Does having the GPS enabled use a lot of data?

    Unless there is an app out there that tells you how much data an app is using there is no way to determine this. If you are on Verizon's unlimited plan you really don't need to worry about it.

    No. Using a GPS app that uses a lot of data uses a lot of data. The GPS receiver itself does not need data.
