Supercharger Status Indication

161

Now Implemented!

Description

When displaying the Superchargers, change the icons and notes to indicate how many total stations are at the location and how many are available (not in use).

Also would be nice to show actual superchargers with a different icon or color than non-superchargers (the in-car map with v4.5 software) that shows all charging locations at the same.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

None.

Status

The 7.1 software release includes Supercharger status on the icon. A tap shows additional details about closures and other issues.  Later software included more details and also includes destination chargers.

Most important piece of info is status of the SC. Is it on or offline? If it's occupied then one can wait a few moments for a free one. Although here out East (Western NY area) SC crowding is NEVER an issue.

Also would be great if TMC servers could keep track of a live queue per SC location based on time of arrival with prioritization of road trippers over locals.

"Taylor Swift",, I believe I read that there would be more 'Local', info concerning the Super Chargers ??

Besides information of in use and free chargers, it would be nice to have more informations about the station than we have now. When you push it on the screen it comes up with the name, adress and a possibility to navigate. Here could be informations about the number of stalls and names of the rest room facelitees - like McDonalds, 7 eleven, hotel etc.

Glad to see the new Superchargers are red, and other visited chargers are simply grey.

It would also be cool to see how many other (anonymous, of course) Model S owners are on their way to the Supercharger, and their estimate time of arrivals, and how long owners are expected to be charging a your intended Supercharger destination. But I admit - maybe I'm overthinking this need...  I've only had to wait for a SC in Folsom and Gilroy, in the early days...
