Lots like to useRandy, my knuckles don't scrape the ground when I walk, and I still have all my teeth.
Tell me, right now, from your car garaged in Alameda, how you can plan a trip to a distant location from your center display and take in all the possibilities and personal detours and roads less traveled? I have yet to figure this out. Hence, I use PlugShare as a companion to EVTripplanner. If Superchargers are listed only as a courtesy for completeness as you say, then it is a tool with questionable veracity. Their Q-and-A section is silent as to its commitment to accuracy, only stating, "...provides the most accurate and complete public charging map worldwide, with stations from every major network in North America and Europe." Their use of the superlative implies that competing maps are inferior, which is a very low bar today.
Indeed, if what you say is correct, then PlugShare needs to disclose this information clearly to all its users. PlugShare needs to explain what they do, how they do it, and then have a very clear and concise disclaimer that is not buried in the 150,000-word legalese end-user agreement or somewhere else. Maybe this is self-evident to you. But it is not self-evident to everyone.

I do like ABRP:
A Better Routeplanner
It is a shame that PlugShare has the politics it does, there are many things I would change with them if I could. I still like going to locations are updating the info on PlugShare, it appeals to my OCD. But that isn't a possibility for Superchargers.
Did they say where they were headed next?
Except for Urban chargers which are technically V2...All they install is V3 as far as I know from this point forward.
You should try it again, they went to Chrome, an entirely different beast. Of course, I drive a TM3 so it's possible the older Teslas still have painfully slow browsers.what do you do while the circle of doom spins 'round and 'round? My web connection from the car is s-l-o-w no matter where I am parked. A page loads in 45-90 seconds, and if I want to scroll down, it takes even more time. I have not used the web in the car for 3-4 years. Even at home!
2 (boxed) bases plus a third base for the support cabinets. Does that make it a V3?
With one set up for pulling in forward! I'm already dreaming of a family trip to Medora with the Model Y towing a lightweight camper making use of that spot as we charge up in Bismarck.
Except for Urban chargers which are technically V2...
I'm wondering which state/province/country will be the first to be 100% V3. Likely candidates that I can identify so far:
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island [they have one (1) V2]
Hope your trailer is low profile?
These guys were towing a Brick and was killing energy consumption at 75 mph.
Of course a mid-size SUV would also only be getting 10 MPG if that. so you would likely be filling the tank every 100 miles too.
