You can also order new cards or manage your cards - simply log in, go to My Account and Manage ChargeNow Cards.
2. Link a credit card to your ChargeNow account. If you need to access a paid station, we make it easy to sync your credit card when you create your ChargeNow account.
3. Find a participating public charging station.
- Download the BMW i Remote app to find available public charging stations, check their availability, and send their locations directly to your BMW i.
- Use the onboard BMW i navigation via the BMW ConnectedDrive services, to find public stations from your BMW i vehicle.
- You can also locate member stations using the ChargeNow online map, which displays which stations are in use, available or allow reservations.
4. Plug in and charge. To charge your BMW i vehicle at a participating public charging station, plug your vehicle into the charging station, tap your ChargeNow card over the reader symbol, select either 80% and full charge and press start on the station to start the charge. If you need to stop the charge, simply tap your ChargeNow card over the reader symbol and press STOP. Alternatively, you can start a session by logging into Chargenow.co.nz.
