Hi all -
Currently I reside in Utah, United States of America and had wanted to know if any European’s had experience living with both an electric vehicle and not-smartphone? At least in the US there was a time when doing long distance, coast to coast traveling without a smartphone was quite difficult because many fast chargers only used smartphone apps or NFC readers. (Electrify America changed this by putting debit card readers on all their stalls). This was actually the main reason I held onto my smartphone for as long as I did. Things have changed though and now I can travel all across the US / Canada without a smartphone, relying on my paper maps and the internet on my PC occasionally.
Anyway, I’m curious to know how you Europeans get along without smartphones, charging your electric vehicles on public infrastructure. Do many of your stations have debit card readers or is it all smart apps? What’s the experience like?
