Google Maps now offers detailed info on EV chargers

Businesses that have charging stations on their premises will have a section in their listing detailing the chargers, and visitors will be able to rate and review the charging stations like they can any other location on Maps.

Electrified cars usually let you search for charging points through the infotainment system, but that same information was a bit tougher to find from third-party solutions like Google Maps.

New features are consistently added to the app thanks to updates from Google. Simply search for keywords like "ev charging" or "EV charging stations" from the Google Maps app and the nearest supported stations will pop up. Besides the address, each listing also includes the types and numbers of of ports available at each station, and their charging speeds. So of course Google is going to try and help with finding charging stations as people drive from one location to another.

Worldwide on Maps, you can find all Tesla and Chargepoint stations via the application.

Google outlined the specific charging stations that can be located in different territories. The US's SemaConnect, EVgo, and Blink are supported, while the UK's Chargemaster and Pod Point will be available for overseas users.

Meanwhile, those in the United Kingdom can also track the whereabouts of Chargemaster and Pod Point stations.

The feature is rolling out today on both Android and iOS.

Google on Tuesday unveiled a brand new Google Maps feature that should improve your overall navigation experience, but only if you operate the kind of vehicle.

However, the Mountain View firm will be adding the fresh functionality to computers in the "coming weeks".
