    Hi, can you please bring abrp to android auto so we can use abrp directly from our head unit? Thanks

    Definitely haven't given up, just not the top of the priority list yet. Need to get the app completely up to snuff with the website, then we can really start adding features like AA and CP.

    We have long-term plans to support both! We want everyone to be able to drive with their EVs, regardless of phone choice. Back when we only had the website, I looked into (and successfully displayed the website using) that Android Auto hack. But it was incredibly glitchy, and Google closed the exploit in recent versions of Android Auto. That said, it's very hacky and not the kind of experience open to anyone we want to give. When we do bring ABRP to Android Auto / CarPlay we'll be playing in their rules, so we'll provide as many features as we can, while still being approved to run in the cars.

    Description: Support for Apple CarPlay Use Case: Would be nice to see the application to appear on Apple CarPlay. Waze and other Navigation software till now doesn't support Electric cars and we don't see the charging points. This should be a enormous advantage for this app, even against builtin GPS from manufactures which are the moments always outdated!!! Thanks Miguel

    It's something pesky we haven't solved yet, and annoys me too as it does it on my device as well.

    Driving Model: The Vehicle is a Energica EVA EsseEsse9+ with a battery of 21,5kw/h (18,9kw/h useable!). I had a windshield on it but its really small, probably does not have a significant impact on the power consumption. https://www.energicamotor.com/energica-eva-esseesse9-old-school-electric-motorcycle/ Option 2 - Data-Driven - Perform driving test at multiple speeds, and record efficiency or power draw from the pack. I have collected the data with kw/100km as this shows the first decimal on the dashboard where the power does not show it and converted it with the formula: power=<kw/100km> / ( 100 / <speed> ) I was not able to legaly drive > 130km/h in our country, as soon as i can drive to germany i can provide this data aswell if really needed Speed KW / 100km KW 30 km/h (20mph) 4,0 1,2 45 km/h (30mph) 4,6 2,07 60 km/h (40mph) 6,2 3,72 75 km/h (50mph) 7,6 5,7 90 km/h (55mph) 9,5 8,55 100 km/h (60mph) 10,8 10,8 110 km/h (65mph) 12,8 14,08 120 km/h (70mph) 14,5 17,4 130 km/h (75mph) 16,5 21,45 140 km/h (80mph) 150 km/h (85mph) Charging Model: Charge Curve - Provide a link to a chart or video detailing the charge power over time or by State of Charge % I will provide this data as soon as I get to charge it from 0 to 100

    Same here the app should get data from OBD2 directly, so no other apps woulb be neeed.

    This is one we've tracked for a while, and think we have a good idea for how to implement. It's lower priority than our app work for now, but we definitely like the idea!

    Now creating a plugin for OVMS to support ABRP. Documentation is available here: OVMS Documentation

    It was mentioned that it's technically possible to get ABRP running on Android Auto although not really recommended. Still, i was a bit bored and had an old phone so decided to give it a try. Keep in mind, this is on a 7" screen in a 5 year old car that did not originally have Android Auto enabled. ABRP is being displayed using AA Stream which needs root to do so.

    During route planning but also while charging ABRP shows the planned start and target percentage. I assue internally ABRP knows how many kWh has to be charged. Would it be possible to show the planned amount of charged kWh so one could estimate the price using his charging card? Example output: 23% - 83% (20 kWh)

    Could you post a link to the chargers (click on the charger, click share) so I can take a look? We're aware of an issue with out-of-date information coming from Plugsurfing, and we're looking into a solution, although if those are from a different source I'd like to investigate there too.

    Is it possible to work ABRP with Open Vehicle Monitoring System like EVnotify. I use OVMS every day and it would be nice if i could use it with ABRP together. More info about OVMS can be found on https://github.com/openvehicles/Open-Vehicle-Monitoring-System-3

    Thanks for contributing your data to ABRP! We've added setup instruction to a page within the planner itself to simplify the setup process. To set up live data for your car, navigate the ABRP Planner and select "Settings > Select car model > Add My Car". You can see a comparison of the vehicles we support via OBD and other methods on our site: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/compare/livedata/ And we are happy to add more once it's possible to retrieve data via an OBD adapter! Please let us know if you've managed to pull data from your car, we'd be happy to work with you to add it to ABRP.

