Fastned launches Apple CarPlay app for finding fast charging stations on the go

  • A Fastned app for Apple CarPlay was the number 1 asked-for feature by customers 
  • Electric vehicle drivers can now easily and safely find the nearest Fastned station while driving 
  • EV drivers  can also view real-time chargers availability and current kWh pricing, as well as directions through Google Maps, Apple Maps and Waze

Fastned, the European fast charging company, introduces its new station finding app for Apple CarPlay. With the goal of making fast charging as convenient as possible, Fastned has developed its own Apple CarPlay app, which will contribute to an even easier charging experience. EV drivers can now find Fastned stations, check pricing and real-time charger availability directly within their EV’s infotainment system.

Fastned CarPlay App

Apple CarPlay allows iPhone users to display their devices’ interface on a car's infotainment system. With increasing customer demand for the feature, Fastned’s software engineers have developed the Fastned App for Apple CarPlay, which is available for Fastned customers who are iOS users and have a compatible EV. More information can be found here.

The launch of the Fastned Apple CarPlay app is an important milestone for Fastned. We are happy to contribute to safer and more convenient electric driving by being only a touch away from the drivers’ needs, directly at their infotainment screen. The app has been developed in Apple’s closed environment, in line with Apple’s requirements. Our team continues gathering and processing customers’ feedback to further improve the user experience.

As most Fastned’s customers are iOS users, the company first focussed on Apple CarPlay. Yet, Fastned wants to provide all customers with the best possible experience, so expansion into other systems such as Android Auto is being explored.
