    hello guys i was just wondering what if i took my car to America would i be able to use the supercharger network there? my tesla has a IEC62196 Type2 port on the side shown here [​IMG]
    if so how ? is there an adapter ? or i am stuck using my Mobile Connector there or maybe that wont work too with Americas voltages

    also as far as i know the car uses Navigon for turn by turn navigation that is fixed to the region that you bought the car in , basically i only have navigation in Europe and nowhere else outside there , is there a way around that ?

    North American Superchargers won't connect to your Euro car and no adapter is available. For Navigation you would have to use a separate GPS device. Not familiar with the Euro Mobile connector. An adapter for that might be possible.

    Perhaps check with Tesla directly... (They might have an adapter or think of making one...) (Would be nice to have one "go the other way") Especially useful for Grey Market Russian Model S, I would guess.

    From TMC 2015, I seem to remember the Russian guys mentioning that their members buy US and EU Teslas...
