  1. Hi Nick – how about Zap-Map: its dedicated to the UK market and available on both iOS and Android – over 150K+ downloads to date, 50K+ registered use, dynamic data from networks, route planner and most used EV app in the UK! Would be good to know the reason you haven’t put it on your list. Cheers Melanie

    1. Hi Mel, I did include it year before but i don’t see what it offers which plugshare or wattapp doesn’t offer why would you say its better than any of these?

  2. Hi Nick Thanks for your reply. Plugshare, whilst a good WW app, is not optimised for the UK market – many fewer filters e.g not able to select by UK network (only polar), no updates to pricing, no live data in UK except for Polar network (ZM has over 32 networks listed with live updates updated every 5 mins), limited route planning functionality especially on Android ++
    Wattsup – no android or website version, only shows rapid chargers (c.2000 rapid devices vs. c.15000 all devices), limited community updates, filters ++. Zap-Map is the go to map in the UK, with most UK downloads, usage and referenced by most EV related businesses! Thanks Melanie

    1. Hi Melaine am assuming by your response you work for ZapMap? If you’d like to email me via the contact form maybe you can show and explain the benefits and make it into the 2020 video and pip someone off the spot.
