New app provides details of publicly available EV charging points across the UK
The Zap-Map App is designed to improve the electric driving experience for all by enabling EV owners to safely search the charging network on the move.
Linked to Zap-Map.com, the UK’s leading EV charging website, the Zap-Map App allows users to view charging points in map or list mode. For each point, relevant charge point information is provided including: geo-location, charging power and connector type.
Charge points can be searched by rated power (kW), connector type and by EV model. Users are also able to “favourite”, share and provide feedback on each charging point; relevant updates are then added to the database for the benefit of all users.
A new app has been launched that enables EV drivers to locate publically available EV charging points across the UK.
Melanie Shufflebotham, head of sales and marketing at Zap-Map.com, said: ‘With over 25,000 electric cars already registered in the UK, and strong growth forecast for 2015, there is a high level of demand for tools to provide clear charging point information to aid journey planning.
‘We are delighted to rollout the Zap-Map App, with its unique search functionality and market-leading usability. Today’s launch marks the first of a series of innovative EV Apps which we have designed to support the EV community.’
The iOS version of the Zap-Map App is available to download from the official Apple App Store from 25th February 2015 with an Android version to be released on Google Play in mid-March.
