    I don't quite know where to put this question.... mods move it if wrong location.

    Yesterday a new M3 owner looked up my home charger on plug share and asked about charging options in my town. I ended up riding around scouting a few hotels for 120v outlets for him and found a local hotel that recently opened and has a tesla charger out front.

    I added it to plug share, but don't have a clue how to tell Tesla about it... it is one of their HPWCs. I figure if it was put in under their free HPWC program, they'd know and add it to the map... but the maintenance manager didn't know about that program and it's not in the nav system of my MS.

    So... how do I get Tesla to become aware of it and add to the maps in the nav system?

    I guess you can try to leave the details on its generic contact webpage and hopefully, your message will be forwarded to the navigation system department.

    You could try submitting the form on the Tesla Charging partner site: Charging Partners | Tesla

    Or you could email the team directly: Destination Charging Team

    But does the hotel want to be listed? (I can't see why they would object, but you never know.)

    The odds of the information getting to the right place that way are even lower than the odds of any bug reported that way being addressed— if that’s possible.

    It takes more time to transcribe so I would recommend a detailed e-mail so Tesla can do copy and paste instead of voice.
