eleven-x Unveils eXactnav to Provide Drivers With Easy

Real-Time Parking Space Visibility and Navigation




Innovative app features multiple wayfinding and personalization options, giving drivers a faster and more convenient way to find parking

WATERLOO, ON,  – eleven-x™, a leading IoT and Smart City technology company specializing in accurate, real-time stall occupancy monitoring, today announced the launch of eXactnav™ – a proprietary navigation app to help drivers easily and quickly find available parking. The app seamlessly integrates with the company’s award-winning, smart parking technology solution, eXactpark™ to provide real-time parking information and flexible navigation options to open spaces. By assisting drivers in finding suitable parking, eXactnav helps reduce searching and improves mobility and sustainability while supporting greater community safety and balanced stall use.

The comprehensive app offers multiple navigation options that drivers can choose from:

  • Spot – drivers can choose a specific parking stall and the app will provide navigation to that exact spot. Importantly, since the app integrates with eXactpark’s real-time parking data, if the space becomes occupied while a user is driving to it, the app suggests other available options
  • Destination – when going to a specific destination, the user can select the area on the eXactnav app to see available nearby parking spaces
  • Zone – users can search for available parking options within a certain area or radius of the city/location

Drivers can filter to find parking availability by space type including paid, free or reserved parking; handicap accessible spaces; electric vehicle charging stalls; parking zones with time or loading limits (like quick stop/15-minute parking) and motorcycle stalls. These settings can also be saved on the app for later use.

“eXactnav furthers our mission to improve the parking experience for all,” said Dan Mathers, CEO, eleven-x. “Drivers will appreciate the app’s stress-free navigation and personalization options. Additionally, for the cities and institutions who are already leveraging our eXactpark smart parking solution, eXactnav is another powerful asset that will help them further reduce traffic and improve mobility.”

Additional unique features that make the app stress-free for drivers and enable them to customize it include:

  • Future Availability – drivers can select a space in advance and receive a notification when it becomes available, allowing people to plan in advance.
  • Parking History & Favorites – maintains a history of users’ parking sessions and allows them to save their favorite parking locations or zones for quick access in the future.
  • Accessibility – has features like text-to-speech input, high contrast text / background design and larger font size settings.

The smart parking app, which is set to launch this fall, is compatible with Android phones (versions 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13) on Google Maps and iOS devices (versions 15 and 16) with Apple or Google Maps. For more information, please visit

Beam Global Launches 160 mph Wind-Rated EV ARC™ Sustainable EV Charging Infrastructure Products

Beam Global Launches 160 mph Wind-Rated EV ARC™ Sustainable EV Charging Infrastructure Products



SAN DIEGO, Sept. 29, 2023 — Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable products and technologies for electric vehicle (EV) charging, energy storage, energy security and outdoor media, today announced its third generation EV ARC™ product line of solar-powered EV charging systems with a wind rating upgraded to 160 mph. EV ARC™ infrastructure systems are designated by the federal General Services Administration (GSA) as disaster preparedness response and recovery products due to energy security and resiliency capabilities during grid outages and natural or man-made disasters.

Beam EV ARC™ systems are independently rated to withstand winds of 160 mph and can continue to operate in up to 9.5 feet of flooding. Each system generates, stores and delivers its own clean electricity and can be equipped with any quality brand EV charger, and an optional Emergency Power Panel which provides 120v and 240v outlets for use by first responders or other authorized users when utility power is not available. Earlier this year, EV ARC™ systems in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas, which were in the direct path of Hurricane Idalia, continued to provide vital EV charging and emergency power throughout the storm.

“Beam’s mission-driven culture goes beyond sustainable EV charging and energy storage to address the global problem of energy resilience faced by electric grids worldwide,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Beam Global. “We believe 25% of EV charging infrastructure should be off-grid and powered by locally generated and stored electricity so that we can ensure that we have redundant sources of fuel during the rapid transition to electrified transportation and growing threats from climate change and other externalities which can put our centralized grid infrastructure at risk. The United States has a Strategic Petroleum Reserve to ensure that we do not run out of diesel or gasoline. Now Beam Global’s products are providing the beginnings of a Strategic Electric Reserve so that we have the same level of security as we transition to the electrification of everything.”

