    For some reason our S has added our home as a charging station, and another home about 6 houses down from us. Sometimes it says we are parked at one location, and at other times, the second location. How do I delete the wrong loction from the map?

    I told you not to plug in at your mistress's house ... now you're screwed ;)

    seriously though, I am unaware of any way to delete previously used charging locations.

    LOL I am not touching that quote with a ten foot pole. :biggrin:

    To OP:
    Either its a SW bug (others have reported weird GPS locations) or the satellite/3G signal maybe poor in your location, causing inaccurate map locations.
    Try deleting the spot listed in the Visited Chargers screen (there is EDIT button there), then let it reassign. Hopefully at the correct location.

    ohhh right this was fairly recent I think...not there with earlier versions. looking back at the changelog Model S software/firmware changelog - Tesla Motors Club - Enthusiasts & Owners Forum

    version 5.9
    ENHANCEMENTS
    Superchargers and visited chargers
    Charging locations are now shown by default on the map and the menu items have been removed. You can now delete items from the visited chargers list.

    forgot about that.


    so rejoice, now you can delete it and sleep with peace knowing that your wife will never find out where you were at (well, unless she's tracking your history w\ VisibleTesla).

    Good one :wink:

    The second site is just 5 houses away - I think the GPS screwed up, but it leaves two charging stations within a block. Then, when I went to set my home loction while parked in my driveway, it was saying I was at the other location ???

    I had a bunch of extraneous charging markers. I deleted the extras after I upgraded to 6.0, and they haven't come back, yet. Fingers crossed.

    Bumping this dinosaur. I can't figure out how to delete the locations. The concern came up when getting my car back from service and I can't delete my house from the list of charging locations.

    I believe there isn't a way, which as you point out has some privacy implications for loaners (or similar shared cars). Unless this somehow magically changed since 8.0...

    Firmware 8.0

    I couldn't figure this out either, which is why I revisited this thread. I remember this ability introduced some time ago and now that I have an actual use for it, it's no longer there?

    Nope. No longer there, service center had no clue how to proceed either.

    I think it's pretty creepy that someone who gets in the car can look up every place this car has ever charged. Not every Tesla owner and service worker is so innocent.
