Toll roads too stressful? Google Maps is going to fix that.
- Google Maps will debut toll road planning.
- Maps will estimate the cost of tolls on your route.
- Maps will estimate when you will cross the tolls.
Google Maps is bringing a major improvement that will make road trips a little easier, calculating the cost of toll routes.
Many drivers prefer to avoid toll roads, but sometimes that’s not always possible. , there are some 5,432 miles of toll roads in the US. A toll road may be the most direct route, the only one not under construction, or the one that is in the best condition. A new Maps update will estimate how much the tolls on your route will cost and when you will cross them.
As with previous versions of Maps, the new update will still show toll roads by default, although you can opt to hide them. However, if you keep toll routes enabled, knowing how much the tolls will cost can take a lot of stress out of your next trip and help you make sure you have enough money on hand.
The new feature will start rolling out to both Android and iOS this month in the US, India, Indonesia, and Japan. More countries are planned for future updates.
