Navigation: Charging Stations

Sat Feb 27, 2021 9:09 pm

I’ve owned my 2017 BMW i3 Rex for 2 whole days. All going well, but lots of questions. Starting with this one: I’m trying to see nearby charging stations on the navigation map, but the results are so wrong! I have a station about 1/2 mile from my house and it’s saying the closest station is 21 miles away.

Does it need an update? How do I solve this?

Are you subscribed to BMW Connected Services? Updated charge point locations are downloaded through this telematics connection, though I'm supposing some are hard-baked into the on-board map data.

That said, I've found BMW's list to be incomplete vs. using the PlugShare app on my phone.
