    There does not seem to be a single source for charger locations, or plug in places,or is there? No need for chargepoint.com as a suggestion, only their chargers, the built-in entune charger finder is limited as well.

    That's why I asked, you try it, type in 20878 or Maryland on the first site "no free charging stations in Maryland", while I know of 3 in my area.

    iPhone apps as well. Sorry, but I don't think there is just one that shows everything. Also, it tool like four months for a new one (1 mile from my house) to finally show up.

    Keep your eyes open...

    PlugShare works very well for me. If you find a station that isn't listed, add it.

    CarStations work the same way. You can add the station and submit photos and comments.

    One problem with the apps that show all charging stations is that often some of the charging stations shown at nonexistent. Plugshare, Recargo
    The chargepoint app is most accurate in their specific station listing.

    On plugshare and Recargo I will make a note on check-in if the station is no longer existent.

    And adding photos is very helpful, if they help someone figure out where the charger is.
