Downloadable map files for electric vehicle, EV, charging stations in Norway, Sweden and Finland

About this service

The map files are provided in GPX XML-format and KML XML-format and are updated on a monthly basis using information provided by NOBIL.

The KML format can be used to create custom maps using My Google Maps and also allows importing the EV charging station list into various offline map applications like OpenMaps which is available for several different platforms.

The GPX format can be used to import the EV charging station list into your in-car GPS navigation system. Some car manufacturers like VolksWagen require the map files are digitally signed. That means the in-car GPS navigation system will reject the map file unless it has been processed by the manufacturer.

The map files contain the following information: Name of operator, number of CCS plugs, number of CHAdeMO plugs, number of TYPE2 plugs, lowest capacity in kW, higest capacity in kW, the GPS location of the charger and if the charging station is not open 24/7. Other plugs are listed as Unknown. Only charging stations which are publically available are listed.

The old way to do it

  1. Download the GPX and icon files below to your computer and then upload them at this page.
  2. Use a USB flash stick or a SD card medium formatted as FAT16 or FAT32 to transfer the GPS points to the in-car navigation system. The POI ZIP file generated by the web service should be extracted to the root of the medium you are using.
  3. Connect the medium to the in-car navigation system. Lookup the version information under configuration and press the Update button in the bottom of the screen. The new GPS points should now be transferred. After this procedure is done, press the power button for 10 seconds to force the infotainment system to restart and load the new GPS points.
  4. If the update procedure does not find the update, try deleting all files on the medium you are using and only extract the PersonalPOI/MIB2HIGH folder inside the generated POI ZIP file to the root of your medium. Repeat the update procedure.
