  1. Description: Instead of using a separate app to get live data from the car and onto the internet I would like ABRP to connect to the OBD2 dongle directly to improve ease of use Use Case: Since Carplay is added ABRP is a real alternative for routeplanning during the trip. However for the not so tech savy the chain of OBD2 dongle - live data retrieval and upload app (e.g. Torque / Evnotify) - internet access - abrp app is too cumbersome. So e.g. my wife will not use ABRP. If it would only require to run the abrp app and a check if the obd2 dongle is on, she would be fine. Remember, th

  3. Description: When in a tight area the route to be driven is the same as the driven route and the return route. Use Case: Have some translusent colour or dotted colour on driven route and another style on the return route to see the difference.

  4. Description: In the same way that we currently have preferences about which networks to use, I would like to see a preference to use sites that have more than one appropriate (CCS, Chademo, Tesla) charger. Use Case: In the process of planning a cross-Europe trip in a CCS car, I found that a lot of the stop were at sites with only one CCS connector. As it's an area I'm not familiar with I'd feel a lot more comfortable if it was preferring larger sites so that a failure is less likely to be catastrophic. Maybe this is something you can switch on in the settings, or maybe just have a

  7. I would love to be able to operate abrp with just the carplay display. So planing a route, updating soc in case there is no live data etc. all that should be possible just using carplay. I usually store my cell phone while driving - I do not like to have some kind of additional holder - it always feels clutched...

  8. Right now it seems like the „CarPlay“ display is considered more of a second screen. I would love to have it as main screen so I can store my cell phone out of sight and still plan a route, adjust the current soc (in case no life data is available) etc.

  9. Hi @Tanya, Red = Occupied Green = Unoccupied (These are only displayed for premium users when we have such data) Blue = Functional [previously white square, green outline] Grey = Assumed operational, we don't have status data Dashed/striped = Broken [previously black square, red crossed] /Katya

  10. Hi @alan stone, Android Auto is still in beta and there is currently no documentation for icons presented in AA. When you say: Do you mean that we in voice instructions said the SoC was 89%? What you're describing sounds like the icon for the charger at the next charger stop. What is of importance here is the circle part as the color(s) of it'll show you the charger status. And then you also have the kW value in the middle of it. You can provide additional beta feedback in this thread: /Katya

  11. Description: I want a route planner to give me the option of making a round trip to/from a destination Use Case: Most of my trips that I need a route planner for are round trips - like from Delaware to New York (and back) to visit my daughter. My car's range is more than the distance to the destination, so my route never contains a stop for charging. However, my car's range is less than to the destination and back. I might not have the ability to charge when I'm at the destination, so I'll be required to charge on the way back. None of the route planners I've seen can do this. What I want

  12. I often have a similar problem with home and destination address: When I select one of the saved addresses the app immediately crashes. If I type in instead the same address myself and let it complete by ABRP, it can be used without crash. iPhone 11 Pro, iOS 14.4.2, iOS App V4.0.41 (401)

  15. Have just started using ABRP and noticed the system shows Speed Limit in the bottom right corner. This is quite a difficult position to check quickly in a Polestar as this is very low down. Could this be moved to the top right hand corner? Also...(have also listed this under bugs)...the routing around roundabouts is set for driving on the right...but in the UK we drive on the left...any chance this can be changed for left driving countries. The spoken directions do take you the right way though😏.

  17. Description: only charge at Autobahn / Highway / Motorway Use Case: If i plan a route from Cologne to Munich ABRP find everytime some chargers that are 10km away from the A3 and did 20km more then needed. An option use onyl chargers at Autobahn Raststätten or Autohöfe will be fantastic. See attached pictures, nearly 20km instead of using an charger at the Autobahhn BR Dirk

  20. Hi Nix, Happy for you to sue the PID's that I've put together for the MG5 If I make any changes going forwards, I'll make sure to provide the update to your repository as well

  21. Agree, and on top of that it's not available outside of Europe at all. You can also do 1 with an AutoPi (which is available worldwide, and I'm using one for my Bolt EV), but again it's not cheap, and it's hard to do 2 with an AutoPi (but technically possible). The limiting factor is the AutoPi by default only allows local PID pulling via its WiFi network, which means you can't be connected easily to your car's wifi if you use wireless Android Auto / CarPlay.

  23. Check your TTS settings in android, i could switch between multiple versions of TTS voice, maybe there is one you like more. You can set the one that is used by default. Not sure though, if that has an effect on the used TTS voice by ABRP, never tried to change it and then test if the output differs.... Edit: i just tried it and it changes the voice used by ABRP, so check if one of the other voices sounds better to you.

  24. 4.0.40 (392): I like the zoom at junctions, although the functionality seems not to work in all situations where you expect it, e.g. on roundabouts. It feels that recalculation the route goes quicker. It seems to try to recalculate to the old route, although there is a better / quicker route to the destination. Don't know if the icons in the top right are new, but I find them useful. Already mentioned by others but the turning of the map before the turn is made is distracting and sometimes confusing. Overall the AA integration works really good already. Kudos to a

  25. i second (or is it third :) this request. I use myrouteapp.com to create a nice winding road round trip for the electric car or the electric motorcycle and it would be great if that route could be imported into ABRP and add the charging stops automatically.

