The crowd-sourced navigation app on Monday announced a new toll pricing feature, one that the company says has been one of the most requested tools for some time. As such, actual toll prices may vary from the figure given by Waze. This way, you can select another path right from the beginning instead of struggling to find a different one right on the road reducing your chances to actually avoid the toll.
We spoke to a product manager at the Google-owned navigation app about the gargantuan effort that was involved in mapping some 400,000 tolls. However, this new Waze update will tell you about the Tollgates and how much fees you have to pay there.
Most navigation apps do let you know whether the road has tolls or not. You might be asked to add your vehicle type and other information before you begin. That said, this data is crowdsourced, like other Waze alerts for accidents, police and so on - it does not rely on data furnished by toll road authorities.
Its latest trick is helping you prepare for toll roads on your next journey. However, it is only made available for the users of the United States and Canada. It keeps on changing when the toll prices change.