According to Climate Central U.S. data analysis, about 83% of all reported power outages from 2000-2021 can be attributed to weather-related events, with the most recent decade from 2011-2021 experiencing 64% more major power outages than the previous decade, with an estimated $150B-$200B in costs to U.S. business every year.

GSA’s Disaster Purchasing Program expands purchasing beyond federal agencies and allows state and local governments to buy directly from GSA Schedules to facilitate disaster preparation, response or major disaster recovery. Available now, the next gen Beam products can be purchased by local, state and federal agencies off GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract Number 47QSWA21D0006 which simplifies the procurement process and ensures best pricing. Small, medium and large businesses can purchase the same disaster-rated products directly from Beam Global at

Blink Charging Selected by Jon Henry General Store to Supply EV Charging Solutions at Historic Location in New Market, Virginia

September 27, 2023


Blink Charging Selected by Jon Henry General Store to Supply EV Charging Solutions at Historic Location in New Market, Virginia



Electric vehicle drivers will be able to charge up on the new Blink chargers and enjoy Jon Henry’s farmer’s market at a ribbon cutting event on September 27, 2023.

Miami Beach, Fla., Sept. 27, 2023  — Blink Charging Co.(NASDAQ: BLNK) (“Blink” or the “Company”), a leading global manufacturer, owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, announced today that the Company will be installing six Level 2 (L2) chargers at Jon Henry’s General Store in New Market, Va. A ribbon cutting event will mark the installation on September 27, 2023, from 4 – 5 p.m. EST at Jon Henry’s General Store at 9383 N. Congress St. in New Market, Va.

The installation of three Blink IQ 200 Advanced chargers and three Blink IQ 200 Smart chargers at Jon Henry’s General Store reinforces Blink’s commitment to the Mid-Atlantic Electrification Partnership (MAEP). The Mid-Atlantic Electrification Partnership is focused on creating a regional EV ecosystem in Virginia, West Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland to connect the Mid-Atlantic Region’s cities. This will enable the utilization of all sizes of EVs (light, medium and heavy duty) for fleets, transportation network companies, and consumers alike. Blink’s ongoing collaboration with MAEP involves the deployment of a total of 200 networked 19.2kWh L2 chargers in the region through 2024.

“The Mid-Atlantic region’s transportation will be electrified through community-centric charging stations,” said Jim Nemec, Chief Revenue Officer for Blink Charging. “Our work with Jon Henry’s General Store is a perfect example of meeting EV drivers where they are with targeted charging convenience. We look forward to electrifying New Market and bringing the future of transportation to a historic location.”

Jon Henry’s General Store opened in 2018 in Virginia’s New Market district. The general store made its home in New Market’s oldest building, acquired the adjacent Weaver Hotel property, and is now complementing both with the latest in EV charging technology. The collaboration between Blink Charging and Jon Henry’s General Store marks an intersection of tradition and innovation. Known for their emphasis on Fair Trade, working locally with over 200 farmers, growers, bakers, and locals to keep stocked locally, Jon Henry’s General Store is focused on making positive community impacts and building connections – in line with Blink Charging’s mission to do its part in slowing climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions caused by transportation.

“We are excited to offer another amenity to our customers and community. It’s exciting to see folks stopping in our town to explore while their car charges,” said Jon Henry, Owner of Jon Henry General Store. “We’ve received positive feedback from our guests that the Weaver Hotel rooms are booked specifically for the chargers. We found working with Blink to be a great experience and easy to integrate into our footprint in noninvasive ways.”

The installation of Blink chargers at Jon Henry’s General Store is the latest installation made by Blink under the Mid-Atlantic Electrification Partnership. Blink has placed Level 2 (L2) charging stations across six hotel locations in Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland. L2 charging stations are well-suited for EV drivers to charge their vehicles while visiting retail, entertainment, and travel destinations. Blink and Jon Henry’s General Store are able to lead and innovate within their industries by making EV charging as convenient and accessible as possible.

