Trying to get this to work with android auto I accidentally ended up paying for 2 subscriptions. A plus and a premium. The app only sees the plus subscription so I still can't use it with android auto. When I reported the problem to zap map they weren't interested and just told me to contact Google play. Google play far from easy to contact. It turns out Zap-Map can fix this problem and they have. One of their developers was able to force the premium subscription to take effect. Thank you.

Hello Nadeem, I can confirm you're in contact with our Support team who have given you advice on what to do. Unfortunately this continues to be a Google Play Store issue & not one we can resolve as we said in on our email dated 14th of March. We hope you get this resolved with Google. Kind regards, Isabel (CO Manager, Zap-Map)

Registration bugged out several times at different points. I don't understand the design choice of not showing charge points until you're zoomed in enough on the map, as opposed to grouping (like plugsurfing) or just straight up always displaying (like chargefinder). For long trips, it makes it hard to estimate your options.

Hello Ida, sorry to hear that you had difficulties registering & thank you for your feedback. We are constantly working on ways to improve the app features and interface to make finding charge points as easy as possible for EV drivers, so hopefully this experience will continue to improve in upcoming versions. KRs, Isabel (CO Manager, Zapmap)

Clear to read, easy to use, free, and reliable enough that it has not failed me a single time. An absolute must-have app for EV owners in the UK. See public Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points on a map of the UK. The availability of each point is updated from both network status changes, and by community-submitted reports. This creates an extremely reliable way to find a nearby charging point; you can even see if a point has been ICE'd (occupied by an Internal Combustion Engine vehicle.

What's new

We’ve fixed an issue which was preventing users from using their 3rd party log-ins (Apple/Google/Facebook) to access external services from the in-app view. We’ve also ensured that the filter settings for Allstar users are correct when logging in and fixed a number of minor UI issues across the app.
