By / 3 months ago / Latest News / No Comments

ChargePoint has added support for Android Auto, enabling drivers to access a weath of charging functionality inside their electric vehicle.

Android users now have access to ChargePoint app information right on the vehicle display

The ability to connect their phone directly to their Android-compatible EV means that Android users now have access to ChargePoint app information right on the vehicle display.

This means that drivers can find nearby EV charging stations and check their details and status. They can also filter nearby stations by charging speed, availability and cost, as well as begin a charging session.

And if a charging station is busy, the driver can use the in-vehicle app to click Notify Me to find out when it’s available again.

“At ChargePoint, we know that the shift to electric mobility relies on driver experience, and ChargePoint’s Android Auto app is another pivotal step in the evolution already underway, driven by software and increased connectivity,” said Bill Loewenthal, senior vice president, product, ChargePoint.

“By integrating essential charging data directly into the vehicle’s infotainment system, drivers are even more empowered and informed. The enhanced connection between app and vehicle represents the next step in how drivers and passengers are fuelling mobility and how ChargePoint is delivering technology solutions to fit the needs of EV drivers now and in the future.”
