    New feature/plugin idea for RR

    While pondering on my upcoming drive to upstate NY, I was thinking about how much tolls would cost and thought about implementing some type of toll calculator in RR. For instance, it could detect your location via GPS and figure out the cost of tolls on your current road or even better, calculate the totaly cost of tolls for your routed trip. Good idea, yay or nay? Anyone know if this is even possible?

    is there a website that lists how much each toll station is nationwide? i'm pretty sure that's your only hope

    This would be awsome, and I am sure someone could figure it out.
    I tried a quick search for toll roads but got nothing. There has to be some type of listing out there for toll roads.
    If not, this could be a great money maker for some webmaster / internet savvy entrepreneur.

    you'd need a good list of tolls+locations unless you actually enter the information of where/how much the tolls are..
