Google Maps Ads the Ability to Search for EV Charging Stations By Plug Type

It just got a little easier to find an electric charging station thanks to an upgrade of Google Maps.  First spotted by Android Police, Google Maps not only displays the location of charging stations but now the type of charging connectors available. That will be welcome news to the electric car enthusiasts out there given the vehicle manufacturers use different charging connectors. Nissan vehicles use CHAdeMo, while BMW and Volks Wagen use CCS and Tesla has its own connector, noted Android Police. Finding a charging station in the U.S. can be difficult as it is, but its made even harder because of the lack of a universal electric charging pump. That makes the ability to search based on connector type an important enhancement to Google Maps.
