German EV charging management platform Plugsurfing has introduced a route planner tool for finding chargers along any desired route across 27 European countries. The company’s network currently encompasses 600,000 charge points.
The route planner is powered by Amsterdam-headquartered Chargetrip’s range prediction and EV routing platform. It uses an algorithm that includes up to 15 parameters that can affect range, such as road conditions, driving style, weather, traffic and elevation.
The route planner tool displays only high-speed chargers and omits those that are out of order. It also allows the route to be exported to Google or Apple maps for compatibility with most car navigation systems.
