    Not all Superchargers are showing this yet, but select Superchargers started showing live stall availability to help with trip planning/congestion issues. Presumably, they've prioritized the busiest chargers first.

    It seems like the capability was added in the last general release version (8.0 (2.52.22)) which started showed the cost for idle fees on update but not stall use. Now this additional data is turning up. It wasn’t there before for the same charger and my car firmware version hasn’t changed.

    This is awesome!! I just confirmed on my car as well at 8.0 17.4.14...

    I also noticed that if you zoom the map out and select the supercharger it will show the bar graph status of all the visible superchargers on the screen!!

    Very cool! How far can you zoom out before it no longer shows you the red indicators? Can you see activity taking place across the world?

    Also, I'd be curious to see if Nav is intelligent enough to reroute you to less busy Supercharger stations. I'm sure it'll eventually be there, if not already.

    Basically, it remained dormant until they "unlocked" the feature. I wonder what other info is buried inside the latest software. Where's wk057 when we need him. @Tech_Guy, does he use forums?

    Just checked. It looks like you can only go a certain radius out before you can no longer see the Supercharger activity status.
