Google Maps EV charging stations feature.

Google has just released a new feature to its popular Maps app for iOS and Android. Electric vehicle owners are able to search and get directions to the nearest charging stations. This is especially useful for planning a longer trip. Google Maps gives you now the option to efficiently plan your stops along the way and make sure that you can recharge, while you eat or sleep.

The EV Stations come with details about the type of ports available, how many of them you can find in a location as well as charging speeds. What’s not available yet is real-time info about how many ports are occupied and how many are free at a given station. However, the EV Stations are also accompanied by the usual information provided by Google, like user ratings, reviews, photos and questions.
