Let’s say that you are driving home from an area that you don’t know very well. Soon you realize that the car needs to be filled up with gas. Well, a quick search will tell you which gas stations are nearby, but it won’t tell you which of those gas stations are on the route you’re following.
Well, Google Now has fixed this problem. It will now display a card that will show you “Gas Stations On Your Route.” That should be very convenient for many of us.
You don’t have to be navigating with the app for the card to pop up. Several users who have seen this new card were just driving, so Google Now is apparently making predictions on its own about your direction and your speed to bring it up. Of course it isn’t always going to be right. However, all you have to do if it is wrong, is swipe it away. So it shouldn’t be that much of a bother.
Being able to find a gas station along your route is the difference between walking in the cold and not walking in the cold, so most of us would gladly welcome this new addition.
