Google Maps has added a new feature that makes it that much more useful for long road trips. Searching for a pit stop to fill up on fuel or food has never been easier. Google Maps now allows users to add a detour or pit stop into their trip, and it will search for the closest options along the route. The feature even allows users to see prices of nearby gas stations (although it appears there is a preference for Mobile gas stations). If the user decides against making the pit stop, they can easily change their settings. This option had been available on Android for some time but it has now become available to iOS users as well and should prove an added convenience to all travelers.
