Google Maps Present Special Settings for Electric Car Drivers

Timerilis.com – Google Maps brings special settings for electric car drivers which are expected to provide the most relevant information to users of its services. Changes to the special settings can be seen through the Google Maps service connected to Android Auto. One of them is there will no longer be information about the nearest gas station for electric car users, as reported by the Phone Arena page, Saturday (19/8), local time. The change was confirmed by Google spokesperson Pearl Xu, who said they continue to adapt their services to the needs of users through optimization.

“This is done to help users get the most relevant information when navigating. Last year, we also added a feature so that electric vehicle drivers can see charging stations instead of gas stations on Google Maps for Android Auto,” said Pearl Xu.

This time, to be more efficient in the special settings for electric car drivers, Google Maps decided to no longer show gas stations and only show charging stations. Some other special settings that Google Maps brings to the Android Auto update include information on the availability of charging stations in real-time to the types of plugs. For real-time charging station availability information, Google will provide information on the availability of usable and nearby charging stations so that users don’t have to wait in line. There is also a

“Filter” feature for charging speed, when used, users can search for charging station capacities that have “very fast” and “fast” speeds. Google Maps also provides information on stations classified as “very fast”, which have a charging capacity of 150 kilowatts or higher.

So that users in a hurry can charge enough batteries with a large power in less than 40 minutes. In addition, there are charging stations classified as “fast”, which have a charging capacity of 50 kilowatts or higher. The filter feature can be used to search for charging stations with certain types of electric car plugs, allowing people to look for stations that are compatible with their electric car plugs, making charging easier.

Google Maps provides recommendations when users choose to add a charging stop to a trip. The app will suggest the best stop that has been calculated with the current traffic situation, electric car power level, and estimated energy consumption. source: Antara
