Gave us flexibility and peace of mind planning routes across the country

Last month’s round trip between east coast and Kansas was our first in a new Model Y. In some areas like S Missouri good charging stations are scarce or nonexistent. Nobody wants to end up running out of juice and learn there’s no charging in range ahead-and backtracking is required. We carried cables and converters for all charger types, but never had to use anything but superchargers and lower power (and free) Tesla connections at several motels. Being able to map out entire 1500 mile northern and southern routes, planning for adequate charging and our overnight stops was pretty easy and confidence building. It took only an hour or so the evening before each of our 1500 mile legs. Then we were free to enjoy the drive and scenery with no anxiety. PlugShare is a very nice complement to Tesla’s on board navigation to one’s next charge station.

No user editing ability

Apparently, the ability to edit a charging station’s information has been removed from recent app versions. One of PlugShare’s great strengths WAS its crowd-sourced information by actual charger station users/customers. I tried to update a local station that recently added a Tesla plug, but I cannot find a way to edit. And the app’s Help feature provides inaccurate editing instructions that are apparently no longer available.

Update: The developer has informed me that some station owners request that the users be barred from editing their listings. Good to know. I have three suggestions. First, I’d suggest that PlugShare develop a process to enable and encourage these station owners to keep their listings up to date (e.g. “New Tesla connector available at this station.”). If users can’t edit station info, the owners should make darn sure to update their listings to reflect changes in status and features. Second, the app’s Help function should explain that some stations may not be editable by users. (Currently, the Help function doesn’t mention this, and that’s unnecessarily confusing. Third, station listings should clearly indicate whether stations may or may not be edited by users right on the listing (perhaps in place of the edit button?). My rating stands at 3 Stars. PlugShare remains an essential EV app, but its usefulness has declined as a result of these changes.

Developer Response ,

Please note some locations do not have the ability to be edited as these may be locations where the CPO directly feed us information about the station. Due to this, they have requested that no information be tampered with, which we have agreed to hold, thus the location being "locked" from editing. This usually occurs from major charge point operators. However, there may be times where the information is not up to date and a user wants to add this, but will still be locked as we will receive the data from them. We do thank you for your interest in wanting to keep PlugShare locations up to date and still have many where users can do this, but for some, this will not be possible. We thank you for your understanding and hope you continue enjoy using PlugShare!

Beats Google Maps easily

This is the one app that consistently tells me about charger locations and provides details to find them from any/all brands and providers. Community members can add comments if a charger is out of service or full, which is really helpful on road-trips. I just use the filter (funnel icon) to select charges suitable for my car. Google maps is improving, but experience has repeatedly shown me that Google is not always up to date. Even when Google gets it right, it provides little or no info on exact plug location, and doesn’t detail cost, hours of public access, etc. Plug Share users are the best!
