Highway and bridge tolls, which are also on the agenda from time to time in our country, now take their place in Google Maps service. When you create a route for a trip, Google will tell you from the beginning how much money you pay.
Google has announced a number of updates to Google Maps, including an update to show highway tolls before you start getting where you want to go.
“We are looking at factors such as the cost of using a toll pass or other payment method, what day of the week it is, and how much the toll is expected to cost at a given time of pass,” Google said in a blog post. If a free route is available, that will also be shown as an option. The feature will be available on Android and iOS for nearly 2,000 toll roads in the US, India, Indonesia, and Japan this month. The feature will be coming to more countries soon.
In addition, Google adds new details to navigation maps. "You will soon see traffic lights and stop signs along your route, as well as advanced details like building outlines and points of interest," he says. In certain cities, additional details will also be available, such as the shape and width of a road, including squares and islands. These enhanced maps will be available on Android, Android Auto, iOS and Apple's CarPlay software in the coming weeks.
Google Maps users on Apple devices are also getting some updates. There will be a new widget for the iOS app that gives you access to trips pinned to the "Go" tab and will be available in the upcoming weeks.
