    I'm having a hard time finding a good map that 1. Shows all of the Superchargers, and 2. Allows you to get driving directions between those superchargers.

    I'm aware of the EVTRipPlanner map/website, and for several reasons (that I won't bore you with), I REALLY don't like using it.

    I'm looking for a much more simple interface. I've been able to find individual Superchargers on Google Maps, I'm just wondering if there is a custom Google Maps that shows all of the superchargers, AND allows navigation.

    Thanks :)

    When typing in (on Maps) "Tesla Superchargers", I get all. As I zoom out, there are more. If I type in Tesla Supercharger Corning, it comes up. Then I ad "to Tesla supercharger Shasta" and it draws a line, gives me miles, etc. I can move the line. It changes miles.

    But I am talking my home computer, not the Tesla screen. So I guess I don't know what you mean.

    When I enter "Tesla Superchargers" into Google Maps it shows all locations that Google associates with Tesla, including showrooms, service centers, the Fremont factory, Palo Alto HQ, etc. It does not just show Supercharger locations.

    Plus it's not up to date. For instance, Google doesn't know about the San Diego supercharger.

    Contrary to popular opinion, Google does not "know all".

    I don't believe that. Google and Apple do know all!

    Well, I hope they at least know how much I hate the new Google Maps. I've tried to convey this to them!

    Well look at that. They're showing a permit for one in Boise, ID. Now if they'd just do the same for Twin Falls, ID my Tesla life would get even better. :)
