    The Delaware Valley club is more geared towards South Jersey. The Google Group that I linked is more North and Central Jersey. If in doubt, join both.

    Interesting - it still doesn't show up on my App even after rebooting. North Brunswick still shows as the closest (which it thinks is 15 miles away rather than the correct distance of 23 miles), while Basking Ridge is 20 miles. Still not showing in the car's Nav.

    I believe the app shows geographical distance(kinda straight line) vs driving distance and hence the shorter estimate..

    FWIW, I submitted a request to update Google maps about this new location, i chose a physical spot on the map but I used 415 king George rd as the address since that is the closest address(bank building), the Tesla website doesn’t list this as of yet..

    is it normal for the car to have a high pitch whine under acceleration while driving to the supercharger? my screen said pre conditioning for supercharger... first time i guess using one since the update

    I have heard of this. Apparently if you navigate to a supercharger the car does prep the battery for faster/better charging. Might be a good reason to always navigate to a supercharger even if you know exactly where it is.

    I would like to go but I have avoided joining Facebook. Is there some way I can confirm without going to Facebook?

    Are you referring to the Aug 4th East Brunswick meetup? That is coordinated via the Google Group, not Facebook.

    Stopped by here yesterday around lunch time. I was the only car there and the speed was very good...~135kwh. Walked around looking for something to eat, didnt feel like a burger so I went into the pizza place....clean, friendly and the pizza was quite good.
