How often do you find yourself stuck in traffic despite being on a two-wheeler? Do you wish to have the foreknowledge of the busy roads so that your bike does not turn into a snail? Google Maps has now separate options for the bike riders too.
Google Map’s Two Wheeler Mode Is Now Live In India
With Google Map’s new feature “Two-wheeler Mode“, you can’t just keep a track of the how-about of roads, but also the information related to the parking facility in your destination.
To make sure you don’t waste your time in taking the longer route, “Two-wheeler Mode” in Google maps considers even the small spaces on the roads that your bike can withstand. In addition to it, you get to know about the closure of the roads and the availability of parking slots as well.
According to one of the blogs of Google, the “Two-wheeler Mode” is designed while keeping in mind the dynamics of roads in India, “It shows trip routes that use “shortcuts” not accessible to cars and trucks. It also provides customized traffic and arrival time estimations. And since so many Indians rely on local landmarks for navigation, two-wheeler mode will show major landmarks on the route so that riders can plan their trip before starting, and don’t have to keep checking the phone on the go.”
With aforementioned features, the users will also get to see these options: roads closed, businesses open and local events happening in their neighbourhood. The option can be found right beside the other driving modes in Google Maps version 9.67.1 and comes with several options. When the users will select the “Two-wheeler Mode“, the map will show a bike icon on the map and the time they will take to reach their destination. While, it’s only available in Android at present, it’s soon going to be available for Apple.
