  1. Good to know . . . but shouldn't the goal be to make waypoints as flexible as the mapped quick chargers? I haven't used the feature yet so now I am making an assumtion, but I noticed when I left click a mapped quick charger on the ABRP map there is an option for a, "Take a long break here." Giving a waypoint equal functionality would be very useful to those of us not yet possessing a Tesla, i.e. not having access to adequate charging infrastructure. A checkbox added to the "Waypoint Options" popup to make the users intentions clear would do very nicely!
  2. Description: Mismatch between Planned Speed/Distance/Energy Available Link to Plan: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=d6066f35-835d-4bea-90da-e9ee02d97799 Replication Steps: Description: Planned journey of 99 miles, with a net loss of 2100' of elevation, driving a Chevrolet Bolt starting with 88% charge (49.1 Kwh with degradation), planned consumption of 27 Kwh, Slower If Need box checked, and the planned Arrival charge exceeds my set Arrival Charge Goal . . . but (see attached screenshot of map) about 2/3s of the journey is planned at 37 mph in a 65 mph speed zone, and the map shows a solid blue line, not red with a warning of a planned reduced speed. The calculation is not exact, but approximates mixing kph and mph values for the non-freeway portion of the journey??????
  3. I've been using the tool for several days (so much I felt compelled to make another contribution!) planning a route through the mountains between Salt Lake City, UT and Denver, CO. In a Chevy Bolt, I must select charging waypoints that include L2 and even campground RV outlets to make it. I managed to avoid most problems, but did note that if I add a charger isn't recognized by ABRP as a waypoint the charging times are not added to the summary line at the bottom of the route plan. See attached. Trip 4B Specs.pdf Trip 4B.pdf

    Waypoint Routing Error

    I suggest flagging the situation by highlighting the offending SOC percentages in red, and maintain the current text in red informing the user that a lower speed is necessary to complete that leg of the journey while eliminating the zig zag route plan. Now that I know the cause of the problem, I can avoid it, but it certainly would help even newer users to avoid the same confusion. Thanks for all your work! It is a wonderful tool.
  5. Description: Level 2 charging waypoint added to break up a long distance between Level 3 chargers (points A and C) backtracks. Routing starts at point A, I added an intermediate L2 charge at point B, Router then returns to point A, then goes to point C, instead of going from A to B to C. Link to Plan: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=ee88fa28-c658-46ab-8f85-0c7172b8c78d Replication Steps: Walmart 402 Breaux Bridge [Electrify America] (point A) to 7529 Corporate Blvd, Baton Rouge, LA 70809 (point B) to Walmart 402 Breaux Bridge [Electrify America] (point A) to Gulfport Premium Outlets [Electrify America] (point C) I entered 88% charge to see what the planner did, in hopes that I would be able to adjust the percentage downward and minimize the time on a slow Level 2 charger. I never got to that point. Remember, the more detail you can provide in your bug report, the faster we can fix it! Waypoint Routing Error Map PDXBob.pdf Waypoint Routing Error PDXBob.pdf
  6. Description: Quick Charger Planned Time Extremely Long Link to Plan:https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=5ae59ec1-24d3-45c4-879b-b29408196ae1 Replication Steps: Replication Steps If applicable Planning a cross continent trip with my Chevy Bolt. I noticed that the line circled in the trip plan (see attached Casey's Salina (Salina, KS) [Electrify America]) has an extremely long charge time of 5:45 hours and a $74 cost listed. I recompiled several times on my PC, with the same results. I checked the Electrify America app, and there are no out of the ordinary fees associated with this charging station. I'm a first time user of the program (LOVE IT!), and hope this will help.
