ABRP 3.8 Release Notes

We are celebrating that ABRP users have planned over 10 million routes with the release of ABRP 3.8!

As usual, we release new features, bug fixes and car models continuously, but with ABRP 3.8 we also introduce some brand new updates:

  • Better road speed estimates; especially for those non-interstate roads where we have been quite pessimistic about speeds (and therefore optimistic when it comes to consumption). This is now much more accurate - let us know if you still find exceptions!

  • More alternative routes evaluated. Driving an EV slower usually means a lot lower consumption, and if you include charging into the equation, taking the slower (but potentially shorter) route may actually result in a faster overall trip. ABRP now evaluates more of those routes to give you better - and sometimes more scenic - routes for your trips.
  • We have brought navigation mode in ABRP! This is a very simple real-time navigation with turn instructions. As you get closer to a turn, ABRP will zoom in on the relevant part of the map and show you a textual instruction on how to turn. This may be all you need as a reminder to take the exit for the next charger - try it out! 
    • Enable navigation mode by clicking the navigation button on the right edge button bar   nav_button.jpg.f872a9fbae4d867d515bad8d682d06c2.jpg
  • Ferry lines can now be added as a waypoint: Just right click (or long click) the ferry line on the map and select "Add as waypoint". 
  • We have added a lot of new car models in ABRP, including the Porsche Taycans, Rivian R1S and R1T, Volkswagen ID.3 and many many more!

Enjoy!

Bo, Jason and the entire ABRP team

Sorry about that, a new server SW component broke and filled the disks with error logs. Now fixed!

Why is the Tesla Model 3 SR+ still in alpha mode? I reckon a big portion of the Model 3's are SR+ at the moment.
