The in-app taxi meter uses Google Maps and GPS data to calculate the duration and distance travelled. This is different to the traditional taxi meter, which relies on the drive shaft of the vehicle to calculate distance and duration, and which switches between rates under a certain speed limit.
GoCatch calculates the fare using independent Google data and using the exact pick up location. The in-app meter is not subject to variation between different meters, vehicles, or their installation and maintenance.
