Change your Distance Units

We all know that units of measurement can vary based on where you're located, namely between metric units (km) and imperial units (miles). To keep things simple and most accurate when using PlugShare, we recommend that you match the distance units displayed in your PlugShare account to your vehicle's method of measurement. 

So if you are driving a vehicle whose distance units are different from your PlugShare account settings - maybe you've rented an electric vehicle abroad or the default wasn't correct - you'll want to change the distance units displayed in your PlugShare account. Select your platform below for specific details on updating the distance units shown in your account:

If you're traveling and also need to update your region, you can find more here: Changing your region
