Activate “avoid toll on roads” - Google Maps App

If you navigate with your Android Smartphone and Google Maps while planning a trip, then you might wanted the option to hide roads with toll. This is in the Google Maps app of course possible, but this option is very easy to overlook. We show you now where you find the option to avoid the toll roads in the Google Maps app of your Android smartphone.

Please open Google Maps on your smartphone. Type the start and destination address. Between the two addresses you can now find the "Options" button. This is somewhat inconspicuous.
Select here now the entry "Avoid Tolls" to not use this road category.
 
Then avoiding any toll road in a new calculation of the route with Google Maps is active and you can save money.

For newer phones without the option menu, you have a microphone in the upper right instead. Click on the mic and say "avoid toll roads" and Google will acknowledge the request for the current trip.

I want to see travel time for both tolls and avoid tolls, sometimes the difference is 3 minutes for an $8 toll in New York. The new update makes it take even more steps to press "avoid tolls".

How do you make a Google Maps keep the no tolls setting? I want to always avoid tolls, and don't want to always go into settings everytime I look for a new address.
