Google Maps is making it easier to find EV chargers

Tech giant Google is serving the growing number of electric vehicle (EV) owners globally by improving its Maps service to make traveling easier.

In the coming weeks, Google Maps will provide even more detailed information about the location of electric vehicle chargers, especially those in multi-storey car parks, by showing the location of the chargers.

This information is collated from user reviews with the help of AI, and may include descriptions of how to access chargers if they are in a location that is not immediately obvious, as well as times Expected charging based on previous experiences of other electric vehicle owners. .

While the feature will be available to both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto users who rely on Google Maps for navigation, it will also be rolled out to vehicles with Google integration.

Currently, the only electric cars sold in Australia have built-in Google integration included Renault Megane E-Tech electricthe North Star 2and Volvo C40 And Top up XC40.

These cars will also be the first to benefit from a Google Maps update that shows nearby chargers on the in-car app, including the speed of the charger and the number of available plugs.

Google is also enhancing Maps’ road travel capabilities, with the app soon having the ability to recommend the best charging locations on multi-stop trips based on the electric vehicle’s charge level. This feature will be specific to electric vehicles with Google integration as it relies heavily on the car’s battery data.

This early yearGoogle announced Maps will show an estimate of how much battery will be left at the end of a trip on certain electric vehicles and the estimated charging time expected when topping up.
