The Zap-Map app helps EV drivers to locate available charge points, plan longer electric journeys, share updates with the EV community and pay for charging on participating networks.
With over 12,000 locations, 19,000 devices and 33,000 connectors mapped, Zap-Map shows charge points from both the major networks and smaller providers across the UK. Free to download, the Zap-Map app is an essential app for EV drivers in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
UK-wide charging point map
The Zap-Map electric car charging app offers a UK-wide charging point map currently showing over 12,000 charging locations and more than 30,000 connectors. Clicking on menu (fig 1.1), gives users the option to search UK charge points, filter chargers, or plan a route. In addition to the map view, there is also a list view, accessible from the navigation bar.
Use filters to identify suitable charge points
Zap-Map app users can filter map results by any combination of charge point type (slow, fast, and rapid), connectors, location type, payment and access type. To do this users simply click on the filter icon on map or list. Default is all chargers; select options to filter then click ‘Apply’ button.
Plan a route using the smart Route Planner
Use the route planner to plan suitable charge stops on your electric journey. Default to the standard settings for a ‘quick plan’ or adjust driver and charger search options to create a customised route plan.
View charge point info including dynamic network status data on Zap-Map
Dynamic network data is available for most of the major networks. A blue outline on the marker indicates that the charge device is in use whilst a red outline shows that all devices at a charging location are out of service.
Update charge points using Zap-Chat community feature
Users can log a successful charge, update charge point status, indicate the location is ICEd, and add photos & last mile info for other EV drivers. This complements, where available, the dynamic live data. Users must be registered to post, but Zap-Chats can be seen by all. To add a Zap-Chat users simply click the bubble on the charge point info box, on the bottom nav or main menu. Users can also add general chat or questions to the cafe area.
Add new public charge point, share your home point on Zap-Home network or suggest a charge point location
Users can add any public charge points not currently on Zap-Map via the easy to use wizard. Users can also add their home charger to the Zap-Home network, providing other EV drivers with more charging options and providing a simple way to earn money with the option of using PayPal.Me, facilitating peer-peer digital payment.
