New Google Now card shows up displaying ‘Gas’ stations on your route

By Daniel Tyson


Google is always changing the contextually aware cards displayed in Google Now, with new ones showing up whether from third-parties now, or from Google themselves. A new one has shown up, which is showing ‘Gas’ stations on your route.

First spotted by Google+ user Kevin Mclauglin, the card shows a visual indicator of your route, showing any nearby Gas stations on the way, letting you know directions to the nearest one and how far it is out of your way to reach it.

Obviously Gas is the US parlance for petrol station, so whether the title of the card remains if/when this card hits Australian Google+ users isn’t clear. There’s been quite a few cards which have shown up in the US but never made it to our shores and this could be no different.

Have you seen a card with Petrol stations showing on your route?

He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it. Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
