Toll roads option in the client

Postby fvwazing » Wed Oct 31, 2012 8:18 am

I think xteejx wants to point out that you are posting over a particular road in a thread that is dedicated to the worldwide implications of tollroads.
As there is no specific tollroad-thread for CA you may want to put your remarks here: viewtopic.php?t=22205

Or an indicator, like this? If you get a list of alternatives it is in there too.

I'm sure no one knows for sure.


I never mind a good rant, foxitrot. Helps setting priorities at times!

Dirt road was last looked into maybe less than a year ago, and it SEEMED at the time a relative thing - a percentage of total route length rather than a fixed distance. Bgodette tried something in his testrig that was obliterated soon after that, if I am not mistaken. With hindsight, that may have been sabotage :evil:!

With avoid-tolls I can't ever get a route - I doubt there is proper majors and minors connections through all Portugal (I know one of the roads I need to fix here) and then through Spain and France, whilst without avoid-tolls I get one route - but timeout if I ask for alternatives. It's 1400KM to Paris.

Too bad it doesn't work for such long distances. Back in 2005-2007 navigation worked perfectly form me with Wayfinder and Nokia devices - Düsseldorf-Lisbon is 2400KM. (full disclosure: I might have been involved in the shameful destruction of Wayfinder, I apologize for my small part in it)


Expect all this to change when the roadrank-based longdistance routing is in place. Probably change for worst first, hopefully for better later ;-).

Given the extreme diversity in prizing schemes in use worldwide - don't hold your breath. Pricing can vary upon vehicletype, number of axes, number of occupants, season, day of the week, time, traffic conditions on other roads.

Too subtle, maybe?

Yes, and have it blink and make it bigger. I agree with you that it is easily overseen. And don't listen to the young folks, by the time they need glasses they will be happy to have a big red blinking toll-sign too.

I've not read the whole thread, so apologies if this has been requested previously!

After a journey which involved a suggested route along the M6 toll, I enabled the avoid toll option to get a more 'pocket friendly' route, only to 'forget' to disable it on a journey where the expected route would have been the Dartford Crossing. The suggested route on that trip was via the Blackwall Tunnel, thus doing what it should, but not an ideal route for me!

I would like to see an 'avoid toll roads' option on a per journey basis. Some toll roads I prefer to avoid (ie M6 toll) whereas others I don't mind as the alternative route is a little convoluted (ie Dartford Crossing or Humber Bridge!)

Perhaps a popup that only appears if the global avoid is unselected and the route suggested then contains a toll road?
