Important note
This EV Search API is unavailable on a Freemium or Pay As You Grow (PAYG) basis.
Click the Request Access button above to contact our Sales team.

Purpose

The EV Search Nearby endpoint provides information about the nearest charging stations based on a given coordinate system and radius. If provided (using optional request parameters), the response can be filtered by connector type, availability status, etc.

Request data

HTTPS method: GET

For ease of viewing and identification:

  • Constants and parameters enclosed in curly brackets { } must be replaced with their values.
  • Please see the following Request parameters section with the required and optional parameters tables for their values. The generic request format is as follows.

Request headers

The following table describes HTTP request headers.

Optional headers

Description

Tracking-ID

Specifies an identifier for the request.

  • It can be used to trace a call.
  • The value must match the regular expression '^[a-zA-Z0-9-]{1,100}$'.

  • An example of the format that matches this regular expression is UUID (e.g., 9ac68072-c7a4-11e8-a8d5-f2801f1b9fd1 ). For details check RFC 4122.

  • If specified, it is replicated in the Tracking-ID response header.

  • It is only meant to be used for support and does not involve tracking of you or your users in any form.


Value: An identifier for the request.

Accept

Specifies the response format of the API request, one of the following values:

  • application/json Default if the header is not provided.
  • application/xml

Accept-Language

Should be one of the TomTom supported IETF language tags, case insensitive. When data in the specified language is not available for a specific field or the language is not specified, the default language is used (English).

JMESPath

This header can be used to execute a JMESPath query on the API response. For more information refer to JMESPath examples.
Default value: If no header is provided, all response fields are included.
Note: The header value has to be URL encoded.
Example: results[*].{id:id,position:position} will only return the id and position fields of the results.

Response data

Response body

If the Accept header value is set to application/json, the response will be a JSON object with the following structure:
