"The India-first feature is the new "two-wheeler mode" in Google Maps. India is also one of the top 3 country for user contributions for maps", Martha Welsh, Director, Google Maps, said making the announcement.
To help bikers find the most suitable route in India, Google on Tuesday incorporated navigation routes for two-wheelers with Voice Assistant capabilities in its Maps feature. Trips within town around 11AM were shorter by several minutes, while those that led you out of the city took significantly less time (Maps estimated that a 256KM trip would be roughly 40 minutes shorter on a bike than in a car). We're seeing the new mode as well, on the most recent form of the Android app.

Google believes that India is the largest two-wheeler market in the world and it was important to get this right.
According to Google two-wheeler riders take the help of landmarks to navigate. If you are on bicycle or motorcycle, this mode will show you the navigation routes specifically tailored for two-wheelers. The suggested routes are optimized for motorcycles and rely on reports from other riders. The new Two-wheeler modern Google Maps in India is seen alongside Drive, Train or Bus and Walk alternatives.
So far, this feature seems limited to India only, but it may expand to other areas where motorcycles are a more prevalent mode of transportation.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
