Does Apple Car Play use a lot of Data while playing Pandora?

Same as streaming to your phone. 

  • Pandora Free Edition over Wifi – if you’re listening to your favorite radio station using the free version of the app over Wifi, then the default bitrate is at 128 Kpbs and more or less the app will use around 60 to 70 MB per hour.
  • Pandora Free Edition over mobile data – by default, Pandora radio will stream music at 64 Kpbs when it detects that the phone is connected to the internet via cellular data. So, it will use roughly around 30 MB per hour of continuous streaming.
  • Pandora Premium Edition – if you have a premium account, the bitrate would be at 192 Kbps regardless whether you’re on cellular data or Wifi. While means that you will be using around 90 MB per hour.
