My Tesla console is missing some CHARGING STATIONS locations close to me.

    I have a MALL that has public charging stations in the parking lot and they are not listed on my MAP on my 2014 Model S.
    this concerns me. Anyone know how, who updates these maps so they can be notified of these missing stations and/or add them to mine?

    I don't know the answer to your question but if you haven't already you may wish to bookmark Plugshare and use it in conjunction with Tesla's charging map when looking for a charge.

    Yeah, the built in map only shows Tesla stations (Superchargers, service centers I think, destination chargers), plus it learns any location where you charge.

    The Tesla nav does not list public (J1772 or Chademo) chargers. It only lists Tesla destination chargers and Superchargers. On your computer, tablet, or smartphone, use plugshare.com to see and list public chargers.

    This OP indicates it was optimized for the Tesla Model S and not for a PC browser when you are at home.

    PlugShare now optimized for the Model S

    the tesla nav system does not note EVERY charging station, it lists tesla destination hpwc, super chargers and places where you have charged.
    you need to seek out plugshare for a more comprehensive listing of places to charge

    Only if you are out of range of Tesla superchargers AND you get the warning on your navigation screen that states you are out of range of Tesla Superchargers will you then see non-Tesla plug sites on your navigation screen. This is part of Tesla's way to ensure Owners do not run out of electricity. I first saw this when I was driving cross country, and saw it recenlty as well on a trip to the Outer Banks of NC.

    That's right, but in the car you don't have to type tesla.plugshare.com, you can just type plugshare.com and it automatically shows the Tesla optimized page.
    The reason to type tesla.plugshare.com on a PC at home is to display the page just as you would see it in the car. Then the settings icon includes a choice to filter charging stations at hotels only. It's useful for planning a trip when you are at home to see which hotels have charging stations, without having to click on each point on the map to see if it's a hotel.
