As the TELUS Drive+ device consumes your monthly shared data, you will continue to receive data usage notifications to your smartphone as your shared monthly data is depleted. Your data notifications will be sent to the primary account holder on your share plan and any other subscribers you set to receive data usage notifications. You can set which mobile phone subscribers receive data notifications and the applicable notification thresholds using Data Manager online at
or in the TELUS My Account app.
For more information on data usage notifications, see the support article titled: Data usage notifications for mobile device.
Note that when the TELUS Drive+ Wi-Fi is turned off, the device still uses a small amount of data for the vehicle tracking portion of the service. This small amount of data will deduct from your monthly shared data whenever the car is driving. Depending on how often you drive this data usage is typically within the range of 10 to 30 MB per month, and should not exceed 50 MB per month.
: The TELUS Drive+ Wi-Fi hotspot uses your monthly shared data when devices are connected. Smartphones are typically set by default to download and install updates when connected to a Wi-Fi network. To ensure smartphones do not deplete your monthly shared data, you should avoid connecting them to your TELUS Drive+ Wi-Fi network or ensure you turn off “download updates automatically when connected to Wi-Fi network” in your device and Google Play or App Store settings.
