Electric Vehicle Charging Points

plordplord Posts: 6 [Apprentice Seeker]
My car ( Hyundai Kona Electric ) uses tom tom live services to find the details of the nearest electric vehicle charging points. However I've noticed a high amount of inaccurate locations and missing charging points in the UK, thus making the service not very useful.

The location and details of these are widely available from both the originators ( eg https://instavolt.co.uk/find-a-charge-point/ ) or from aggregated sites ( eg https://zap-map.com/live/ or https://map.openchargemap.io/#/search ).

Have tom tom got a plan to add all charging points to the live services ?

Alternatively, is there a way for me to bulk upload charger locations from open sources ?

Many thanks,

    Well, I've added a couple of local electric vehicle charging points to mapshare which have been accepted. However, when a try a live search from my car ( which uses htundai-kia-ams.services.tomtom.com ) they aren't showing up.

    Do I just need to wait longer or is there a different way to add all the missing charging stations ?

    I'm also seeing a mismatch of data that can be entered into mapshare vs available via the services - for example charger connector types, opening times, availability etc.

    I see a couple of instavolt chargers have started to appear in my car's live search. However the data doesn't match exactly what I entered in mapshare. So I remain confused on what the process is to update tom tom so that hyundai-kia-ams.services.tomtom.com gives more up-to-date info.
