Google debuted a new “two-wheeler” mode for Google Maps on Tuesday as part of its Google India media event in New Delhi. The biker-based feature joins the existing driving, walking, and public transit modes for Google Maps users in India looking for the fastest possible directions to their intended destination.
The new mode for motorcycle and scooter users shows trip routes that use “shortcuts” not accessible to other vehicles, and provides customized traffic and arrival time estimates.
The two-wheeler mode also shows major landmarks along the planned route to help riders who rely on them for navigation, as is often the case in India.
