Over the “next few weeks,” an update to the Android app will allow you to view gas stops along your route, including their price for regular-grade fuel, as well as how long much time the detour will add to your planned trip.
Speaking of detours, you can now tap a magnifying glass icon at the top right corner of your screen to pull up a few floating action buttons for potential detours. By default, it lists the aforementioned gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants and coffee shops, but you can also find more places by typing a name or using voice commands.
It’s a welcome feature that’s been a long time coming. Finally, you won’t have to reset your navigation every time you make a last-minute stop — or if you just need a quick bathroom break — on your route. No word on iOS support yet, but we imagine it’ll come soon.
