Paid version not worth it

I used this app as a way of checking chargers near my destination before setting off. But when I had to do a cross-country trip I decided to invest in the pro paid version so I could use the CarPlay feature, I was soon disappointed to find out it has no navigation or significantly useful features, in fact, I’d say is a safety hazard as the car play integration constantly fails.

I would have loved it if it offered live navigation paired with consumption estimates and live stations status. Instead it was no more useful than an old-style paper map.

I hope it’s improves as non-Tesla owners are still stuck with a disjointed network and at least 3 different apps being used in order to plan our long journeys.

Good app but CarPlay integration needs work

I’ve used Zap-Map for a long while, and in general it is my go to app for EV planning. However with a long trip over the holiday period - 950 miles over two days in a relatively short range Ioniq - I took the free trial of the Apple CarPlay integration to use over the trip because currently it was the only option with live statuses for the motorway chargers. Coming towards my first stop I opened the app and was greeted with a loading screen, which then failed to open. After restarting the app when I was stopped at the charger (I took a chance on it being available) it then came up with nearby chargers. Moving on to the next stop, due to traffic I was diverted off the motorway, but although it loaded, it didn’t list any nearby chargers. Once again stopped I was able to restart the app on the phone and it worked.

Unfortunately while the app is still useful stand alone, the CarPlay integration still has issues, and until those are solved is not worth the £50 a year being asked for to get the functionality.

What is this App for?

I appreciate that it seems a bit of a stupid title, as it is reasonably apparent. However, I’ve had this app on my phone for some time now and seldom use it.

I installed it on the recommendation of a friend just before taking delivery of my EV. However, I find this app no more beneficial than google maps or my car's navigation system. I upgraded to the pro version to use with Apple CarPlay, but more often than not, it is frozen, which requires the use of the phone to get it working again. That’s not an option when driving. I’ve cancelled my subscription and am about to delete the app, as it serves no purpose, but I thought I’d drop a quick review first.

It does work fine, but it’s expensive, and it’s clunky. If I’m honest, once you get used to your car's navigation systems and the service provided by the charge station providers' apps, this ZapMap App becomes unused and redundant. It’s been outdated.
