    All,
    Google Maps has a check box if you want to avoid toll roads. Here's my question: I travel the 110 South of L.A. and always use the FasTrack lanes for free in my EV. When I fire up Maps, it looks like it isn't aware that I will be using the FasTrack lanes, and often calculates bad estimated time of arrival.

    Any way to get Google Maps to wise up? This seems eminently doable from a software standpoint...

    Bunch of cars on the 110 reporting back. Some going 5 MPH, some going 65 MPH. Google: "Will you be using the FasTrack lanes or not"?

    How hard could it be?

    Are there other map apps that can do this?

    none that I am aware of, the gps available to us is not precise enough for this.
