What about listing ALL the charging points?

    It would be a great upgrade in my view, if , instead of ONLY superchargers , the navigation system listed all chargers, particularly Ecotricity at most motorway stops. My wife's bmw i3 has a complete list in its satnav including car park and ParknRide sites, with distances. this is an IT exercise so no hardware is involved.
    anybody agree this woul be a benefit?
    I say this because arriving at Bristol John Lewis SC last week in the small hours, the car park was locked, and I got home with just 9 miles left.

    Here in the Colonies we have a phone app that lists all public (and many private) charging facilities. It is called PlugShare. You can filter the results by type of charging station to suit your needs. The map on the 17" touchscreen via the car only lists Superchargers. PlugShare also can be dialed up on the touchscreen when you on on Wi-Fi or otherwise on the internet.

    I tend to use zap-map.com for this, pretty clear info and works in the car browser. I wonder why people like Google and Waze haven't already added this into their maps.

    According to Tesla website the supercharger should be available 24/7. I'm very concerned if you are correct.

    If that's true you need to let TM know so they can fix it. Did you call them at the time? It's possible it was an error on the part of the facilities staff; the policy of locking it might now have changed for example.

    EVTripPlanner.com consolidates multiple databases of conventional and superchargers and shows them along your planned route (see EV Trip Planner) with detailed information on each when you click on them (or add them as waypoints by clicking 'charger here' in detail popup). We will soon be introducing an in-car companion app that runs in the Tesla browser alongside your nav system and shows next-charger info (with rated miles to each) in real-time while you're driving. Give it a try...thousands of other Tesla drivers are!
