Google Rolls Out Two-wheeler Mode on Maps in India
Google today has announced new Two-wheeler mode in Maps for India at the Google for India 2017 event. It has rolled out the new mode first in India before it goes to other parts of the world. The new two-wheeler mode is placed alongside the other modes which are Car, Foot, and Train.
Two-wheeler mode is aimed at giving motorcycle riders in India with better navigation and directions that are best suited for them and their vehicle to travel. It makes total sense that Google is launching such a feature first in India, as it is the largest two-wheeler market in the world. Two-wheeler mode in Google Maps shows trip routes that use “shortcuts” which are not accessible to cars and trucks.
The mode also offers with customized traffic and arrival time estimations and will also show major landmarks on the route map since most of the two-wheelers rely on that. Other Google Maps features such as traffic situations, lanes, voice navigation are also present. Two-wheeler mode is already available on Google Maps for everyone across the country.
