Google Maps for iPhone Now Shows Places to Stop Along Your Route, Makes It Easy to Find Cheap Gas

iOS: Last year, Google Maps on Android got a new feature that made it easy to search for places and cheap petrol along your current route in order to make a pit stop. Now, the feature's on iOS. Previously, searching for places — such as petrol stations, restaurants, cafes or whatever else — along a route required searching for it manually and then rerouting yourself. Now, searching for stuff along your route is super easy. Just pick a destination, start navigation, then tap the magnifying glass icon. Here, you can search for a variety of different services to make a quick pit stop at. Even better, when you search for petrol stations along your route, you'll also see prices, so it's easy to make sure you're always getting the cheapest petrol around. The update is still rolling out, so if you don't see it right now, check back later today.

    I got the update, but petrol prices is maybe a US thing.
    What I'd like more than anything is the ability to set the "avoid tolls" as a default, since i live so close to a toll road that it's always the primary choice.
