Charging in Charlotte NC

I thought Tesla cars could find any charger through their software?
You're mostly right. Hit the charge icon on the map/nav display, and it brings up "all" the Superchargers. There's the occasional weird one, though. Warsaw, NC comes to mind. I think Tesla has demoted this SC due to the non-Tesla friendly sentiments of the host hotel. It's still there, and it still works, but Tesla won't advertise the location. Also, the Tesla system only shows Tesla superchargers and Tesla destination chargers. I think the OP's question was more broad, potentially including other options like ChargePoint, etc.

I echo what TexasEV wrote, make sure you are using PlugShare. The app in invaluable for finding chargers. I also recommend the Chargepoint app and registering for a Chargepoint account in case you come across one of their chargers. They are usually free to use, but require a RFID card or the app on a phone that can do NFC. Good luck!

Thanks for clearing that up.
