Cell/Mobile Data Usage

Summary of issue: Excessive data usage

Device: iPhone X

OS: iOS 12.3.1

App Version (Settings > Scroll to the bottom): 2.26.2-3dc37281

I've been since the end of May. Since that time, Ingress has used 10.5GB of cell data. That seems a bit excessive. Any sort of setting or design change that could reduce this utilization would be appreciated.

    More simply I'd like a low bandwidth setting I can turn on. Connected by wifi might be cheap free data or might be connected to satellite modem or hotspot...

    Or might be a whisper of signal that I want to use to deploy that portal rather than download 17 portal pictures.

  • I just sent an email to the contact listed in the play store page for the app. Figured I would check the website and see if there are any other avenues for putting this idea onto Niantics development roadmap.

    I'd love to see this feature as well. It would be useful in rural situations where cell service is spotty and data access is all but null, as well as general bandwidth savings for folks who can't afford large or "unlimited" data plans.
