    Special version of Recargo for Model S browser! Find nearest charging stations...

    Nice going Recargo team!

    You can finally find public recharging stations in a format specifically designed for the Model S dashboard browser. Beautiful. (But remember that Tesla does not permit the browser to send back location info from the browser, so the site can't automatically find your nearest chargers like it should. Not their fault... hopefully Tesla will fix.)

    But it works beautifully on the Tesla screen, is touch-friendly and filters sites that support Model S charging, including superchargers.

    Announcement here: Recargo For Model S Drivers

    Use it here: recargo.com/tesla <--- bookmark that in your car!

    (No, I'm not affiliated with Recargo... but am excited to finally have this available.)

    Does the Tesla browser parse addresses and provide a link to route there?

    I hope Recago is working with Tesla and Google to just get them all showing on the G-map.

    This is definitely good news. Now that I can find charging stations easily I just need to learn how to use them. Such as: to charge at Walgreens do I need a special card to pay or set up an account. Thanks for any help.
