According to online sources, mobile versions of the mapping service Google Maps have received a new feature that will help estimate the cost of travel on the selected route if it includes toll roads. This feature launched this week, so it may only be available to a limited number of users at this time.
According to the source, the service takes into account the fares on the roads on which the user intends to travel. Google indicates that the toll costs will be deducted “Reliable information from the local traffic authorities”. The service also takes into account the time of day when the user will overcome a certain section of the path.
At the same time, the “Avoid Tolls” feature remains available to help you avoid setting up toll roads or minimize movement on them. Google Maps was previously able to warn the user that a toll was being charged on a stretch of road. Now the service can estimate the total amount of fees to be paid for the entire trip.
According to Google, the new feature is currently able to calculate toll costs for up to 2,000 roads in the US, India, Japan and Indonesia. In the future, the number of available roads will be expanded. Google Maps users on Android and iOS devices can take advantage of the new feature.
