Find electric vehicle charging stations on Google Maps

Postby CapitolChevrolet » Wed Mar 30, 2011 5:27 pm

Google's blog just announced that they've added a 'Find electric vehicle charging stations on Google Maps'
Just search on Google Maps for “ev charging station” plus the appropriate area, for example, “ev charging station near mountain view ca.”

Thought this was something worth sharing! You can read the whole blog article here.

Thanks. I saw a post on Cnet about it and so tried it out before I drove to UC Berkeley. What I discovered:
1) The parking lot listed has at least 3 different names. The name that came up on Google Maps is not in any way the most common one for it. :o
2) The EV chargers (listed by UC in the literature i FINALLY DID FIND through the University Website) are not the new SAE J1772 plugs. :|
Volt #898, aka "Heidi" (my greyhound) :cool:
