Find EV Charging Stations in Google Maps


EV Charging.

Add Your Plug Type

Before we start looking for charging stations, you should tell Google Maps the type of plug your eco-friendly vehicle uses. This will ensure you only find compatible chargers for your vehicle.

Open Google Maps on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Tap your profile icon in the search bar and select “Settings.”

Go to "Settings."

Scroll down and select “Electric Vehicle Settings.”

Tap "Electric Vehicle Settings."

Tap the plus icon to “Add Plugs” and choose the plug type for your vehicle.

Tap "Add Plugs" and choose a plug.

That’s all there is to it. Now Google Maps will know which type of charger you need.

Find EV Charging Stations

Open Google Maps on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Scroll to the far right of the categories listed underneath the search bar and tap “More.”

Select "More."

Scroll down to the “Services” section. This will look slightly different on Android and iPhone, but you’ll see “Electric Vehicle Charging.”

Select "Electric Vehicle Charging."

This will bring up a list of results in your area. You can sort by Relevance or Distance, Open Now, Top Rated, and choose plug type—which we already did above.

Result sorting options.

The results themselves include a lot of useful information as well. You can see the charging speeds and how many charging stations are there. Tap the directions icon to begin navigating to the charger.

Navigate to a charging station.
