TomTom launches live charging point data service

TomTom has launched a new service displaying real-time charging point availability for electric vehicle drivers within its navigation devices.

TomTom EV Service

TomTom EV Service offers live data on charging point availability.

Aimed at reducing range anxiety, the system uses data from network operators, updating constantly during a journey to help drivers find unoccupied charging points. Information on opening hours, payment methods, and connection types will also be available.

TomTom EV Service rolls out in Europe first, with expansion planned for North America next year. Once complete, this will map more than 35,000 charging points across the two continents, according to the company.

Antoine Saucier, managing director, TomTom Automotive, commented: “One of the major barriers to driver adoption of electric vehicles is range anxiety, so with the launch of the TomTom EV Service, we’re taking driver peace of mind to the next level, and encouraging sustainable mobility.”
