What is the EV Service?
The TomTom EV Service provides information about charging opportunities for Electric Vehicle (EV) drivers. This encompasses locations and detailed information about charging parks and the charging stations within each charging park, as well as realtime availability for the different charging points of each charging station.
The static data provides multiple layers of information, for example:
- The charging parks for a given country.
- Shared properties of the charging stations in a charging park like provider, operator, address, location, opening hours, etc.
- The charging stations that are located in a charging park.
- Relevant information about charging stations like the location and payment methods.
- The charging points that belong to a charging station.
- Relevant information about charging stations like the location, supported charging plug types, and the charging facility type.
The above parameters will be provided where available.
