Change your region

The region settings in your PlugShare account influence the locations and the filters that you'll see on the PlugShare map. Changing your region is often helpful if you are searching for chargers in another country; maybe you live in Asia, but you've rented an electric vehicle for your vacation in Europe. While you don't need to update the region for your account, you may find that you need to update the region within your map filters to allow for different chargers or network providers that are specific to the region where you're driving.

For details on updating the region of your PlugShare account, select your platform below:

If you're traveling and also need to update your distance units to match the vehicle, you can find more here: Change your Distance Units

If you have moved to a new region and want to update your region on the account level, check out our article: Update your PlugShare Account

 

Important note:

When we say "your region," we're usually referring to either the country or even broader region where you are located (like the US or North America); this means that you will not need to update your region if you are in another area of the same country.
