Zap-Map, the UK’s leading electric vehicle (EV) mapping service, and GRIDSERVE, a pioneer in sustainable energy solutions, have announced that the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway is now part of Zap-Map’s live data network.
The recently completed integration between the two companies means that the live availability status of GRIDSERVE Electric Highway charging locations are now visible on Zap-Map.
This will make planning charge stops easier and deliver a network that people can rely on. This will ultimately help to reduce range or charging anxiety wherever drivers live in the UK.
Melanie Shufflebotham, Zap-Map co-founder and COO, said: “It is so important for EV drivers to be able to see live status data when planning their journeys.
“The GRIDSERVE Electric Highway chargers are situated at critical locations across the UK, and we are delighted to be working closely with GRIDSERVE to display live status on Zap-Map.
“This will be welcome news to EV drivers, as we know they love the existing live data on Zap-Map, giving them more confidence as they get out and about in their EVs.”
Toddington Harper, GRIDSERVE CEO, said: “Zap-Map recently released a new version of the app that provides key updates to the existing free features, especially enhancements to route planning and filtering.
“As part of this, Zap-Map also introduced Zap-Map Plus and Zap-Map Premium, which provide additional new features for drivers to help them plan quicker and drive smarter.
“Among other new features, users upgrading to Zap-Map Plus and Premium are able to distinguish which charge points are new (added in the last 30 days) on the map and as a list, for example, newly upgraded GRIDSERVE Electric Highway locations.”
