Happy to see has come a long way since early versions
It’s great to see the app has been improved and perfected over the years. It has been very reliable and the functionality is great including access to billing and account information.
The only suggestions are to change is having the map automatically adjust zoom to show the nearest station. This means if you open the map it should show the nearest charging station even if the nearest one is a bit far.
The other suggestion is showing voltage and amps in real time on the app. This is a big sore point with the whole fast charging infrastructure. Usage is charged by the minute but yet I have no indication as to how much I’m getting for my money. I understand it’s likely the vehicle electronics that choose to limit the output to the battery depending on temperature and other factors but at least let me be informed so I can determine if I will be getting my money’s worth or not.
Very easy to start session
I use this app a lot when taking long trips in my Bolt EV. The app immediately recognizes the charger when I stand in front of it and I need only a couple of simple screens to make my selection and “Swipe to Charge”. Very improved app in the last several years. The main things I need are accessed right from the opening screen and the other useful features in a menu tray accessed via one tap. The notification system is easy and very useful. I wish it had the ability to display car state of charge on my phone while charging and display recent charges by others at that station (for better trip planning).
App went from not useful to now only needing a few tweaks. I have not recently experienced inability to initiate charge at any station in last 4 months, an earlier problem.
- it would be nice to go directly to charger instead of drilling down through menus. Slow cellular slows down the process. You can favorite a station, but not a charger
- it would be nice to get charging level from app. App is already talking to station for time and connection. Why not grab the %? I can get it from car’s app, but have to use car’s 3G cellular and it has its own drill down and uptime issues.
- it would be nice if app showed the running total of the fee. I now guess based on previous usage and do see the text message after charging complete. Also the text message could include balance to date. You have the data.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
