HOW DO YOU FIND CHARGING STATIONS ON THE GO?

Top Top JOHN B, MN

THE BUILT-IN GPS SYSTEM,

though I do not use public stations very often as my driving needs do not require them.

Top Top MICHELE W.L, TX

I USE THE NAVI SYSTEM TO SEE WHERE THEY ARE WHEN DRIVING.

When I am at work or home I get on to ChargePoint or use PlugShare on my phone.

Top Top JOEL E, NC

PLUGSHARE AND CHARGEPOINT APPS.

I've gone through a lot of different apps, and it seems like PlugShare has it more together than most of the other ones. I also like that I can more easily keep the station details up-to-date with PlugShare. I just wish other people in my area were helping keep them up-to-date. ChargePoint is still useful too because most stations here are on the ChargePoint network, and the app lets you see more details and control the stations.

IF I'M GOING TO VENTURE IN A NEW DIRECTION I CAREFULLY PLAN MY TRIP FROM HOME AHEAD OF TIME USING THE PLUGSHARE WEBSITE.

I use the smartphone apps to confirm station availability in real time, at least for the networked ones.

Top Top DAVID L, WA

I USUALLY HAVE ALREADY INVESTIGATED THE OPTIONS BEFORE GOING SOMEWHERE

but I prefer PlugShare simply because it's user based. I have yet to use a private plug but I love the concept.

Top Top BOB A, CA

CHARGEPOINT MOST OF THE TIME.

WE FIND THAT PLUGSHARE IS THE BEST SOURCE

since it is not brand specific. We use the phone app. Sometimes we use the database in the car.
