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.

        Still can't set "fuel" to Electric! With more and more EV users on the roads it would be very useful if we could see EV chargers inside Waze. There are many apps providing good services but it should be in Waze too just like Gas stations.

        I understand this would be a lot of work considering all the L-2 chargers out there. If they would just start with Level-3 ChaDeMo, CCS and Tesla it would be a huge help!!

        There are several different charger types ( in the UK at least).
        Can you do a selection like with fuel stations.

        Would like this for sure. Guess I need to use Apple maps instead since they integrate with chargepoint?

        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.
