The latest version of the Tesla mobile app (version 4.8.0 on iOS) expands the list of nearby Superchargers you see while using the app’s location feature from the four closest stations to 10 (via Reddit).
In addition, each Supercharger listing now has its max power output specified right underneath, to go with existing stall availability at the location.
Selecting a Supercharger will now also show you what amenities — such as Wi-Fi, restrooms, restaurants, and more — are available in its vicinity. From there, users can choose to send the location of the Supercharger directly to their Tesla.
With Tesla’s global Supercharger network growing as fast as it is, increasing nearby Supercharger visibility in the mobile app is definitely a step in the right direction.
According to comments from several Reddit users on the original thread, the new features appear to be limited to the U.S. at this time. Users from Canada, the U.K., New Zealand, and Germany all confirmed that the latest version of the Tesla app still displays only four nearby Superchargers for them, and doesn’t list maximum power output either.
Another heavily requested feature for Tesla’s mobile app is to include pricing for nearby Supercharger stations.
According to Tesla’s Q1 earnings, the company now has 3,724 Supercharger stations, up 38% year-over-year, and 33,657 Supercharger connectors, up 37% year-over-year.
The previous update for Tesla’s mobile app (version 4.7.0 on iOS) rolled out last month and added a new auto seat heating feature, along with several improvements for Tesla Powerwall owners.
