Google Maps Now Shows How Much Toll Roads Will Cost You
Google Maps has received an update that will now show people how much it will cost to drive on toll roads that are on their route. The feature is available across iPhone and iPad, although it is limited in scope.
Right now, Google says that almost 2,000 toll roads are covered across the United States, India, Japan, and Indonesia. It does say that more will get support eventually, but it hasn’t said which countries will be coming on board next.
Google’s announcement says that people will be able to get toll information before they set off on their route, while support for toll passes will also be included for those who have them.
You’ll see the estimated toll price to your destination before you start navigating thanks to trusted information from local tolling authorities. We look at factors like having a toll pass or not, what the day of the week it is, along with how much the toll is expected to cost at the specific time you’ll be crossing it.
Being able to see how much a toll road will cost ahead of a journey is a great addition, although the app will continue to allow people to bypass the hassle by simply telling it to avoid toll roads altogether.
For the planner friend: this new feature is for you. 🙏
Now when you’re planning trips big and small, you can check estimated toll prices before you pick a route—and spend what you save on road snacks. pic.twitter.com/Lfy8s2TXQU
