An update is rolling out to Google Maps on Google Play, bringing with it the ability to check prices of gas at stations near you, as well as the function of adding detours to your trip during navigation.

Once updated, users inside of the Maps application can search for nearby gas stations, with the price of gas and the station’s name displayed in the results. For example, you will search for gas, and a Shell, Chevron, and BP station will pop up. You can then choose which station to drive to depending on how much you would like to spend. 

In addition to gas prices, during navigation, users can add custom detour stops, such as a grocery store, gas station, restaurant, or other pitstop to an ongoing trip. This means no more backing out your current navigation in order to search and find whatever you are looking for.

The update should hit all users’ devices soon through Google Play.
