  1. Description: For all examples below, I am using my Windows 10 machine and the web planner. Example 1: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=01259345-e3e7-4bd0-942d-d5abd927a02c I am still struggling with planning an across the country trip from Portland, OR to the Atlanta, GA area. I pulled this example fragment from the overall plan for simplicity. You can see that the planner ignores the Salt Lake City, UT Supercharger at the expense of a much longer charge at Tremonton, UT and reduced highway speeds. THEN, adding Salt Lake City Supercharger as a waypoint knocks the Tremonton Supercharger out and moves the same problems (charge time and highway speed) North. Example 2: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=f559c234-c2d6-4bde-9424-7d64f9869aa5 THEN, restoring Tremonton, UT to the charging plan results in the "Out of the Way" routing to Evanston, WY described in my previous posts, including an substantial number of additional and unnecessary miles. Example 3: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=772fc414-71f5-4f27-8e9d-87f1282962fe Type: Windows 10 machine and the web planner Link to Plan: See 3 links above

    Out of the Way Routing

    Thank you. Let's close this one out and move on to something else. I am opening a new thread with another problem, but with some of the same overtones. Best regards, Bob

    Out of the Way Routing

    Jason, an update since the previous post. I now am seeing the fix you made to the planner (good job!) . . . but I got there in a way that surfaced another bug ;-( The Tremonton, UT Supercharger to Salt Lake City Supercharger started working AFTER I unblocked the Evanston, WY Supercharger. I had set the "avoid" this charger when I encountered the original bug that took me though that location instead of straight to the Salt Lake City Supercharger (with an extra charge and 100+ miles!). So, whatever fix you performed needs to take into account adjacent Superchargers that have been marked "avoid." Best regards, Bob

    Out of the Way Routing

    Sorry Jason, no improvement at this end using my Windows 10 machine and the web. I also discovered a couple other ways it fails; variations on the same theme. ABRP PDX - SLT - 1 Route https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=b689e94f-655e-487d-a876-36121b4d50e2 This route ignores the Supercharger at Tremonton, UT and fails to get to Salt Lake City Supercharger. Manually adding Tremonton as a waypoint, letting the planner fill in charging numbers, results in another "Out of the Way" out of state odyssey (see ABRP PDX - SLT - 2 Route bug). ==================== ABRP PDX - SLT - 2 Route https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=665837ee-b2d4-4a58-8618-386b24f0a58f This is the result after Tremonton is a designated waypoint. I goes right by the Salt Lake City Supercharger to Nevada for a charge, just to come back to Salt Lake City!? Pure speculation on my part, but could there be a corruption in the entries for Superchargers in the region? Especially Tremonton, UT and Salt Lake City, UT. If I just enter my Portland, OR address and my sister South of Atlanta, GA, I get a viable plan, except in this area with these Superchargers. I really hope you can figure this out! I used ABRP to run the same Portland-Salt Lake City-Denver-Atlanta route in my Chevy Bolt last July (THAT was an adventure!) with no problems. I'm really hoping to do the same with the Tesla Model Y, when I get it. Thanks for your help! Bob

    Out of the Way Routing

    Thank you! I was going crazy and started to think it was me. Be very happy to get this one straightened out to continue planning my cross-country trip from Portland Oregon to Georgia. The only other thing I'm waiting for is the model Y 🙂

    Out of the Way Routing

    Just a bit more data. Google Maps shows the same journey from Supercharger to Supercharger at 77.5 miles and 1 hour 10 minutes going down Interstate 15. ABRP plots a journey of 191 miles and 3 hours 9 minutes, with an unnecessary charging session in another state, neither saving time or distance.
  7. Description: Planning a trip from Tremonton, UT Supercharger to Salt Lake City, UT Supercharger as part of a coast to coast trip. It is well within the range of a Tesla Model Y, but the planner plots a route through the Evanston, WY Supercharger! Type: Both app (4.0.9) and web using a Windows 10 machine. Link to Plan: https://abetterrouteplanner.com?plan_uuid=4c1543bb-b4ec-46a8-bc01-84825661390e Replication Steps: Enter Tremonton, UT Supercharger as starting point. Enter Salt Lake City, UT Supercharger as destination. Plan route. Remember, the more detail you can provide in your bug report, the faster we can fix it!
  8. 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!
  9. 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??????
  10. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
