With EV mode turned on, simply tap on the search bar at the top of the map to enter the Search screen, and then tap on the green charging station icon underneath the search bar. This will show the 30 nearest charging stations to the location which was centered on the map – usually your current location. You can move the map around and tap “Search this area” to get results from elsewhere.
The charging station icon to the left of the station name can have different colors based on its status or compatibility with your car:
- Green – the station’s chargers available and it has connectors compatible with your car.
- Orange – the station has connectors compatible with your car, but the chargers are currently occupied.
- Grey – charging is not available, either the station is closed, out of order, or does not have the right connector types. Another option is that status information about the station is currently not available. The charging points in this case will have their status shown as “Unknown” even if they are the correct type for your car – you may be able to charge there but we do not have the information needed to confirm this.
After you tap on any specific charging station, you can expand the bottom information bar by tapping on it or swiping it upward, to view detailed information about that station: its chargers and connectors, price, availability, authentification methods, opening hours and various contact information. To be able to use Sygic for starting the charge, the station details must have “App authorization” listed as an option in the Authentification section.
