Could someone provide an update with respect to where the code is at
with updating Open Charge Map?
I know that I've been saying this was on my near-proximity radar, but I
wanted to let those who were more-familiar with OVMS do this... if they
I've been keeping tabs on recent opinions regarding publishing charging
locations, and privacy seems to be a substantial concern. For the most
part people don't want to see automatically-published charging locations
for private residences or other private-access locations. It is my
understanding that while databases like Plugshare may welcome private
residences others like OCM are deliberately trying to avoid inclusion of
these for privacy reasons.
Therefore, it may not be wise to publish charging info automatically.
Maybe the app could prompt the user each time a charge is completed with
a simple "yes" or "no" prompt to publish (or not) the charging
information to OCM.
