The PLUGLESS 240V wireless charging system features two displays to help guide the driver while parking over the charging station or “Parking Pad”:
- Alignment Arrows ^ v < >
- Parking Score (1 to 99)
After 2 years of testing and feedback from beta partners such as Google, Hertz, and LA Department of Water & Power, we evolved our PLUGLESS displays from a simple yes or no driver confirmation to a interface that includes scrolling forward arrows, left/right/backwards adjustment arrows, and a two-digit parking score. The System comes with the two-digit alignment score feature turned on, but this feature can be turned off during installation, if desired.
The alignment arrows help the driver position over the Parking Pad, and Parking Score is a secondary guidance to help train the driver to park consistently with more accuracy. Despite a Parking Score that ranges from 01 – 99, the magnetic field between the Parking Pad and Vehicle Adapter allows for significant misalignment and the exact Parking Score has a minimal effect on charging efficiency and no effect on charging speed.
The difference between the best and worst possible Parking Scores of 01 and 99, only equates to a difference in efficiency of only 2% points.
While the Parking Score is a supplementary feature to wirelessly charging your electric car, we often get feedback from drivers that it is a fun feature that helps to make a game out of parking. We’ve even heard of family members completing to get the highest score on record! To that we say, keep it up and CHARGE ON!
