    I enjoy PlugShare. Until Tesla has community feedback and pictures, I will continue to use it.

    agreed - Plugshare is great for updates on which stalls to avoid and where is good to eat etc.
    It would be so much nicer if that were built into the Nav

    I’m still surprised this one hasn’t made Tesla.com find us.

    San Antonio SpC is there...

    I find that when a charge stall starts to behave finicky, it can still function well, on a random basis, even minutes after the first report in Plugshare of its 'finickiness'. My guess is that the inverters dedicated to each charger have some soft failures that are intermittent. On the other hand, visible damage to the charger stalls doesn't just fix itself overnight -- and typically remains damaged for months before a Tesla tech gets around to servicing the site. Having said that, Plugshare reports of stall 'outages' tends to be 'too-much-information'. Basically, each stall is a little roulette wheel, with a 95% chance of giving a good charge. Even after getting a good charge for 10 minutes, I've seen a stall go to 0 Amps... so, even during a charge, a stall can go from 'operational' to 'failed' and then back to 'operational'. I doubt Tesla even has reliable telemetry from each site... although, about 18 months ago, when their 'Roadside Assistance' line was properly staffed, they would give suggestions of what stalls were 'better' and which ones were 'problematic'. My guess, is they just looked at plugshare for you you, and so, their opinions were little more than guesses.

    Austin Texas Research Blvd location is now on the find us map.

    interesting that the downtown and cedar park locations are still there.