    Not public, but we do have a very full backlog of issues and cards to tackle. Perhaps one of us should spend some effort on a blog post detailing what we see on the nearby horizon. The short version is we have two three main focuses: Improving the App UI and fixing bugs Improving the Live Data driving experience / supporting more cars Adding new features to the App #1 isn't very sexy, but it really needs to be done. 2 as well, we really think Live Data driving mode really makes the EV road trip experience complete. For 3, we don't really want to spill too many beans before they're ready, but you already know of one now.

    Now that ABRP finally has an Android app, can you please add support for directly receiving data from Bluetooth OBD dongles? It is very cumbersome and inefficient to link another app like Torque, upload it to a server, then download it back again. Also, when in areas with poor or no LTE coverage, the system doesn't work.

    Description: If you click on the drive history and select a day you see a summary with for each drive next to distance, time, avg speed also avg consumption Use Case: looking at previous trips I want to know consumption data to get a feel for key differences and to understand how to interpret a planned route Is nice to have, not in any way critical, but for me it would mean that I do not have to use web.evnotify.de for that anymore (so purely convenience)

    So seems like a lot of those things are possible to get from the bluelink endpoints. I think making something that can work is possible so I'm down to help with whatever is needed.

    Chargeprice.net offers an APP and an API to retrieve charging costs. User sets up which MSP charging cards they have, and chargeprice.net tells them how much they will need to pay at a charge point if they want to charge from x% to y%. They can then pick the cheapest charge card for the charge. ABRP should use that information to determine how much each charging stop would cost (given the cards the user owns, it can find the cheapest option for each stop). Next, if there are different routes available, ARBP can optimise for cost, not only for travel time.

    Definitely still on its way. Right now our biggest hurdle is figuring out what we can actually implement in Android Auto within Google's rules. As far as non-Tesla live data, we're including as much as we can with the data we have available, and the networks who are willing to connect with us. If you want us to add a network, it would be very helpful for them to hear it from more than just us asking to have access.

    For me, Carplay is the most desired functionality for ABRP right now, and the only thing that keeps me from paying for a Premium membership that has just been rolled out.

    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!

    Description: Button that routes to nearest compatible DC fast charger Use Case: I have Interstitial Cystitis and require using the bathroom every 30-60 minutes. 90 minutes at best. Others have Crohns, or IBS, and some folks just plan poorly. The point is that when you have to go, you've gotta go. But sometimes you know roughly how long you can hold it for. An "I gotta pee" button that you can push that routes you to the nearest compatible DC fast charger based on what's configured in your profile on the site would be nice. Bonus points if it can determine whether the charger is available for use or not. Not practical in all cases, but would be nice to be sure.

    Description: Add a setting or option to minimize the number of stops required on a given trip. This could be a simple checkbox in the advanced settings menu to minimize stops, and it would calculate a route with the fewest possible number of charging stops possible within the given route, with the understanding that each stop could be longer. Use Case: The default route planning behaviour appears to be to minimize the amount of time spent charging at each stop. However there may be cases where I would prefer to take a longer stop and make a longer drive with fewer stops overall in my trip. Rather than manually set each charging station to "take a longer break", it would be nice for the route to just be prioritized for longer but fewer stops.

    Description: Export Timetable as JPEG or PDF Use Case: I want to share my ride. So others can see it. Or save it for me. In the photo libary oder in Dropbox. For short planning it is ok to use pc screen capture. But for longer there is no good way.

    The problem is that the ABRP app does not yet have support for live data - but we are working heavily on it and it will be released in a week or two.

    This is an issue we're actively working, unfortunately with the app release we're seeing much bigger hits on our tile servers. Doing a forced refresh sometimes does the trick, clearing the cache won't do much (and may worsen the problem, as it'll clear any cached map tiles forcing you to redownload them). This is a very high-priority item for us, and we'll solve it as quickly as we can.

    Like others I have very good coments on ABRP but am unable to get maps and planners to recognize charging stops other than Tesla. Model 3, long range, duel motor. Annual trip pplanned to Cape Breton Canada. Last Tesla super Charger , Aulac NB at border of Nova Scotia. Make this trip every year but this first in EV. Although i have indicated other Charging I can use, such as J1772, 14 50 I can not get those stops to display on planner.

    Definitely something we can think about, though not a capability yet. The question is how best to implement such a feature, perhaps once charging has stopped at a given waypoint push the next destination? I'd expect something like a checkbox "Auto-push to Tesla" or similar.

