    Description: Detailed description of the feature you want to add. Would be nice to be able to enter a margin for the ‘Charger arrival charge’ (CAC for now). Right now (when I set CAC to f.e. 20%), abrp wants me to stop and charge for just 2 minutes in order to arrive at the next (faster) charger with 20% SoC, which doesn’t really make sense. I wouldn’t mind driving to 16%, I just don’t want to stop for 2 minutes at a relatively slow charger but rather drive directly to the faster charger and go a few percentage point below my CAC. Of course I could set CAC to 10% or something in between 10% and 20%, but then it will still send me to an ‘in between’ charger for a few minutes, and I would rather not go that low structurally with an Ioniq with a relatively small margin to look for alternative chargers in case of an issue. Use Case: Describe how you would use the feature, or how often. This helps us assess prioritization on new features. I would use this especially on longer trips with multiple charging stops.

    Hi, ist Workshop! 🙂 👍 And because of the need I figured out how to use it on one device. So I split the screen so I could use it on one device 💡 And it worked.

    We would definitely love to build an iOS / Android app, but Bo and I are pretty short on time as-is, if we find the right person to help out it's very high on our priority list! Android Auto and CarPlay are different stories, I've done a lot of investigation as I have a Bolt which doesn't have a browser. Android Auto is very restrictive right now, unless your phone is rooted it's very difficult to get a display into Android Auto. I'm not as familiar with CarPlay, but I suspect it's similarly restrictive. Once we have an app, Auto / CarPlay will definitely rise up the priority list. For now, a pretty good workaround is to use the "webapp" feature that most browsers offer. In Chrome you can go to A Better Route Planner, select the ⋮ button and pick "Add to Home Screen". When you open that link, it'll be full-screen and work mostly like an app on your phone. Not as good as a native app, but not terrible either!

    What I envision is the following: ABRP on the "system" button in Android Auto (circled in red): You would have three views available to you when you switch to ABRP: Plans - List out all the plans you have saved on the site, or create a new one. To keep this simple, we only offer one destination at a time for in-car plans. Half of this screen is a simple map that shows you a map of the selected plan. You can switch between plans, and click a "Navigate" button to start navigating. The "Navigate" button changes to the Graph view and launches your navigation of choice. Graph - Shows you a graph of your consumption as planned vs actual Details - Shows you efficiency details, current step of the plan, next stop length, etc. You spend most of your time with ABRP in the background, following your plan. If ABRP determines you need to drive slower, or it has to replan to a new charger, it would provide you with a "toast" popup, and perhaps a voice prompt. The main reason that I don't want to do full-on navigation is that Google Maps / Waze / Apple Maps (yes, even Apple Maps) are way better than anything we could cobble together for turn-by-turn navigation.

    Are there any plans to have an IOS/Android app available? My car does not have a web browser like the Tesla and an app would be far more convenient. Maybe it could also be integrated with CarPlay and AndroidAuto ?

    I make fairly routine trips from my home in Delaware (in the USA,) to Astoria, Queens, in New York City. When I create a round trip to/from there, the route planner takes me through Manhattan in New York City to a charger there. Pretty much no-one will drive through Manhattan to get from west of New York to Long Island (where Astoria is) unless they have to. The routes that I'll get from Waze or Google Maps will be 1) via the George Washington Bridge - from northern New Jersey to The Bronx, and down to Long Island over the Robert F Kennedy Bridge or 2) Across Staten Island via the Goethals Bridge and then the Verizzano Bridge - from central New Jersey. Both of these routes bypass Manhattan to get to Long Island. In addition, the City of New York plans to charge additional fees to go through mid-town Manhattan besides the normal tolls, so it will be more expensive to go that way as well. I know that there are a lot of chargers in Manhattan, but...I'm not going there. Unfortunately, your route planner seems to insist that I go through Manhattan and, besides adding lots of waypoints to my trip, there doesn't seem to be a nice way to modify the route. Even when I eliminate the charging station in Manhattan, and the planner then picks something more reasonable, like one of the Supercharger stations on the New Jersey Turnpike, it still wants me to go through Manhattan. When I plan the same trip in Waze, it gives me routing options - usually 3 options - and allows me to pick one. It may be a longer trip, but it always comes out taking less time - sometimes by a lot. I realize that a longer trip is not necessarily the best for an electric car, but in a case like this, I'd opt for a longer trip. Perhaps you could add "Avoid city centers" to your "Avoid on Route" dropdown in the options area? Or optional routes like Waze?

    To verify and improve our models we need your feedback. There's many ways we could use help if you actually own one: Drive a plan and compare it to the actual battery used. Drive a plan with the browser active, and update your actual battery percentage in the browser. Contribute data via OBD or other methods. The best way to improve the data is to provide data directly from the car. Connecting your car not only improves the models, but allows you to follow up directly in the car while driving! We have several ways of doing that, but we need your help to figure out what will work with your car: An OBD reader can be used in concert with a custom app like LeafSpy, or a PID list and Torque Pro. If your manufacturer has an API to access data from the car we can set up access to that API, like we do for Tesla If you're familiar with either of these, contact me at jason@abetterrouteplanner.com and I'll help figure out what we need to do to connect your car! Thanks for providing feedback!

