  1. Both. The trailer adds mass, so it will take more energy to drive up the same hill. Note that you get much of this energy back will you drive down the same hill. Not a lot of extra energy is used on flat and level ground. The trailer adds air resistance, so will take more energy to drive a distance at the same speed. This would be the case even if the trailer had almost no mass. You can find the trailer's "the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR)" from the manufacturer. Finding the air resistance is rather harder, unless you can get a trailer to experiment with. If you have a trailer, find a flat and level (or as close as you can) loop course. Measure your energy use per mile doing a loop with the trailer, and a loop without, both at 65 MPH. Update your settings with a trailer either automatically or with the app for both energy use and weight, and you should find out what to expect driving from Phoenix to Flagstaff.
  2. A change was made to OpenStreetMap yesterday. How long until it shows up in ABRP's map?

    Routing bug

    More crazy routing on the path https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=1ef32fdb-15ba-474f-888d-0d7f1ca94cfd

    Routing bug

    Description: Attempt to climb to Artist Point with charge stops in Bellingham, WA generates a crazy route. Type: Webpage Link to Plan: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=f78c2725-1fcc-4b8b-9a84-dce42a96e48e Replication Steps: Trailer configuration enter route or use link above.
  5. I'd also like to avoid International Borders. In the age of Covid, I can't cross into Canada.
  6. I'm driving an Audi Etron 55 (USA), and would like to be able to plan trips with a trailer. However, the Reference Consumption (Wh/mile) doesn't seem to be tied to the car or the configuration. Using: ABRP (10 days left on free trial) Firefox: 78.0.2 (64-bit) Fedora 31 What I see is that: Set up a standard Audi Etron configuration with 120 pounds added weight and 350 Wh/mile Set a configuration Audi with a 3500 pound trailer and Wh/mile 900 Go back to standard configuration, and it has 350 pounds added weight and 900 Wh/mile. I know I don't have live data (yet), and don't really need that (yet). What I want is to have the configuration have the following independent variables that I can set (at minimum): 1) added weight. A configuration with a trailer has a large added weight associated with the trailer. This should be in the configuration, but perhaps have a separate entry independent of configuration. 2) consumption. The air drag of the trailer needs to be selected with the trailer configuration. 3) Maximum speed. In many places, a vehicle towing has a lower speed limit than a vehicle not towing.
  7. I just had problems like this. Cleared cookies for the site. Now working.
  8. Another example. Why route off I5? https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=73bb1dc2-e6af-4b2d-bbb5-b77f88f5f092
  9. Where are you from? North of Seattle Washington State, USA What car do you drive? Nissan LEAF 2014, 24kWh What's the longest trip you've taken in your EV? 374 km I'm planning to buy a 60kWh LEAF later this year. So I'll be setting up LeafSpy to upload trips. I've used several route planners before, but will need them a lot less with the larger battery! Hello to all of you. Phil
