    Here’s a "Supercharger availability" report for U.S. locations

    It’s super easy to check status for a location and report updates.
    Owners can report available stalls when they are at a supercharger or check availability on their way to a supercharger.

    Supercharger Availability

    I’ve added CA superchargers. I’ll add rest of U.S. if there’s interest.

    As we know, Tesla doesn’t currently tell us this info. Superchargers can get very busy especially rush-hour or weekends

    Thanks,
    FredTMC

    That's pretty cool!
    Bookmarked the site on my phone! Will use it as often as I can

    Neat idea, and I will use it!

    Forgive me and my ignorance. I cannot find your program at the "Apple Store." Is it not available for these sorts of smart phones? :confused:

    Thanks! It's currently just a webpage. See link above. If we get a lot of people using it I'll consider building an App

    Whenever I go by SJC, I'll update its status. It's near my sons school.

    If you expand this....Canada would be of interest to a number of us (like me!).

    Has anyone heard how long before Tesla starts pushing this data to cars or puts it online? Kinda weird they haven't already done that since they have the data...

    I really hope they make that dashboard public, even with a slight delay in refresh time it would be very useful, especially when they install more SC sites closer together, drivers can stop at the less crowded locations.

    Elon claimed that this was a feature in the 6.2 trip planner but so far we've seen no indication that it polls the SpC in real time.

    Wow, seems like Fountain Valley supercharger is full a lot today. Two separate reports listed as "full" (zero stall available)

    maybe I should add a field for "how many cars waiting"

    Great idea, I certainly hope it catches on. I will do my part. Who knows, maybe it will even inspire Tesla to provide access to the "dashboard" data.

    This report now works for ALL supercharger locations (U.S. and international)

    There’s also a field now for “# of Cars Waiting” (if user says all stalls are in use)

    Would it be possible toget the location data and select the nearest Supercharger automatically?

    Yes, pretty easy to do. LogMySc.com does it.

    I will use this, thanks. Just not soon because the closest SpC is > 100 miles away.

    Is an ICEd stall considered the same as one occupied for charging purposes?

    Nice job Fred.

    Could you add, maybe next to the Supercharger name, the total number of stalls there.

    Thanks.
