    I just finalized my order today, and I'm getting excited.

    Does Tesla's nav system include an overlay for charging stations? Is it any good?

    What apps (for iPhone/iPad) do people use to find paid and free charging stations?

    thanks!

    No. Absolutely silly that EV stations are not included in the maps (except for Tesla superchargers, which is pretty worthless at this point in the game). Such an easy fix, too.

    Superchargers and any other station you have visited in the past are available on the map.

    @glenn - which everyone will have soon enough.

    @OP, two apps that I use are recargo and plugshare. Both work on iOS and Android. They are merging so expect only one to remain (recargo, I suspect). plugshare has a nice trip planner feature tht hope shows up in the final result.

    My only real complaint about both is they don't distinguish between high and low amperage ISO stations. I want to know where those 70A j1772s are.
