Last Monday (13), the tool announced in April, to display losses on Google Maps, began working in some countries. The new function can be accessed through the application available to Android And the iOS.
How will it work?
The functionality allows the user to get an estimate of how much they will be able to pay when choosing a route on the Google Maps platform, as well as the feature that shows the places where traffic will be charged. Before that, the tool was only reporting whether a track was shipped or not.
According to the research giant, the account forecasts shown are based on information collected from the authorities responsible for maintaining the billing system. On some roads, tolls vary depending on the day of travel and the time the vehicle passes the cab, as well as the payment method used by the driver.
