The Geofencing, Location History and Notification APIs allow you to build your entire platform with one provider that covers all of your mapping needs, including location-based data hosted in the cloud. Learn about the TomTom tracking family of APIs and how to build apps that manage your fleets, locate vehicles, trace deliveries, and track assets on a map in real time.

Part 1 of our EV Routing Devisode was all about Reachable range. Jose and Olivia calculated a route between two points and searched for EV charging stations. In part 2, they focus on creating a long-distance EV route: car charging features, battery consumption, and how fast a certain car can charge.
