    I hope this is useful to someone other than myself.
    I have a 2012 Tesla Model S, apparently one of the first without the Tech Package.
    Why? This has been covered elsewhere in detail. If I were ordering another car
    I'd get the tech package now (my wife's car has it for instance) but at the time I didn't
    see the value in it since it didn't route around traffic and there was no supercharger network when I committed to my car! Fortunately my car has some of the features
    which are now in the tech package.

    OK, if you download this file Dropbox - tsla_na_scs_2015_02_22.ov2
    it contains all of the North America superchargers up to and including Shamrock, TX (added 2/21/2015). See the amazing web site Superchargers and select "Changes" and then "North America". If you see any issues please PM me. I will
    try to update the GPS file periodically.


    The file is in TomTom OV2 format. I think you can load the file into POI EDITOR (donation sent) and write out another format.

    For my GPS I started on this page:

    How can I install or remove third party POIs?

    Anyway, this came in quite useful on a 1,200 mile mid-winter trip last weekend with my elderly parents. Normally we take my wife's car for road trips now, but this was an exception.

    @EdA, thank you for this. We've used many nav systems over the years and consistently come back to TomTom as the most reliable and best interface, features, and ease of use.

    There is a new file with two additional chargers. Not sure how often I'll update the file and at what frequency but since I still have the initial energy
    burst I'll keep going hard :)

    Thanks for the file with GPSbabel, i converted it for Microsoft Street & Trips, which I have been using for many many years. I can now plan my route and find hotels and points of interests along the route.

    If someone needs the converted file for Street & Trips from 2007 on, just drop me a private mail and I will send it to you.

    thanks again.

    Is this service still useful? Dropbox doesn't seem to have statistics for the number of downloads for each file...

    In honor of the 300th charger in the USA, I have updated the file with 29 new superchargers (4 in Canada) for a total of 326.
    Up to Rolla, MO for those keeping score at home.
