Telecom Lead America: AAA has added EV charging station
locations to its digital mapping tools that allow EV drivers to identify
charging station locations in its digital mapping tools.
The company now offers a choice of the TripTik Travel
Planner on AAA.com or the free AAA TripTik Mobile app for smartphones that
helps finding places to recharge electric.
“From the original strip maps used for road travel to
the comprehensive array of print, online and mobile travel planning tools
offered today, AAA has been providing motorists with relevant and accurate
travel information for more than a century. The addition of electric vehicle
charging station locations to our digital mapping tools reinforces AAA’s commitment
to providing members the information they need in formats they want,”
said Bill Wood, managing director, AAA Travel Publishing.
Using these tools, EV motorists can locate more than 2,000
publicly available electric vehicle charging stations across the United
States, including independent stations and those that are part of a network.
In order to find charging stations near an address or along
a route, users can select a green plug icon to display locations on a map in
TripTik Travel Planner or the TripTik Mobile app.
Clicking on an icon opens a listing that provides the
station address, hours, charger levels and, where available, a telephone
Furthermore, app users can dial the listed numbers in a
single touch to check station availability status.
AAA’s online and mobile mapping tools also display gas
station locations, along with frequently updated gas prices, and points of
interest, such as AAA Diamond Rated hotels and restaurants.
Additional GPS-based apps include AAA Discounts, which
displays nearby member discount locations and AAA Roadside.