Today’s announcement follows Blink’s Q2 2023 earnings release, the strongest in Company history, which saw total revenues increase to nearly $33 million for the quarter. Blink also announced it raised its 2023 revenue target from $100 – $110 million to $110 – $120 million and is targeting a positive adjusted EBITDA break-even run rate by December 2024. Blink’s growth is notable, as it places the Company among the relatively few U.S. companies that have adopted a vertically integrated approach to electric vehicle (EV) charging. Blink not only manufactures and sells charging equipment but also operates a network of chargers connected to its infrastructure.


About Blink Charging

Blink Charging Co. (Nasdaq: BLNK), a global leader in electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment, has contracted, sold, or deployed nearly 78,000 charging ports worldwide, many of which are networked EV charging stations, enabling EV drivers to easily charge at any of Blink’s charging locations. Blink’s principal line of products and services includes the Blink EV charging network (“Blink Network”), EV charging equipment, EV charging services, and the products and services of recent acquisitions, including SemaConnect, Blue Corner, BlueLA and Envoy. The Blink Network uses proprietary, cloud-based software that operates, maintains, and tracks the EV charging stations connected to the network and the associated charging data. With global EV purchases forecasted to half of passenger cars sold in the US by 2030, Blink has established key strategic partnerships for rolling out adoption across numerous location types, including parking facilities, multifamily residences and condos, workplace locations, health care/medical facilities, schools and universities, airports, auto dealers, hotels, mixed-use municipal locations, parks and recreation areas, religious institutions, restaurants, retailers, stadiums, supermarkets, and transportation hubs.

Following his successful and groundbreaking first book, which is commonly described as “a parking -cult classic memoir”, The Quirky World of Parking, Larry J. Cohen, CAPP, a certified parking professional (yes, there is such athing) and 40-year veteran of the industry, has unearthed even more outrageous and crazy stories. Among the many stories:

As Cohen says, “My goal is to provide a fascinating look into the business of parking from an industry insider perspective and share the many crazy, funny and sad encounters we deal with every day,”

When you drive your car and have trouble finding a space, or hate paying for parking, or get a parking ticket, or worseyet, towed, this quirky – as the title says – book on parking will give you a whole new perspective on something you probablycan’t live without, but know very little about.

Parkopedia and Blink Charging work together to make seamless EV charging accessible to more North American drivers

Parkopedia and Blink Charging work together to make seamless EV charging accessible to more North American drivers




  • Collaboration sees Parkopedia adding nearly 12,000 Blink public chargers to its in-car EV service
  • Parkopedia grows its global network of charger locations, while Blink services are delivered directly to EV drivers, with charger locations being visible from vehicle head units
  • This cooperation provides US drivers with a seamless charging experience across a greater number of chargers and facilitates the collection of new charging data, enabling Parkopedia to provide more accurate charger availability predictions to drivers


22 September 2023 – London, UK / Florida, USA


Connected car service provider Parkopedia and one of the largest Charge Point Operators (CPO) in the US, Blink Charging, are working together to provide EV drivers with an improved charging experience. Parkopedia users are now able to access nearly 12,000 Blink public chargers across more than 4,000 US locations, directly through their vehicle head units, providing EV drivers with the greatest possible convenience and charger visibility.

This agreement further increases Parkopedia’s presence in the North American market, with the company expanding its ‘Park and Charge’ EV service for its various automaker customers. Additionally, the service gains ‘live’ availability data from Blink’s network of chargers, enabling the company to provide drivers with increasingly accurate parking and charging availability predictions, as part of a more complete EV charging experience.

This addresses US EV drivers’ most significant concerns, cited in the 2023 Global Driver Survey, including nearly 60% being concerned about finding charging away from home and more than 1 in 3 drivers struggling to find EV public charging locations “all the time” or “very frequently” – both higher figures than any other featured country in thesurvey. Furthermore, 53% of US EV drivers shared they have been unable to charge when needed previously due to chargers being occupied by other vehicles on arrival.

More concerningly, 73% of American EV drivers have run out of charge before – again more than drivers in any other country surveyed. As a result, 92% of US drivers would be more likely to purchase an EV if it had ‘Park and Charge’ functionality to simplify the process of finding suitable charging. These survey figures highlight the value of providing seamless charging experiences to American drivers, helping more drivers transition to EVs and reducing charging anxiety by preventing them from running out of charge or failing to locate suitable chargers while travelling.

