Google Maps adds two-wheel mode for motorbike routes
07 December, 2017, 02:42 | Author: Pamela Mathis
The new feature appears to be rolling out initially in India, and I got a chance to check it out here. 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.
As pointed out in screenshots provided by Android Police, this mode cuts off a few minutes off of shorter rides, and up to an hour off of longer ones. Google says that the feature will arrive in more countries in the coming months. First of all, you have to choose the new two-wheeler mode if you are riding a bike and searching for a destination in Maps. "It also provides customised traffic and arrival time estimations".

Now with the latest update, the app gets an India-specific "Two Wheeler Mode". Motorcycle and scooter users will now be able to navigate their way with the two wheeler mode in their navigation. While planning the route, a rider can view major local landmarks on the way which will be useful during navigation. The route map, too, has been completely redesigned for two wheeler mode, with more landmarks, as people tend to learn about the routes using landmarks before starting a journey. For instance, offline maps, landmark navigation, which we launched in India first are now popular with other map users across the world. It also gives data about the parking situation at their destination, a convenient component that was beforehand found in the auto mode.
The feature, of course, differs from the bicycle routing option, which may involve access points not open to motorbikes. Now, the search giant is expecting 2x user growth in the country alone on the Google Maps.
