Got my M3 in June in San Diego. Looked at the list of charging stations and went to the closest one. It was in an airport garage and had a cut off time info on the wall. I was past the cut off so I turned around to go to the next one. I had to pay the garage $17 to get out. It would help if the navigator gives this info. The next one was also in a garage. We skipped it and went to one farther out by Qualcomm.

Besides superchargers, you really should assume that you don't have a right to use a charger and become familiar with each one. Destination chargers give free energy, so more likely than not they're not 100% goodwill.

For long trips, you will want superchargers, so destination chargers will be local and that means you can easily become familiar with each one.
