Google Maps Toll Fees Details
Google Maps is one of Google’s most useful services, and the greatest part is that it’s continually improving with new features and enhancements and is also widely used for navigation. While Google Maps has always indicated the location of toll roads, it does not currently display toll charges. Now Google Maps is adding another interesting update, and also it is a most requested feature.
According to a message given to Google Maps preview program users, Google Maps will show you toll estimations and other expenses you might incur on your trip, allowing you to determine whether you should avoid toll roads ahead of time. Toll fees for roads, bridges, and highways will be immediately displayed in the app. This would be more useful to the consumers in better arranging their journeys. So, if Google Maps can tell you how much the total toll will be and how many toll gates will be along your route, you’ll be able to decide whether or not you want to travel that toll road. This will assist you in making an informed decision about whether or not to use the toll road—driving path. The Google Maps development team also works on toll pricing and possibly the total tolls you need to pay.
This is another function that Google may take from Waze, a mapping program that it bought in 2013. Three years before Google began testing the feature, the app began displaying estimated tolls. The projected toll prices are displayed on Waze.
The feature has not yet been rolled out to users, and the Google Maps preview program participants are not yet allowed to access it. It’s hoped that it will appear soon, as it might be a tremendous help to anyone who has to travel unusual routes or is attempting to navigate about a new city on a budget.
When you have a huge user base, You should often provide new features and user request features. Or Else some third-party apps will get your user base. Most Waze users are using that app because of its useful options not yet available in Google Maps. Google also try their best to provide new features like Parking Availability and Booking. You can also Pay for your Parking Tickets in some countries. Instead of adding colorful touchups, It is always a wise idea to focus on real-time usage needs.
The new Tolls Price Details in Google Map will help lots of Commercial based Vehicle users. The rollout is in the early stage. We can expect the full rollout in few months. Surely it will help to calculate the overall fee for a route. But We can’t choose both low-cost and speed routes. Because the speed route always has tolls. Share your thoughts about the Toll details accuracy if it is available in your country.
