Charging stations on Navigation

Post by maccyj » Mon May 31, 2021 7:36 pm

I have noticed that the info on the Nav regarding charging stations is very lacking. None at all shown in the Weymouth Dorchester area but I know there are several?

The same, the database is lacking about 90% of the chargers here.

Download one or all of the mapping apps - I use PlugShare, Chargemap, Electromaps, Open Charge, and ABRP.

They report with the 2.1 update that the map database is more current, it certainly increments the database number, however for me the database is at least 10 years out of date.

I don’t know if it’s possible to get them to update it, I just think their database is the cheapest they can licence and isn’t kept accurate.

The sat nav is crap. Even though supposedly it has an internet connection, it doesn't even know there's a Waitrose in the town where I live and it's been there for four year.

Agree, it’s a mystery to me how out of date it is. As I said, local BP petrol station that has been here 10 years isn’t listed!