    Once you have made an account and then make a plan, at the top right above the initially starting point there is a button to "save plan". Push that button. Once you pull up the ABRP site in the car browser and log in there is another button "Saved Plans". Click that and you will have a list of your saved plans. Click on the correct plan and voila!

    We all know how weight/wind/wether has a huge effect on the range of all EV's, so I was thinking how many people the router planner is including when it calculate ? Is it driver only or does it also take account for possible front seat passenger, or is it a car full ( 5 people) without luggage ? In case that the driver is the only "weight" that is included in the calculation, wouldn't it be obvious to state that the driver is around " xxxxx amount" of kg ? I know that we have the possibility to add more weight under more settings, but it only state that more weight is trailer or heavy cargo. All those information I've listed above is quiet crucial for a family using this site to calculate or estimate the time travelling from home to a vacation destination.

    Description: Change (or Option) for wind speed in km/h. Use Case: Wind speed in metric countries is more commonly communicated in news and weather forecasts with km/h rather than m/s. For imperial you have used mp/h so suggest consistency with units when changing to metric.

    That's a very good point. At the moment, we're taking a shortcut on that, and trusting your manual entry of the charging parameters. I've added this to our internal issue tracker to add a "AC_Power_Max" value to each car so we don't provide unreasonable charge times at Level 2 chargers.

    On the new battery computation, it definitely wasn't live last weekend, I just pushed the code this afternoon. Based on the feedback, it seems I need to add some more computation parameters! Per the conversations, I've updated gids_max for the leaf40 to 115.4 For my own sanity, I wrote the equation out: And I believe that makes sense. It also works out to the prior equation when Gids_min is 0 (like in @JohnT's Leaf). So, here's what I've got right now: if model is not None: if model == 24: carmodel = "nissan:leaf:12:24:other" gids_max = 281 gids_min = 0 ahr_max = 65.4 elif model == 30: carmodel = "nissan:leaf:16:30:other" gids_max = 365 gids_min = 0 ahr_max = 83.5 elif model == 40: carmodel = "nissan:leaf:18:40:other" gids_max = 495 gids_min = 50 ahr_max = 115.4 soc = (gids-gids_min)/((gids_max-gids_min)*ahr/ahr_max) If we can fill in any other model parameters, I'd be happy to update for the rest of them! @Stefan_K, I just checked on the server, and it appears to be up and running. That message ("OK!") is the message that Torque Pro requires, I send a different one to LeafSpy, so you shouldn't be getting that response from the server. Can you double check that you have set the path correctly (http://abetterrouteplanner.com:4441/leaf## - where ## is your battery size)?

    As it turns out, I had another user propose a computation method to me in private messages, hopefully it matches up with what you were going to suggest! Decoding the inputs I'm receiving from LeafSpy, here's the formula he proposed to use to replicate the displayed SoC: Gids/(Gids_max*Ahr/Ahr_max) Where Gids_max = 281, 365, 460 and Ahr_max = 65.4, 83.5, 112.6 (respectively for the 24, 30, 40kWh Leafs) The idea being that Gids is a measure of the current actual capacity of the battery, and Ahr is the measure of the maximum capacity of the battery with degradation included. I've implemented this now on the server, so hopefully it doesn't cause any issues and matches up better to your displayed SoC! I've also changed it so that it won't do anything with data that includes a negative SoC. Did you have any other ways you'd want the filter to behave? If you'd like to review what LeafSpy sends my way, and make a different suggestion it's on pgs 39-40 of the LeafSpy user manual

    Description: Either split the units out per type: Speed/Distance, Weight, Temperature. Or add another option of Imperial (UK). Use Case: In the UK we use a strange mixture of Metric and Imperial. Speeds and Distance are measured in miles, but temperature and weight are in °C and KG.

    Very likely. iOS and Android both squash webpages in the background. Not easy to do from a website, but will be much more doable when we get around to building an app. I don't see an entry in the system for you (anything resembling stefan), and I see a lot of logging of "unknown user tried to send us data", so is it possible you have not yet registered on the planner site? We use the non-rapidgate "ideal" charge curve for the 2018 leaf. When I get some time I will try to guess the Leaf e+ charge curve so we can get that in the planner and give it a shot!

    I can check manually, or if you wait a couple of days we're preparing an update that will let you view some of your data live on the site very easily to confirm you're getting it through.

