Hi
Does anyone use any of these systems in their car?
Do any of them work well when you ask where the nearest rapid charger is?

I have only recently bought my 2016 Tekna Env and I am still adjusting to the range, when I went to Leeds, I had a friend with me, who was able to check for the next rapid charger, when it became apparent that we might not quite make the selected charging point - pre journey (damn those windows that needed demisting). As I usually travel on my own i wondered if there is an alternative that i can shout at? I prefer not to leave my phone screen on all the time.

Has anyone connected one of these with the screen in the van, is that possible?
TIA

Before getting an Amazon "Echo Auto", watch this:-


If you have an android phone with the zap-map app on it, you can ask Google to ask zap-map for the nearest charger.

Any ideas?
It’s not quite what you are asking, but OVMS and a better route planner have an upcoming feature where their plugin feeds data from the env200 to the app and so gives live updates to range and would flag earlier if you weren’t going to make it and need to find a closer charger
