Zap-Map Icons key
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 including charge point status: click on a charger marker on the map to see address, device, status, network, contact, pricing and access info. Live network data is indicated by “Available to use” or “Charging now” status in blue. Other crowd-sourced updates from Zap-Map community via Zap-Chat facility.
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. The charge point data is compiled from a variety of sources including dealer networks, charge point networks, the National Charge Point Registry (NCR), Open Charge Map and individuals.
Zap-Map integrates dynamic(live) data direct from participating charge point networks. This feature is being rolled out initially with the POLAR network in 2016, with more networks to follow in 2017.
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.