  26. Description: I use another planning software for making a geocaching route. That has a feature to export gpx-files with coordinates. I would like to import that gpx file to ABRP, for letting it plan my charging stations. This would help the overall planning Use Case: There are a lot of geocachers all over the world, and many have begun to adapt EVs. So I thing this feature would be really helpfull for a lot of people.

  27. There is no sync between AA and ABRP so that the data is always the same. It's like two seperate apps. You can plan with ABRP and then navigate on AA. Did you try the energy saver settings? Maybe that helps with AA. This is definitely wrong behavior of Xiaomi Android version. Normally if there is an Android service it should also be able to run in background and not be locked. I heard of other people running xiamo with screen of when they adjusted energy saver settings.

  29. Supporting Tronity is relatively low workload (so we could fit it in our other priorities) but adds a lot of supported cars. Even if that support is not very complete, since it's only SoC.

  30. So, we've looked at this, and it's just not that useful. Updated SoC is nice, but it's very slow, and that's about the extent of the EV-specific data. You won't get a good calibration of your car model through most manufacturer APIs. They don't put anything aside from the SoC on there typically. To be useful for driving we really need insight into the power draw for the car, and this is almost never provided. So, with that in mind we haven't put any manufacturer API implementations close to the top of our list, we'd rather work on better app support (there's a lot to improve here), an

  32. I'm very happy ABRP has gone AA! I ran into 2 issues, though. 1. When using Android Auto place names are not rotated correctly. As a consequence, when driving southbound place names are displayed upside down. 2. When using Android Auto there is no way to show the detailed graph for elevation and estimated course of SoC on the car device (proposal: could be invoked with a click on the estimated SoC on arrival). The graph can be shown on the smartphone, but only at the first start after starting navigation. Later there seems to be no way to show the graph for the active navigation.

  35. As Google is pretty restrictive with Android Auto we have not so much control on the UI. For example there are no touch events allowed on the map right now, that we could use to implement a zoom in/out gesture. Also each car is pretty unique and does not use the same control knobs (if they have some at all). So its pretty hard to offer a generic zoom functionality right now. But this is on our TODO and we will try to find a way to add this. As already pointed out in the blog by @Jason-ABRP fancy map modes, vector tiles and other nice map features are currently not possible. And as also st

  37. With the release of Android Auto (beta) and CarPlay for A Better Routeplanner, we wanted to give you a status of what's currently working, and what's planned for each of these. To start out with, we're pretty restricted on what we're allowed to show on the screen in CarPlay and Android Auto, and there are some technical hurdles that we've had to overcome to get these working. Common to both, we've been putting a lot of effort into improving the directions readout. There's still a lot of work to be done, but we think it's improved from where it used to be. One of the hardest elements he

  38. Hi @green light, @Eugenius, @Ou Boet, @TomTomZoe, @Bill N! Can see this has been requested for quite some time now and there should be no problem with adding the kWh value by start and end SoC for the charging stop info. We'll have this implemented. Regarding pricing info, currently it is not specific. We use the standard rates since accurate and updated pricing data isn't exactly readily available. However in the future we do wish to find a way to improve this and even tailor the prices to whatever cards or memberships the user has. /Katya

  39. I used abrp on several long distance plans through Germany and other european countries and would appreciate if abrp could coach me along the route on the optimal speed to use. A bit like the warnings my Tesla gives to stay below certain speeds to reach my destination but more as a speed coach during the whole trip. Currently I goal seek the best trip times running abrp at different maximum speeds. Would be nice if an abrp coach would monitor the trip and make suggestions like “change your speed from 160 to 120 to skip the next fast charger and arrive at your destination 10 minutes earlie

  40. Due to “chargegate” it has been a lot of discussions about the charge curve on specific cars. I would like for ABRP to save all my charges to my account so I can take a look at historic SuC sessions. Use Case: When supercharging I would like to see a [‘charge’][‘power’] vs [‘charge’][‘soc’]. I would also like to be able to look at my historic sessions. I made my own implementation on a rpi with this result. p100D model X from April 2018. About 1500kWh charged at SuC.

  41. I am also supporting this idea as sometime I plan my route to visit certain regions out of the main roads by passing in montains or park areas. The idea would be to load a gpx trace and modify it with abrp to include charging stations manually. A better solution would be that after loading the gpx, abrp suggests charging locations close to the track.

  42. For some people having toilets (at the very least of facilities) at a charging point might be very useful information. Obviously more facilities like hot drinks, snacks. As a vegan I'd obviously like to stop at points where vegan options were available, but hey I know that's a loooong way away. Also if travelling with children/babies then facilities that are good for them while charging would be totally brill.
