Just learn a basic Hi/Lo count and bomb a couple shoes while you charge!
This is my review of this SpC location based on our recent trip:
Location - not bad. The SCs are physically located in the parking lot of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, which is about 5 minutes off I-44. The casino even offers free shuttle to pick you up and take you to the casino, which is actually less than 5-minute walk away.
Charging rate - excellent. Followed the general rule of (125kW - battery SOC) rate.
Facilities - good. The hotel / casino, as expected, has a small food court and buffet. The bathrooms are pretty clean.
Overall - giving it 4 out of 5 stars for the convenient location, excellent charging rate, and decent accommodation (if you don't the casino set up).
I hope it is OK to post a note about this supercharger station here. I have charged here twice (on my way south and on return north). When going south, I was directed to the new supercharger (behind the Hard Rock Casino) without a problem. When going back, I was directed to a completely different place nearby where there is NO supercharger. It appears that there are two Cherokee Streets in town. I ended up at the local fire department address on a Sunday with no idea where I was. It was a stressful time with only 20 miles of battery left. I hope Google Maps/Tesla /Cherokee Nation can resolve this one.
Nice charger, though.
No idea what you were using to navigate there, but if you just push the lightning bolt icon in the Nav and then push the supercharger icon (also looks like a lightning bolt) over Catoosa, you really can't screw it up.
Also, which "new" supercharger are you talking about? The supercharger at the Hard Rock hotel and casino in Catoosa has been there over 2 years. Did something change?
Used my standard Tesla nav system enroute from ABQ via Tucumcari to Ontario, Canada. Made no changes to the system and was directed incorrectly. Yes, pushing the lightning bolt and navigating to the correct location worked. That doesn't mean that the system was working properly.
No- nothing has changed at the supercharger. My mistake.
Weird. I still have no idea what happened then. You're saying it worked fine when routing directly to the supercharger, but didn't work when routing in the context of the entire trip?
I just charged there a little over a week ago myself, and about 4 months before that. My cars nav antenna was not working last week but Plugshare was some help. My wireless antenna got locked up (tried resets and customer service) and quit working while passing through Oklahoma from Michigan, all the rest of the way back to Arizona. Then, It just started working all of the sudden before I had the chance to get to SC. Nav couldn't locate my cars position. Now that was a pain... Bad cell service did not help my phone GPS either.
That is correct..
