The GMEV regional public EV charging network is changing to a new network – Be.EV. Further information can be found on Zap-Map’s Be.EV network guide.

Finding GMEV points on Zap-Map

gmev filters

All GMEV points can be found on Zap-Map by using the network filter. This can be used on the desktop and mobile apps, and displays only those points available to use by GMEV members and customers of associated networks.

Charging types and speeds can be filtered too, showing only those points that are compatible with users’ cars.
