    It is a long stretch down I-95 to south Florida! Of course there are plenty of level2 (30A) stations along the way, and RV parks that can provide 40Amps to the Roadster,
    but are there any 70A level2 or Tesla HPC's along the way? I am sure there will be more high power chargers one day, but perhaps that day is now.

    Unfortunately the search tools do not seem to filter 70Amp level2. I am still searching though.
    Please reply if you know of 70Amp service along I-95 -especially Jacksonville through Melbourne area.

    -or perhaps, recommend convenient hotels down I-95 with EVSE nearby?

    The CarStations application filters Tesla HPCs, however their database doesn't show any along I-95 from South Carolina to Florida.

    Thanks for that info.
    I have seen the CarStations application. It shows level2 all over, but has no indication of 70Amp service.
    Generally all are 30Amp, but if the app offered the 30 or 70A search filter, it would be helpful.
    70A is a needed improvement in charging service, and I would willingly pay for this faster charging if it existed, and I could locate it!

    Did not go. Tesla cancelled my service appt.
    Said the FLA Tesla center would not be servicing my car.
    They did a ranger visit to my home later instead.
