Google Maps Gets Motorcycle Mode in India

Google is adding two-wheeler mode only a week after Waze added a similar mode. It also has the most widely used mobile operating system, a solid video streaming platform, excellent maps and navigation, cloud services and the list just goes on.

"We don't adapt maps for India. It is now available in India starting today, with plans to roll out the feature in other countries in the coming months". Google announced the feature at its Google for India event. However, India is the largest two-wheeler country in the world having close to 18 million two-wheelers sold in the period of 2016-17, representing 70 percent of all registered motor vehicles.

They take your shoestrings. "We get back over here and the consequences were even stiffer than China". The men's exchanges escalated from there, with Trump calling Ball "an ungrateful fool".

The feature was initially launched a few weeks back as a beta-update for testers, but now anyone can get it from PlayStore (Android) or AppStore (iOS). That is a good thing for regular auto drivers, too, as it could potentially help alleviate congestion on roads, cutting down on transit times for everyone.

According to Google two-wheeler riders take the help of landmarks to navigate. The new feature has started rolling-out in Google Maps today and should be available on all devices. But that's a thing of the past as Google Maps now feature a two-wheeler mode. For example, Google Maps calculated an estimated 256KM trip would take roughly around forty minutes less time on a two-wheeler as compared to if taken via a big vehicle. The map shows the most optimal route for two-wheeler drives, in which, the travel time and routes can be different depending upon the real time congestion on the roads. The new mode will scout shortcuts that aren't accessible to cars and trucks, and provide customized traffic and arrival time estimates.
