    I noticed this too and it works great in Canada, not so much in the States. Perhaps a lot of them south of the border have older SC'ers and may or may not be able to be updated.
    Great feature though. I like the fact I can choose whether to charge at a certain SC or move on to the next one.
    Lawrence SC in Toronto is always never a good choice thanks to the service people charging customers cars there. This will have to stop soon though!

    It only works within a certain, as yet undefined, distance from your car (approximately 400-500 km).

    Yes, I've since discovered that. It works to the distance you have range for.

    Someone has now made this info available on the web, check out the Model S UI forum.

    When I looked at this a week or so ago, it was showing me the number of open stalls AND what the Idle Fees were. Now I noticed the line with the Idle Fee charge is gone.

    We used the Port Hope supercharger this week and noted the screen said 3 of 8 stalls available. The data was incorrect due to maintenance.

    When we arrived, the maintenance crew onsite advised only one stall worked and we charged on that with only 40 kW of power. I left a note on plugshare. I wish others would do the same...

    So the title "Hope of good Port" is still appropriate for that charger.

    Interesting. I wonder how Tesla gets their availability data? I assumed it was coming in real-time from the Superchargers themselves. Perhaps all Tesla can see are how many cars are currently charging at the site, then just subtract that number from the known number of stalls.

    It seems to be about a 5 minute update interval - I pulled into one that said "1 available" so I plugged in and started a time and it was almost exactly 5 minutes before it said "zero available".

    Pretty sure Tesla only has a data connection when a car is connected.

    If only there was a way they could tell if ICE cars are parked there too!
    They should put a compartment filled with ICE "Infraction" tickets on site so we can ticket offending cars as well as Teslas not plugged in!
