EV route planning

When you're planning a journey in the EV, what do you find the best method for figuring out where to stop to charge? Does the in-car satnav route between chargers based on assumed kW consumption?

I'm looking at http://zap-map.com and wondering if I just find the nearest charger on the motorway to each 100 mile interval of my route?

There are a lot of apps that you can download to use. PlugShare or Open Charge Map would be good to use for planning routes that have charging stations along the way.

Do those actually tell you where to stop for a given state of charge though? Most of them do A to B route planning and show chargers, but I haven't seen one that says "you'll need to stop at this one as you'll have 10% remaining" like Tesla's in car nav does

Ohh okay, I'm not too sure about that to be honest, I'm new to the EV game but to my knowledge, I don't know of any apps that do that. Wouldn't how far you'll be able to get be dependent on how you're driving, the conditions, what you're using, etc. ? It'll be changing constantly ?

Yeah, I've seen that, but it's a very basic version of what Tesla do with their planning software. Someone's created a Tesla-specific version on the web: https://evtripplanner.com but the data is all very specific to Tesla models, although they're just starting to support Leafs too.

I suggested it to one of the mapping team at Google I know, who thought it was a great idea, so fingers crossed!

With what Google is planning do with their Automotive Division odds are they'll get something going and if they do, it should be better than most, as is typically the case when the Google of things come to market.

I'm thinking of writing an app which would plan your route and recommend where to stop to recharge based on your car's range, your comfort zone in terms of % left before recharging and locations of suitable charging stations.

Shouldn't be too hard.

I found this in another thread a while ago, I've been compiling a list of places I visit and with the severe lack of charging infrastructure in Australia trying to comfort myself into wanting the EV

Take a look at https://evmaps.co.uk - it seems to be the closest to what you're suggesting at the moment
