Electric car drivers won't have to worry for long about where to find their next charge away from home because electric car charging company Coulomb Technologies and navigation software company TomTom are partnering to provide charging station locator, reservation and information services on the go.
In the first of what will likely be many partnerships of its kind, this teaming up of technology will allow drivers to not only map the quickest route to the nearest charging station, but compare the distance to the charger to the range left in the battery and reserve the station in advance. The driver can check the stats of the charging station, like connector type, availability and pricing too.
In addition to TomTom GPS devices, Coulomb also offers similar services via apps for iPhone, Android and Blackberry mobile phones that use the phones' GPS locators.via BusinessWire
