Electronic toll booths that automatically debit toll charges from a prepaid account associated with a hardware tag are popular. However, having insufficient balance in the prepaid account can cause the user’s journey to be interrupted, as the user needs to recharge the account before crossing a toll booth. This disclosure describes techniques that enable the management of electronic toll accounts from within a digital map or navigation application and provide an easy process for payment. The techniques include real-time balance checks and predictive functionality based on the user’s location and route and can help ensure that users have sufficient funds to cover upcoming toll charges.
