    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.

    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!

    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.

    We generally pull data from supercharge.info, so a missing charger can be added there and we should pick it up within 24 hours of the update reaching that site.

    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.

    Earlier this year, I drove from Houston to Big Bend in a rented ICE, and absolutely loved the park. We cannonballed the drive (woke up at 5am and drove straight there), and I think it would be much more enjoyable to split the drive up and drive electric! I've been following the build-out of Electrify America's network, and I've identified a route that will work to get me to and from Big Bend once just one more of their chargers is available. The Plan The crux of the plan is the Electrify America charger they're building in Fort Stockton. From there, it's a pretty easy hop down into Big Bend. With a Bolt, we'll need to camp in the Rio Grande Village, as they have full RV hookups (NEMA 14-50s), which will make driving around the park a breeze. The other big gap on the plan is the huge empty space between San Antonio and Fort Stockton. Eventually this will be filled with chargers, but for now I'll need to plan accordingly. There are a huge number of RV parks along I-10, so I've selected one that looks interesting, the Caverns of Sonora, which I think we'll actually take some of a day at to explore and see the sights. On the way back, I'll probably pick one based on the niceness of the area, or just stay at Caverns of Sonora again. The other important piece of my plan is my Quick Charge Power Jesla Jr. Using this I can plug into any RV Plug I come across and get maximum juice. I've got NEMA 14-50, 5-15, TT-30, and a 6-50, which covers every plug I've seen at an RV Park. It'll be a fair chunk longer in an EV, but if my Lost Maples trip is any indicator, much more enjoyable.

    As a matter of fact, we do take that into account! We used charts like the ones published by Fastned (link) to create the charge curves for the various Leaf models. It should be very close to what you actually experience in the vehicle. I will also note that we don't take battery temperature into account when charging yet. Sometime in the future, perhaps.

    @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.

    Hi, thanks for a good reply. One other thing. In the e-Golf it’s really not worth it to charge past 75-80%. The general charge time from abt 20% to 75% is the same as charging from 75-100. Charging past 75-80% I would only do if I had to because there was no other chargers to briefly stop at for the next stretch. In Norway we also pay per minute at the charger so it’s really uneconomical also. I greatly appreciate that your site now also helps almost all EV’s. Keep up the good work. Regards, jpf

    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.

    Great to see the new Leaf on ABRP, thank you! As the Leaf does not like to charge too often (#rapidgate) I would love to see an option to set up a minimum charge level when leaving a charger. I know the ABRP strategy is trying to charge at best possible rates, but the Leaf's battery gets very hot with this strategy. Having the option to plan to charge to a minimum of XX% (e.g. 85%) would allow Leaf drivers to reduce stops and heat build up on their trip. Thanks again for your awesome project!

    Absolutely! This is on our wish list too. We would definitely have to have an app to use Android Auto, although there is a way if your phone is rooted. It's possible to mirror any app on your phone (including the browser) to Android Auto. Longer term, we are looking at building an app. What would you want the Android Auto features to be? Would you want to leave navigation up to Google Maps / Waze, and have us just provide statuses (and charts / replanning if your battery gets too low)? Of course full turn by turn navigation is much harder to implement well.
