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.

        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 )

        It is a great idea for improving mobility !
        For France, for example, several websites show electric charging stations location : chargemap, freshmiles, sodetrel and all websites of the Energy authorities, such as www.eborn.fr for Rhône-Alpes...

        Yes, please make Waze even a better navigation app. Also, I hope it will be integrated with Car Play soon.

        Just bought an EV car and found difficult to deal with many apps especially if they are not available for Android car. In Canada I find that Chargehub is a very good app to find any network charging stations.
        Should have all networks please and if possible charging stations made available by owner's.

        Without this, it is more convenient to use Google maps combo with plugshare than Waze for long trips.
        Please prioritize this
