I am hoping they put them strategically across the major trans-US routes to compliment the EA chargers (and hopefully create some competition to maintain reliability).
Problem with that is outlying areas get missed. We have that issue in WA now. WA has a lot of tourism stuff that is "out there" and not on the way to anything (Fact of life when you live in the corner) so they are not labeled as "corridors" and other than Tesla, are all but ignored.

The WA Coast barely has "any" L2's much less QC's. We have the only rainforest in the contiguous US and its all but inaccessible. We do have good coverage in the Puget Sound region, the Cascades and I-90 but get off the "corridors" and you are screwed.
And the Oregon Coast only has Chademo and Level 2. You cannot take a road trip along the Oregon Coast or to the Oregon Coast and expect to quick charge if you drive car with CCS.

I was actually looking at the map on the PlugShare App this morning and was surprised to see the lack of chargers on the Washington Olympic peninsula.

Yup, after 6 years with our Leaf we still can't drive to any CCS or Chademo site, even with the Bolt or Leaf + our closest is Milwaukee, nothing across the middle or nothern Wisconsin, but Superchargers are there and soon to be even across the UP of Michigan.

What about Midwest Renewable Energy? Or are you far north of Wausau?

It is just out of range of my Leaf, but yes a Leaf + could make it, but then to get to Minneapolis I would have to go 90 miles south to Madison and them 90 miles back north west. I thought about taking the Leaf to MWREF last year, but would have to stay under 40 mph to make it or sit at a level two a couple of hours. :)

Yeah, I have a plus and was looking at routes from Green Bay (being a proper Packer fan) to Minneapolis, and that stop made it workable.

With a 24 or 30 kWh Leaf, there is no easy solution.

You mean 24 or 30 kWh? There are no 24 or 30 "KW" Leafs. 24 and 30 kWh Leafs have 80 kW motors.

Does the US SL version of the Leaf/Plus have a “camera” button on right side of the road infotainment system? Watching a German video and they appear to be able to bring up the cameras while driving.

Also, any word if the auto parallel park system is coming to the US?

Although auto park wouldn’t be important for me my wife would like to see it. Not expecting it on our 2020 though.

The camera button is disabled while driving on mine. Also I've turned it on at a red light, it auto-offs when I start moving.

I would like it enabled, I've been in other models that have side view cameras enabled while driving.
