So, you're saying that we'd lose the "current vehicle location" and possibly the "journeys" data or the ability to schedule/stop charging (should they ever get that to work!) after the 90 days if we don't subscribe? That's a different matter.

No, not at all. Those are things that will always be part of the car. The paid data plan is simply allowing you to use the car as a hotspot and using the car’s internet browser for browsing the internet, etc. but if you have a cellphone with a decent data plan, buying ATT’s data plan for the car really doesn’t make any sense at all.

Doesn't the user SIM provide data for live traffic in navigation?
I don't have my vehicle yet so anyone with a vehicle want to try it out?
I was told that only sim the car will accept is At&t as well. I even called Verizon to see if I could add it to my plan and they said their sim would not work for the I-Pace. I use the sim for the nav.

How do you "use the sim for the nav"?

They seem completely unrelated

I find this very puzzling. What was the massive USB download I just did for NAV?

The NAV updates is to update the map data. It is unrelated to the OS updates for the infotainment and telematics. JLR updates their map data quarterly. I doubt it will ever be OTA.

I disagree. Without the SIM activated in the vehicle, there is no way to check the location of the car when the car is shut down. Depending upon your home charger (some of which do not report the status of the charging process), there's also no way to check charging status and time remaining without an activated SIM in the vehicle.

I do not believe that is correct. I get all of that on the incontrol app as well as charging status on the chargepoint app ( I have a home Chargepoint Level 2) and my dealer never activated the AT&T wifi on my car as far as I can tell. AT&T says it isn't active for my VIN and the Incontrol website says my AT&T wifi was never activated.

That’s ok that you disagree, however what I wrote is correct. The fact is the car data, etc has noting to do with the ATT data plan SIM.
