    Where are you from? Alameda, CA What car do you drive? For the last year a Model 3 What's the longest trip you've taken in your EV? I am retired so I have time to play, but my longest trip is still my first real road trip to Colorado on 80 and back via Zion. Am I the only one that didn't get ABRP at first? I think I did my entire first road trip with the Tesla Trip planner on their website. I mean, who knows Tesla Supercharging more? And the interface at ABRP is crazy until you sit thru it. But even the Tesla planner could only handle part of my trip, so I had to plan it in legs. I finally figured out some of the advantages of ABRP and the biggest one is the number of waypoints available. I was able to go back and add all the stops on my first few road trips including my first big trip, and have used ABRP as an archive of those trips. The only other product that comes close is RoadTrippers.com, which doesn't have the location of, really, any chargers. AND I just noticed, is no longer free to use. I will miss its ability to find attractions I don't wanna miss. I recreated the trip as a single leg and it still managed to take all my stops on a 22+ day drive. I would more than double the number I have visited in a year of driving and several months of playing the Most Superchargers Visited game. I think it is the ONLY product that could handle that effort. Heck neither the Tesla nor Apple Maps even do waypoints yet and WAZE only allows one extra stop. Telsa.com/Trips and Maps.Google.com both had only a certain number of them causing me to give up on both of them. Now if ABRP could only handle saving changes to a named route, and perhaps some level of versioning, at least keep the last route that actually planned w/o error in addition to the edit I am working on. I am sure there is a reason that each trip is unique, and it must be about the shared links, I notice long after I delete a trip if I refer to a link I previously shared it still has that trip in that state. I just think some way to keep the site from creating so many multiple trips each time you hit save would be a great upgrade. Oh, and would be nice if the local charger data could be handled more gracefully. A tie-in with Plugshare.com would nice, though they are trying to branch out to do trip planning themselves. I end up using their product to find chargers at my destination and then tying those into my ABRP route. Anyway, that's me, and why I am here. -Randy My three favorite vehicles, LTV Serenity RV, '57 TM3, and a Kiwano self-balancing Scooter

    Hi I found this planer quite useful. Anyhow the consumption for a Kona electric EV 64 kWh seems to be fairly ok. Example 1: Driving from Wallisellen near Zurich / Switzerland to Silvaplana via Julier pass ABRP comes along with 46 % of charge in Silvaplana, when leaving with 100% - temperatures 25°C - max. speed on highway 125 km/h. We reached Silvaplana with 46% . Example 2: Driving from Wallisellen near Zurich / Switzerland to Falera comes along in ABRP with 59 % of charge, when leaving with 100% - temperatures 25°C - max. speed on highway 125 km/h. We reached Falera with 62%. That's not a too bad prediction.

    Hi Jason, Thank you for the model! Initial model seems to match smaller roads well (speed limits mostly 80 or 100 kmph): I planned route to summer cottage. It's pretty close to 100% SOC when driven about 5 kmph over speed limits in perfect and quiet road conditions. Model gives 106%, but it is also estimating the length of the trip about 5% higher than Google (same route on map) - I have to double check the true length next time I'll go there :) For a temperature accurate verification, it will take some time - most of my drivings are too short trips to be usable for verification :-/ With Best Regards, Jarkko

    @Jason (ABRP) I just checked and you guys already managed to add all the stations, this is amazing! Im really greatfull, i hope this incentives more of my compatriots to get EV's, sadly its only one charging stall per station but if they start getting used im sure they will add more. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

    You are absolutely correct, it should be bolt60, I've corrected the webaddress, so you should see it correctly in the instructions. Not sure how that one slipped past me. Glad to hear it's working!

    I looked up your telemetry on the server, and it appears to be correct there. I can't say I've tested ABRP on Safari, I don't have access to any iDevices or Apple laptops. Could you try it on a different device, say a windows laptop / PC and see if your data appears there? That would help narrow down where the issue is I need to fix.

    Hello, I have a Kia Niro EV and it’s great!!! Thanks for this amazong app ABRP!! I went on vacation with the Kia from Holland to Spain, costa brava, Playa d’aro. By the app I Made a route. I was a bit scary of how it wood go, because in spain charging is not Easy 🙈 In france the best wat is to have the chargemap pass and of New Motion (the work with IONITY supercharging stations (the best!) I was fully packt. I drove an average speed of 110 KMH and the Car had an average of 16.1 KW per 100KM I was very suprised about this great performance. This is over 1580 KM from my home to my vavaction location.

    You should be able to click on the alternate route to select it. Alternately, you can click where it says "Best Route" on the plan display, and see a dropdown of other routes:

    I like this a lot however I would use time as well as distance for the trigger.

    Hi yes, also I wrote an suggestion to get all weather data based on the GPS location Should be enough to calculate the data based on the route you choose. And it could be updated by the time you start your route Regards Niko

    This sounds like an excellent idea to me (an Aussie) as well! A related piece of goodness would be nominating that a waypoint is in fact an overnight stay with charging available that will result in 100% charge the next day. In other words, multi-day trip planning.

    This is already supported: Any chargers not shown are because they aren't in the databases we pull from (Namely OCM and NREL for North America). You can add them by right clicking on the map and clicking the "add missing charger to" link for the appropriate database.

    Good idea - similar to my suggestion here!

    New feature - next charger alternatives We just released a new (beta) feature which allows you to see what your next charger alternatives are while driving. ABRP plans are most focused on getting you to your destination as fast as possible, but there are of course other factors which matter in the real world. Pressing "Next Charger Alts" on top of the plan list will give you a pop-up dialog with your top-5 charger alternatives from where you are right now, including how much longer it would take to go for that charger compared to the (time-wise) optimal one. Let us know what you think!
