    We did a round trip from San Francisco to Los Angles in our M3 a few weeks ago. Using the navigation, it picks a supercharger to stop at. For example it had us stop at the Kettleman City, CA on the way down. Very nice supercharger with a Tesla lounge.

    However, we wanted to make another supercharger stop in LA prior to our destination to charge (there wan't a destination charger where we were going) and to get some dinner. Similar on our way home, we wanted to stop for a charge and food.

    I couldn't figure out a way to select a specific supercharger in the navigation and still have it route to our destination. We ended up using it to go from supercharger to supercharger. OK, but could be better.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks!

    AFAIK, the only way right now is to navigate to the charger you want to use first, then once you're there, navigate to your final destination. I agree that this would be a worthwhile addition - hopefully one of these days.

    Another option (if you're planning in advance) would be to use a tool like A Better Route Planner...

    Yeah there’s no intermediate destination at this point. Not really sure why. The salesman routing problem has been easily solved over 10 years ago.

    This is at the top of my wish list. Multiple location routing. Please pretty please. I do not keep wanting to resort to evtripplanner but at least there is an alternative.
