Mobile Apps Make Finding Charging Stations Easier

by | Dec 16, 2022 | 0 comments |

When EV drivers travel for long distances, it’s an extra task to find places to stop and charge. Now, Google added a new feature to Google Maps to help drivers find EV charging stations to stop at along their route. Anyone with an Android or iPhone can search EV charging stations in Google Maps and can filter the options to show specific charging capabilities like certain plugs or fast charging.

Long distance driving for electric vehicles is making some advancements. In the previous stages of electric vehicles, drivers struggled to travel long-distance for numerous reasons. First, some vehicle models had a short EV range. EVs did not have the amount of mileage on one charge that gas powered cars did. Also, there weren’t always electric charging stations available in certain areas or on highways. Recent developments have been made to solve both of those issues. The federal government has started multiple programs and allotted funds to solve long-distance travel issues. The National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Program was started to help EV charging availability and one of its initiatives is to have EV charging stations along the interstate highways in all 50 states. There have also been budgets dedicated to helping the automotive industry produce better EV batteries with a higher EV range.

The Noodoe EV app can direct drivers to the nearest Noodoe EV charging station and allows the ability for easy payments. It also can keep track of your charging history and progress. When choosing a charging station through the Noodoe app, it shows how many charging stations are currently in use, what the charging speed of their stations is, and how long they are open.
