Great Routes/North America West

From Unofficial Zero Manual
Jump to: navigation, search
  • Each of these has more stations/stops than a person would actually stop at. The theory is that it's easier to delete waypoints than to add them.
  • All of the stops have been entered into the E-touring meta-map (with links to plugshare.com, tesla.com, etc.)
  • All routes should start and stop at reliable charging stations, J-1772, Tesla Destination Chargers, and NEMA 14-50 RV plugs are common reliable charging options in North America.
