I agree. Blink installs 10 chargers in Balboa Park, holds a press event heralding them, and they're not even on the map?? C'mon, Blink, you can do better than that! :roll:

(methinks there are too many subcontractors in the Blink kitchen trying to cook!)

Here in Seattle, we have 4 locations live with more coming soon. The problem is that the map shows the physical location of two of the spots as being quite far from the real address. The map has the correct physical address listed but it shows the icon in the wrong place. I've notified Ecotality.

I see they don't list the granddaddy of Blink installs, the consumer units at Torrey Pines. I wonder if those will ever come on line, as they aren't "commercial" units--maybe the Lodge had Blink install them outside the EV Project?

Also, there was an event in Laguna Beach a week or so ago, too--where are those?

There's just not that much data to enter...yet. And with as little as there is, you'd think (or I'd think) you get it all entered before you had the map go live.

Those are Coulomb units. They appear in the Chargepoint map.

Well, the Balboa Park units appeared...sort of. It is listed as 1 available, and worse, you have to click on the Los Angeles icon to get it. Searching seems totally broken. Entering zip codes (even the zip of the actual station) just gets you no charging stations found, and entering an address takes you to that address with no indication of the closest stations despite them being well within EV range.

Edit: I guess you can just keep zooming out until a station appears, but that seems clumsy.

The people like me who got one at the Balboa Park event do, and a smattering of people have reported receiving cards in the mail. That's it.

D'oh! Sure 'nuff.

Wish they'd expand what they have in San Diego, too. Of the three they show, two are unavailable or new, the other is a nice perk for Qualcommers.
