Map of charging points in the UK

Zap-Map is a UK-wide map of charging points and aims to help EV drivers locate charging points and plan their electric journeys. The key features are as follows:

Search for charge points: enter a postcode or charge point name to go to a location; search on the map; drop the orange dot in a location and select “nearest chargers”

View charge point info: click on a charger marker on the map to see address, device, status, network, contact, pricing and access info.

Update status or add comment: click on “thumbs up” to indicate successful charge at this point; click on “update” button to change status of device or connector; click Zap-Chat bubble to add generic comments. Registration required.

See list of chargers near you: select “nearest chargers” on menu to see list of charging points near your location; alternatively click on the map, drop the orange dot and select “nearest chargers”

Plan your journey: select “route planner” on menu, add in destination by clicking map or adding points; find a suitable charging point en-route by using filters and click on directions arrow on charge point to add to route. Registration required.

Filter charge points: Use the filters to isolate the type of charging points you require by any combination of EV model, connector, speed, network, payment method or access.

Zap-Map is dedicated to keeping Zap-Map as up to date as possible. Data is updated from various sources including the National Charge Point Registry (NCR), Open Charge Map, Dealer networks and individuals. The aim is to have the charge point status information updated dynamically directly from the charge point operators. This information is not yet available, so Zap-Map relies on a combination of manual desk research and updates via Zap-Chat from the Zap-Map community.

For missing points, use the Add New Charge Point page, where there is a form with all the information fields required to add a new point to Zap-Map. Once this is completed the information will be reviewed and verified before the point will show on the map.

To locate charging points on the move, it is recommended that you download the iOS or Android app, which come in smartphone and tablet versions.

    I have just got my EV and was planning a route. However I had to keep closing down the map and reopen it as the charge point info dropdown box would simply only show an arrows and a thick black horizontal line after previously opening a couples of them successfully. Is that a settings problem, an internet speed problem or a software problem?

    Hi Larry

    You can use Zap-Map’s route planner on the desktop – you can add a route A to B via C etc. then filter out the charging points based on speed required, network, distance from route. You can access this via the menu under “Route finder”. Similar functionality coming soon on the iOS/Android app. Thanks Melanie

    When inspecting a location with more than one device, the comments seem to apply to the location. Therefore a reported issue that says ‘Conn 1′ is ambiguous because I don’t know whether that’s connector 1 on device 1 or connector 1 on device 2. Is there also some kind of online help with using the tool? I’m still new to this, and it’s a bit confusing.

      Hi Macronencer

      All the connector level comments on Zap-Chat comments on desktop, android and iOS app should have device number just above it. Which charge point location are you having difficulties with?

      Good idea to have some online help – we will look to adding this to the website / app.

      Thanks Melanie

        Thanks Melanie, sorry I didn’t reply earlier. I can’t remember which one it was now but I’ll post again if I have the same issue.

        Meanwhile, I’m finding the map itself (on the desktop web site) a bit hard to scroll/zoom. I’m using Opera browser on OS X with an Apple trackpad. When I scroll the page up and down, the map starts to zoom immediately when the scroll hits the limit, which is awfully hard to control. Can anything be done about this? I’d be happy with being able to turn off the scroll/zoom completely and having to click on + and -, personally.