    Of course! We appreciate all feedback, it only helps to improve the planner! We'll continue to make improvements to charger selection, but until the chargers around you improve, I'm not sure you'll see much change in that route plan. We'll always try to recommend the "ideal" route, or the fastest route we can find. Most of the chargers between those waypoints are 40kW, where the charger in the city is 50kW. The charger in the city has multiple stalls, which makes it a more reliable charger, and thus we prioritize it. If you want to override the planner's choice of charger, it's pretty easy (just manually select one as a waypoint), but the charger in the city is "the fastest" choice. Now, what we may introduce in the future is alternate plan priorities: Minimum leg length time (only stop to charge every X minutes) Maximum charger stop time Optimize for lowest cost But all of these would require something of an overhaul to the back end planning, so probably not in the near future.

    We know that the Tesla credentials are very important to keep to yourself, and we have designed ABRP to keep things as private as possible. We never store your MyTesla password, only the token generated by Tesla. This is stored in browser local storage (like cookies), and not on our servers. If you tick "36h background sharing" we will remember your token in server memory (never on disk) for 36h to track your car and share statistics with ABRP. Hope that helps!

    120Ah i3's are in the wild now, eh? I'd best get on adding it to the planner then! Also, what is with BMW designating battery size by Amp-Hours? You have to know the battery's bus voltage for the Ah to be useful at all, and then have to do some mental math to get anything out of it. Probably just the fact that the raw number is bigger, so it sounds more impressive.

    Description: Add a setting that shows that other tires are used, for example winter tires or original/stock summer tires. In the most advanced you would almost need a complete database with all tires - rolling resistance and including the pressure as well. Most simple implementation, just a check box winter tires and resulting in a slightly higher Wh/km number. Use Case: (most) Winter tires will have a higher rolling resistance and range will be less.

    @Benja - That error means I'm still sending the wrong response from the server. Torque expects one kind of response, and I haven't quite figured out how to format the response the way LeafSpy expects, I suppose. If it's any consolation, I do see some data from several leafs, so it's likely yours is one of them! Send me a PM if you want me to check on your information directly, so we can figure out which one is yours. I am working on a telemetry display so you can just look at a little page on the planner to see your data and confirm it exists.

    Yeah, that's a known item we need to figure out the best way to implement, no models vary charge speed by external temperature right now. Charge speed is dependent on internal battery temperature, typically, so we'd have to do modelling to figure out what the internal battery temperature is based on how long you've been driving, how long you've been charging, etc. I suppose we could kluge it a little bit by putting a standard multiplier on the charge times when we return them, but it wouldn't be very accurate. I suppose more accurate than it is now.

    It's a shame the API isn't more useful, it'd be a lot easier to set up for a lot of people, and once a minute is good enough to track plan progress for you as a user, and I'm sure I could eventually get enough data points to build a solid driving model from that. I'll give a try to contacting Stephan Gauch and see what he's got, perhaps he's willing to help us out!

    Hi all ! It's been two months since I took possession of my Leaf 40 and I am really interested in your route planner. If I can be of any help, i can already tell you that I tested the very limit to when the car stops and from the attached Leafspy screenshot you can see there were 8 gids remaining and 1.8% SOC when the car had long told me I was out of energy ... I also have the Leafspy log of my journey if you're interested in it just tell me. Tomorrow, I will log to your server as I have a trip to do (190 km the morning and 300 km the afternoon) hope it works well.

    Nice! Thanks! What I can see it looks quite good. As the Leaf is my parent’s car I have limited possibilities to test, other people might have better feedback. However we used the car during the weekend to go to a shopping center. The distance was 45 km and there were charging possibilities so we started with 100% charge both on the way there and back. I checked the trip planning with ABRP using default reference consumption and battery degradation. The reference speed and max speed was set to best effort estimation. The actual arrival SOC according to the car display was very close to what was estimated with ABRP, very impressive. However I am not sure if I was driving exactly the same speed as in the plan, probably the speed was little lower due to the margin added on the Leaf speedometer. So on the way home I tested the driving mode (without LeafSpy connection). The estimated SOC was quite close, however I had to manually reduce the actual estimated SOC a 1-2 percent after a while in the driving mode. So the consumption seems slightly higher in our car. So some small conclusions (however this short drive is probably not enough for making conclusions): -Estimated arrival SOC quite close to the actual arrival SOC, impressive! -The available energy in the model is maybe a little high still. Our car will have less energy available with 5% degradation. -The reference consumption for our car is probably a little higher. But in general I think it looks very good! Next step is maybe to get good data from LeafSpy uploads to improve the model? But I have had issue with the LeafSpy upload. Last weekend when I tested I managed to get the upload working one time so that data in the drive mode was updated automatically, but after that it didn’t work. And this weekend I didn’t get it to work at all. I sometimes sees a brief fault message in LeafSpy with “java error” or something and the address to ABRP server. It is only showed for 1s or so which makes it difficult to read. What I can see I have used exactly the settings in the instructions in the blog. Tested with 2 different phones and two different ABRP accounts. Something other that needs to be considered?
