New Google Maps Search Filter EV-Charger Search Results by Compatibility

Google Maps is making it easier to find electric vehicle chargers that will be compatible with your car. Not only does the app show which plugs you’ll find at a station, but you can also specify which plugs will work on your car to filter search results.

If you search for EV charging in Google Maps on your phone, the app may ask you to configure your preferred charging connectors in the settings. It lists all the popular plug types, allowing you to add them to a new “Electric vehicle settings” menu. From that point on, searching for electric vehicle charging locations will show those you’ve chosen as compatible. There’s a drop-down menu where you can also switch to viewing all EV chargers.
