Google is a very versatile company that knows that the way to grow is being supported by its users, and that is why it is interested in their needs, in order to offer numerous solutions for day to day. This is achieved, among other things, through its apps, and Google Maps is no exception.
This map and geolocation application now has a new filter, one that will surely be very useful for those who have an electric car and always need to know where to find a compatible charging station with its connector.
The search giant finally paid attention to the demand of users who own an electric vehicle. There are different types of charging connectors used by various car manufacturers. For example, Nissan uses CHAdeMO, Tesla uses its connector, and BMW and VW use the type of CCS plug to charge their cars. However, users can choose between different plugs, including J1772, CCS (Combo 1), Type 2, CCS (Combo 2), CHAdeMO and Tesla.
From the beginning of the EV search function on Google, users were missing the ability to filter the results according to the type of connector. The recent update will surely be a sigh of relief for daily drivers. It will help you drive the card directly to the compatible charging station. Especially, travelers who use electronic vehicles will surely benefit from such service.
To use the new feature, users can go to Google Maps> Settings> Electric vehicle settings> Your plugs> Choose and save. In this way, they can search without problems the EV stations compatible with Google Maps. It is a crucial feature for those electric car owners and will put an end to their reliability of using third-party applications such as PlugShare.
