Google Now has a new feature that plenty of people are going to find handy. When you’re driving, Google Now will now show you gas stations along your route, whether you’re using navigation or not. The feature is most accurate while navigating, as you would expect, but Google Now will make an educated guess at your route if you’re not navigating. For example, if you frequently visit the mall, Google Now will guess that you’re headed that way if you’re following the same route and will display gas stations accordingly.
The feature is more likely to be useful when using the highway system. If you’ve been headed on the same stretch of freeway for a while, Google Now will be able to show you the closest gas stations so you don’t end up driving a few miles extra just to get gas.
The feature isn’t perfect (since Google can’t read your mind), but it might help you at some point down the road. And hey, it’s not exactly hard to get rid of an unneeded Google Now card, is it?
Let us know if you see it show up in Google Now!
