A Mobile Experience
That Inspires Travel
The EV Co-Driver is a free navigation app specialized for electric vehicles (EVs) to reduce range anxiety for your road trips. Range anxiety is the fear that you may be stranded due to insufficient energy and also the uneasiness that you may feel when finding long wait queues and charger malfunction at charging stations.
EV Co-Driver will automatically choose the fastest route from starting point to destination via available charging stations with the shortest expected wait time based on current battery level, car charging requirements, and route options settings. (e.g. avoiding highways)
As EV Co-Driver remembers all the DRIVEtheARC and EVgo charging stations in the background, you no longer have to make complex charging plans before starting your trip.
For your reference, EV Co-Driver displays drive time, expected wait time, as well as distance and charging time at a station.
Navigation, SOC estimation & dynamic re-routing
EV Co-Driver will continue to calculate estimated remaining SOC and electric range in order to automatically navigate your best route to charging stations based on changes in your driving direction, EV’s SOC, and status at charging stations, among other factors.
If other navigation is needed, EV Co-Driver will transfer the route, destination, and charging stations to Google Maps as your guide. (Disclaimer: If you switch to Google Maps app for navigation, EV Co-Driver will not reroute based on any updated conditions or changes with driving direction, EV’s SOC, or updates to charging station status data.)
EV Co-Driver will display the charging guide to advise on the minimum required charging level for your trip to and from your destination.
We recommend that you charge your EV up to the target SOC or higher.
You will be able to leave the station below the target SOC and EV Co-Driver will assist your drive by navigating your route based on SOC data.
Station status information
EV Co-Driver will display information about the charging station including the charger status so you can route your EV to the most convenient location in order to charge.
