    Nabiac is a very useful spot.
    It has been challenging going to places like Forster, Taree etc, because they are just short of the Port Mac SC.
    Heatherbrae to Forster to Heatherbrae doesn't leave much room for error.

    Just Bumping this one again in case it got lost.
    Has anyone replied to Maree re testing the Jindabyne NRMA CHADEMO charger?
    I am 440Km away and don’t have a CHADEMO adapter so can’t help.
    Anyone in the area anytime soon?

    Thanks!

    I can confirm that as of this morning I sent out a patrol - charger working normally, someone had just clicked the emergency stop button and didn't reset after.

    Great. It might be useful for you to get the contact details of nearby shop owners etc!

    I'm interested in what sort of remote communications you have to each site? I would have thought you'd have detailed status information. Do you lose access to the comms when then emergency stop button has been hit?

    Great idea re getting shop owners details!

    We have remote communications in place and are currently looking at upgrading our monitoring capabilities.

    Hopefully won't be an issue again!

    Picton hasn't been *officially* added to the map, but coming soon according to this article:

    Bega, NSW has been added to the rollout map. Lots of coming soon locations, but not many switched on the past month or two: hopefully we’ll see lots of them operational after the Christmas break.

    That will be great news for Leaf an iMiev owners who will be able to weekend in the Southern Highlands using the Picton and Mittagong CHADEMOs.

    I've forgotten if all have been mentioned here, but the NRMA map is looking quite busy at the moment!

    Here is a snap in time for later comparison:

    I noticed in an article - sadly paywalled (about the Chargefox network) there was an incidental mention of a plan for an NRMA charge at the Gallipoli Victoria Cross Rest Area in Holbrook, so that's one more for the map :)

    What a difference a day makes, @Chuq .

    Today we've got the following added to the rollout map:
    - Glen Innes
    - Dubbo
    - Holbrook
    - Batemans Bay

    Does anyone know of the ACT chargers and Byron Bay charger have been upgraded to CCS2 from CCS1 yet? Or any others that used to be CCS1?

    I asked on the AEVA Sydney FB group but no response :(


    Found this info on the Hilltops Council website - might give an insight on future sites to expect...

    Looks like a few more unofficial possible sites:

    Wagga: https://www.wagga.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0012/104601/FINAL-VERSION-OC_17122018_AGN_AT-reduced.pdf

    Just to note.. I tried a few "more remote" locations such as Narrabri, Bourke, Cobar, Nyngan, Hay and Balranald - not a single hit on any of these town names. Could be that NRMA is not planning to spread out this far, or it could be that the records on their websites aren't as accessible as others. Or just a co-incidence.

    Something people may find useful for tracking (I notice my last post repeated locations from earlier in the thread) - still a work in progress!

    I absolutely don't mind at all, that's great! In fact I've updated with a few more "speculative" locations, you are welcome to take a look ;)
