Compare prices with PACE Drive
With the PACE Drive app, you can not only pay directly at the gas pump, you can also compare prices. This is how it works:
Step 1: Install the app
Download the free PACE Drive app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and sign up. All you have to do to register is enter your email address. You can also easily sign up with your Google account or your Apple ID.
Step 2: Open the map
Grant the PACE Drive app the necessary rights: You can use the most convenient way to search for gas stations in your area if you allow PACE Drive to access your exact location.
When you open the app or click on the small map icon in the bottom left of the menu, you will then see a map with your current location and the surrounding gas stations.
Zoom in or out and swipe left or right to look around. Tap on the gas station symbol on the map to see the prices for the various fuels, opening hours and other gas station services. The gas stations are marked in color on the map so that you can classify and compare their prices directly:
- Green stands for a cheap,
- Orange for an average,
- and Red for a relatively expensive price per liter.
- The blue marker highlights gas stations where you can use the app to make mobile payments.
Step 3: Look around and adjust the filters
Are you looking for something specific? No problem! Simply adjust the filters: To do this, tap on the line above the menu icons, which also shows the currently set filters. Here, you can choose from a wide range of search options.
Please note, however, that PACE Drive will of course only show you what you are looking for. If too many filters are set, you may have to search longer until a gas station meets all the requirements. In this case, you can quickly reset your settings with the “Reset filter” button.
Step 4: Price comparison by list
For a direct comparison, you can click on the list symbol at the bottom of the screen. This opens the list of gas stations in your area. The filter bar shows you the criteria according to which the gas stations are arranged.
You can also configure this list to better see what you’re looking for:
To do this, tap on the filter bar above the menu icons. In addition to the filters you already know from the map, the list can be sorted by price or distance. You can also specify the radius around your location in which the shown gas stations should be located.
If you want to conveniently compare prices, just tap on “Price” and close the filter selection. At the top of the list, you will now see the gas station that is currently the cheapest.
Step 5: Set favourites
Do you already know the cheapest gas stations in your area and just want to quickly check which of these is currently offering the lowest price? Then the favorites list will help you!
As previously described, you can get more information about each gas station if you tap on its symbol on the map. There is a star icon that you can use to save this gas station as a favorite. You can find the star at the bottom right of the map section, which shows you the way to the gas station.
In the list, you can then simply tap on “Your favorites” and the prices will be displayed at a glance.
