Are you DENSE? I never said a Tesla should know EA pylon status. You are intentionally trying to confuse forum members who might not understand the issue. Teslas can see and know the status of ever Tesla Supercharger pylon in the country in real time, and its internal route planner can adjust accordingly. Ford, Porsche, et al are part of the EA system and rely on its reporting of pylon status but CANNOT see the current status on a real time basis. so the car's internal planning systems are therefore impaired - a driver must use the EA app to determine current status separately from what they can see in the car, which is, by definition, not up to date and is UNRELIABLE - which is one of the many problems with the EA system that has gotten so many EA users in trouble - bad information or missing information about pylon status. Yes, you CAN use multiple systems and apps and MAYBE get conflicting information that will tell you that there MIGHT be an issue at a specific EA location, but you never really know until you roll up, or maybe choose to bypass out of excess caution. The whole thing is tenuous at best compared to the fully integrated Supercharging system. And yes, I have used both extensively. EA for less, because there ARE NONE on the Eastern Shore where I need them most - DelMarva, between Baltimore.DC and the Maryland/Delaware beaches, and none planned.Yes it is and as noted in near real time as the EA charger I knocked offline was reported almost instantly via the app.
No reason my Tesla would know status of EA chargers.
At this stage of development, I’d suggest getting the app and fob and a subscription for charger systems one will be using. With Chargepoint, the fob is the key. With EA and EVgo, the app is the key.
