Add Electric Charging station location info.

As as EV driver, it would be nice if electric charging station locations was built into the app so I don't have to go to yet another app just for this info. The data is widely available from here

http://www.afdc.energy.gov/fuels/electricity_locations.html

and here

http://www.plugshare.com/

and here

http://www.chargepoint.com/

One problem is there is not one site that has all the info, so I'm forced to check all three. Having all this data within Waze would allow me to stay inside the app without having to leave it.

        Not in Waze yet!?!?!?
        So... there's no need to be on the cutting edge of technology?

        Tried Waze for first time today after a friend’s recommendation. Disappointed to find out that Waze has no “electric car” type... this request has also been around for a while! Please add charging points. Electric car use is exploding right now! Adapt or be left behind!

        I would like to see an EV mode. Basically allowing you to swap gas station info with charging station info. My guess thiugh is that the gas info is sponsored and this would cost waze money in advertising. But I'd really really like to see this feature added.

        As a new user I was really surprised to see that the app, that seems modern to me, in no way is adapted to EV drivers! A major drawback.

        PLEASE add electric car charging stations to the Waze app. I love Waze but now I have to use other apps to find the electric car chargers.

        Mijn mening is dat je eerst een route moet kiezen, en dan alleen de zinvolle laad stations te zien zijn.
        Met bijna alle anderen staat je scherm barstensvol met laders, die het in de meeste gevallen niet doen, of je hebt niet de juist card om te gebruiken.
        Dus alleen relevante laadstations en met ook de bijbehorende benodigde card, of nog beter een APP zoals bij FastNed, kom ik bij een paal hoef ik alleen nog het paal nr te kiezen.
        De rest is dan via GPS al ingevuld.
        En nog mooier , maar dat is denk ik onmogelijk, een eigen laadkabel met chip, die het gewoon overal doet. ( systeem als Tesla )
