EL SEGUNDO, California – February 8, 2021 – Today, PlugShare released a new version of its industry-leading Apple iPhone app for electric vehicle (EV) drivers with support for Apple CarPlay®, the smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while you drive.
The PlugShare release includes new features specifically designed for easy use when connected to CarPlay through an EV’s built-in display. To minimize the need for manual browsing, PlugShare will now not only filter out unwanted locations, but will also rank them so the first options seen are the best fit for a driver’s needs. In addition, trips that drivers plan on their iPhone, iPad, or on the web will now be viewable on their EV’s built-in display using CarPlay.
Drivers will also be able to view location bookmarks, get single tap directions, and even switch vehicle types – all within CarPlay.
“We’re driven by the needs and feedback of EV drivers, and CarPlay has been, without question, one of the most requested features from our community”, said Nick Wild, PlugShare’s co-founder and CEO. “We’ve been on mobile devices and the web for over 9 years, it feels great to be on the dashboard now.”
