The main feature I've been really looking forward to in ios 6 is the new maps app. I got a 4s after my original droid died on me, and the turn by turn navigation of android was severely missed.
When I had my droid, I had unlimited data, and could cache maps to my phone. If I'm correct, you can't cache maps locally to your phone with ios 6, and I now have a 2gb cap on data.
How much data does turn by turn navigation use? I drive around a lot, and many times it's places I've never been. If I use it for a few hours once a week or so, will that use up all my data?
@RadioFlyer: I don't know how much data the iOS 6 app uses, but I use Waze, which is free! It caches maps, and offers turn-by-turn. It also offers social mapping, like red light cameras and accidents, but you can turn those off if it's a data concern.
It gets pretty big due to the map caching, though. Up to like, 3GB or so? You can clear it out under settings, but the size thing freaked me out a bit when I first started using it.
Apple Maps use vector data so it shouldn't be too bad unless you have the satellite images turned on. When I get mine I need to check it out. Other then that, it will pull from Yelp when needed so still not too bad.
It is amazing that maps are a "big thing" in iOS 6. It is not even an os thing but an app.
@RadioFlyer: For a 4.5 miles long route, in "Standard" (i.e. vectorial map) my cellular usage (reset in the garage before entering destination) is 48.0kB down and 18.0kB up. Might include other activities (mail), but I think you're safe.

Yeah, I've got some bad news...