Parkopedia regularly validates parking and charging data to ensure that accuracy is as high as possible, with ‘dynamic data’ helping to provide drivers with valuable parking and charging predictions for when spaces orcharging stations are most likely available. Parkopedia and Blink are exploring the scope of the collaboration to provide even more solutions in future, with the ambition of further streamlining the process of parking and charging for EV drivers.

Commenting on the new agreement, Adam Woolway, Head of EV at Parkopedia, said: “We recognise that parking and charging are increasingly interlinked and we are continuing to simplify the charging experience for EV drivers,as seen in this new collaboration with Blink. We also recognise the significant challenges facing US EV drivers in particular, highlighted in our 2023 Global Driver Survey with the US topping the table for the majority of charging-related issues – from failing to find chargers to running out of charge. We strongly believe that our connected car services and new integration with Blink will further support drivers and help prevent them from experiencing such issues in the future.”

“Our collaboration with Parkopedia creates a streamlined experience for EV drivers to conveniently access Blink charging stations across North America,” said Mike Battaglia, Chief Revenue Officer for Blink Charging. “The combination of Parkopedia’s excellence in serving drivers through convenience in parking accessibility and Blink’s extensive range of public EV chargers gives EV drivers confidence in finding a reliable charging experience wherever they are. This initiative builds upon our strategy of making it easy for EV drivers to locate Blink chargers through a variety of platforms.”

ParkMobile: U.S. Drivers are Eager for a Mobile Payment Solution for Parking to Reduce Driving-Related Stress

U.S. Drivers are Eager for a Mobile Payment Solution for Parking to Reduce Driving-Related Stress



According to a survey conducted by the most used parking app in the U.S., ParkMobile, over 74 percent of U.S. drivers desire a smart parking payment experience




Atlanta, GA – – ParkMobile, the most used parking app in the U.S. and part of the EasyPark Group, conducted a survey tracking the parking habits and trends of U.S. drivers. According to the study, 82 percent of drivers across the U.S. note that searching for a parking space is a top stressor when driving in urban environments. Though, of the drivers using parking apps such as ParkMobile to find and pay for parking, drivers’ stress levels drop by nearly 33 percent.

The study found that concerns of paying for parking, including searching for ticket locations when using parking kiosks or meters, are drastically reduced through the integration of mobile payment apps and providers. ParkMobile is expanding its footprint and providing solutions that help drivers find and reserve parking in advance via the reservations platform to create an easier parking experience to meet the demand of the 74 percent of drivers craving the availability of a mobile parking payment solution.

“Searching for parking in dense downtown ecosystems is not only harmful for the environment through increased carbon dioxide emissions but stressful and will ultimately tamper the way drivers view and interact with their cities in the future,” said David Hoyt, managing director of ParkMobile. “Through the integration and adoption of ParkMobile, we’re making cities more livable through our easy-to-use mobile parking solution, so downtowns thrive and residents and visitors feel stress free.”

The report also found that around 80 percent of respondents find it important to be able to use the same parking app across multiple locations and states. Despite this, around 30 percent of respondents are unable to use their preferred mobile payment app for parking across the country as the apps are not always accepted at their parking location. The lack of choice and availability has resulted in many drivers having three or more parking apps installed on their mobile devices to pay for parking in the U.S.

“As part of EasyPark Group, ParkMobile is working to adopt an open market solution, a process that our company has integrated in key cities across Europe. The solution allows for multiple app-based parking providers to be offered in a city, making parking more straightforward while fostering parking technology innovation and placing consumer choice as the top priority. An open market parking model is a key contributor to digital adoption and can drive mobile pay adoption to over 90 percent in cities where it is implemented,” said Hoyt.

Since being founded in 2008, ParkMobile has processed over 98 billion minutes of parking in North America. ParkMobile works with cities to provide real time parking data and trends to better plan their urban design. This includes some of the two million parking spaces across the country, in over 600 cities and municipalities and 140 colleges and universities.

The study was conducted by ParkMobile with over 3,000 respondents located across the U.S. Respondents included drivers aged 16-75 as a representative sample of over 261 million monthly parkers in the country.