    Sorry for the delay on the mobile app development. I was bothered with my other stuffs this month. I talked with the Bo earlier in July and started development in August. I would say the progress for now (actually I didn't have time working on any of it this month tho) for now is 80% done. I will resume the app development and polish next week and hopefully I would have a preview for you by the end of this month.

    The "old" Edge does not support one of the key Javascript features we use in the new web app. However, the "new" Edge (version 79+) works fine! We're adding a dialog to inform users about this.

    Instead of assuming an unlimited time at a stop for a "long break", can we add an option for "Take an extended stop" with a field for how long to wait? So, if I know I'll stop for lunch or dinner I can say "Stop for XX minutes", then hit the road. This would give an option between a 20 minute minimum charge and a 90 minute "full charge" to more accurately reflect the 45 minutes or so that I stop with my family while eating.

    I've just started using ABRP as an in-car tool rather than just a planning app, and I'm finding it rather difficult to use. I'm wondering if we can have a discussion about improving it. I expect some of this comes from the difference of using it on a large built-in interface (e.g. Tesla) vs a phone or tablet, so maybe these features want to be optional or selected on the user-agent string? Generally I'm finding the interface too busy and cluttered, and I need to be too precise to use it in a moving car. It takes too much attention away from the road, so I wanted to feedback what I think could be done to simplify things and make it safer to use. All of the changes I'm talking about are in reference to driving. I'm not seeing a need to change things for planning. A realise that might mean defining a "driving GUI" which doesn't really exist yet, as what we have is a small modification on the planning results page. I should preface this with saying I'm using Firefox on Android. Maybe some of these are Firefox-isms. Full screen - Screen real estate is at a premium, yet I've got the address bar locked at the top. It's not going to disappear because that only happens when you scroll down a page which doesn't apply here. I've seen some web-apps go full screen. Could ABRP do this when on the move? Map scale - The default scale seems to be to show the whole trip. This is useful when planning, but isn't very useful when driving as you can't see detail when approaching a charging stop. Could we auto-scale to show the car and the next charging stop? Then as you approach a stop you're getting more and more detailed information about how to find it. The Itinerary aka the top drawer - I personally don't think this needs to be available after planning, but certainly should auto-hide once moving. Buttons - I think it would be good to reassess which buttons are needed and when. I'm finding certain buttons are in the way and some I have to go digging for. The '?' button - It needs to die, at least whilst we're on the move. On a smaller screen it just takes over the whole display, and has lots of hot links which will take you off round the web as you're trying to get rid of it. Zoom buttons - I'm finding pinch to zoom is awful on the web app because it doesn't work if you hit a UI element by accident (e.g. the charger information bubbles). Couple this with trying to do it whilst keeping your eyes on the road, generally because you're approaching the area where you need to find a charger and so need to change lanes to come off the motorway or something. Generally auto-zooming would get rid of most of the need, but a quick tap to zoom in/out would generally be easier. So can we move them out of the dock during driving? Back arrow - Returning to the planner is a pretty devastating thing to hit by accident whilst driving. Can we make this less prominent? Battery adjustment - I like the functionality, but invariably when I'm trying to nudge the battery level up or down I end up selecting the value text in-between the two buttons and getting caught up in cut and paste menus. Is there something that can be done to make all text unselect-able? Maybe make the hot spot for each button overlap onto the text? Night mode - Can we automate it based on local time? User preference if you like. Then lose the button. Centre on car - Make it a "return to default view" button which appears only when user isn't on the default view? Slow charger filter - Only useful for planning? Hide whilst driving. These changes would mean that we're left with only the two zoom buttons most of the time, and a return to default view some of the time. No expandable dock necessary. All of these are my opinions only, so please understand this is all said in a spirit of making ABRP a better tool. I realise there may be good arguments against any of them (including developer time). Thoughts? Alternative suggestions? Developer feedback?

    Description: I've noticed that when you put a charge rate into the waypoint settings (gear icon next to a waypoint), the charging rate is limited by your cars AC charge rate (In my case 11kW). It would be good to be able to say when it's a DC charger that's available at the location, so DC limits are applied instead. Use Case: When a DC charger is not on the map (e.g. it's too new, it's a private company's or it's public and hasn't been commissioned yet) it can be useful to add a DC charger via a waypoint. Currently only AC charging is possible.
