The new Gridserve charger along with Instavolt was the easiest to use I have come across. They are definitely the way forward. In just six weeks since a...

I used one of the Gridserve Electric Highway chargers today on the M62 East bound. A few weeks ago the old and newer version Ecotricity chargers at the same services both failed miserably. Today you plug in, tap your debit card on the screen and guess what? It actually starts charging right away and...

Re: Ecotricity sells Electric Highway charge point network to Gridserve - Great news!

I had my first experience of using one of the new Gridserve chargers on Saturday when returning from the Goodwood Festival of Speed. What an absolute joy to use, and fast too. Added around 40% in the time it took me to go into the services, buy and eat a sandwich. The way all charging should be. Go...

Re: Ecotricity sells Electric Highway charge point network to Gridserve - Great news!

This really is great news! Thats what I thought too, its about time Ecotricity had an owner who was prepared to invest in the infrastructure. Ecotricity is still Ecotricity, they have sold the “Electric Highway” part. Great news regardless! Most of us here are only interested in the charging side o...

Re: Google Street View

I might be wrong on this, but I think the street view only shows up for destinations. So when you type in your destination, it gives you the street view image of that location. But it’s only viewable as a sort of preview to help you find it when you get there. Once you start navigating it uses stan...
