Waze Traffic Navigation App Updated with Toll Prices

Waze Traffic Navigation App Updated with Toll Prices

The new toll price feature is great because it offers users the option to avoid fees if they're looking to cut costs, but also tells them exactly how much cash they need to have on hand to pay for all those tolls along the way.

Google, which acquired Israel-based Waze in 2013 for a reported $1.1 billion, has spent the last few years adding many of Waze's features into its own Maps app. The Google subsidiary is very open about that facet of its operations, pointing out that that this feature underscores that the app is "truly people-powered and community-driven". You can check more about it once the app is updated. The data is sourced from the community of user drivers. Yes, you can actually see the prices of tolls on the map within the app.

Meanwhile, Juventus' Chief Financial Officer Giorgio Ricci said: "We are particularly proud of the partnership signed with Konami ".

The toll feature is working now for Waze users in the USA and Canada - just make sure you have the latest version of the app so you can take advantage of all of the features the free software has to offer.

The Waze update is now rolled out for both, Android and iOS smartphone users. The company says it's also started mapping and testing the feature on European roads, before doing so in Asia in the coming weeks, hinting it should be able to provide toll prices around the world soon. There are more than 5,000 toll roads in the continental United States, in addition to tolled bridges and tunnels. Waze says that it will initially be supporting data for over 5,000 miles of toll roads across the continental USA, so that a route can show not only length of journey and duration, but the potential cost of having to pay to use different stretches of highway or bridges. The pricing data will show up as a "warning" in your route.
