There are different types of charging connectors used by several car manufacturers, for example, Nissan uses CHAdeMO, Tesla uses its instrumentation, and also the BMW and VW use CCS plug kind for charging their cars. Since the emergence of the EV search facility over Google Maps, the users were missing out on the ability to filter results based on the connector type, GizmoChina reported on Sunday.

The recent update will surely a sigh of relief for the daily drivers, it will facilitate them in driving their car to a compatible charging station. To use the new feature, the users can head over to the Google Maps > Settings > Electric Vehicle Settings >Your Plugs > Choose and save.

The company also announced that Google Earth now lets people browse more than 36 million square miles of high definition satellite images from various providers, covering more than 98 per cent of the entire population, to see the world from above.
