The vast charging network ChargePoint has integrated its service with Apple CarPlay, bringing EV charging data inside the vehicle and allowing drivers to access charging information directly from their infotainment system. Drivers can find nearby chargers, check station status, start a session, navigate to a station and more, without the need to use a smartphone while driving.
There are also several new features available to Apple users, including Dark Mode, Apple Watch compatibility, and a new ChargePoint widget with which drivers can find nearby stations or check real-time charging status.
“The shift to electric mobility is transforming the driver experience, and ChargePoint’s integration with CarPlay is another pivotal step in the evolution already underway, driven by software and increased connectivity,” said Senior VP Bill Loewenthal. “Drivers now have access to ChargePoint app information right on the vehicle display. The seamless connection between the app and vehicle represents the next step in how drivers and passengers will experience mobility in the future.”
