  1. Hello, I'm planning a trip from leander Texas to Rockport Beach Texas. When I enter this into ABRP I get this route, which seems fairly reasonable: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=94e5d5ae-e770-4d89-a52b-dce6666f1a2f Total time: 4:26 However I notice that ABRP wants me to charge here to 100% (Yuck!) and I noticed there's another fast charger further south in Sequin, right along my route. If I choose this fast charger the total time goes down: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=65971ead-11c6-4511-8554-ac43f31c9b81 Total time: 4:20 (6 minut
  2. I noticed on the new UI there is this green/gray graphic / indicator next to each stop: However there is no legend or or anything to explain what these various bars/dashes represent. I'm assuming charger availability? But it's not clear at all how to read this thing. I would expect that hovering the mouse over it would bring up some pop up with a legend or explanation, but nope. If I click on that first stop I get another graphic: This looks... somewhat similar to the smaller one on the trip overview... but not really? And still no explanation for what it means. Why
  3. Hi Jason, Given the announcement today, it should be much easier to deal with this right? There's no longer a special pricing model for Kona/Niro drivers. Any EV with 90KW simply pays $0.16/minute or $0.43/kWh (Depending on the state) When do you think ABRP will start factoring in this new pricing? I also noticed that there's no longer a "Total trip cost" listed anywhere that I can find.
  4. Can we submit routes driven with actual energy consumed privately somehow? I'd rather not post my home address (And friends addresses) on a public forum. We drove our 2019 LEAF+ (62 kWh, SL Trim) from North of Austin to North of Houston this weekend: It was a 170 miles total according to Google maps. It took 2 hours and 49 minutes. We left with 100% and arrived with 13% SOC Nissan Connect app says the trip was 167 miles with an average consumption of 3.8 miles/kWh ABRP on default settings said I'd need to keep a max speed of 51 mph (On roads with 70-75 mph
  5. Maps are still not loading for me as of Jan 2nd, even after doing forced refresh several times.
  6. Thanks, I see this now. EA's website doesn't do a good job of making this clear: If you just go to their website and click "Locate Charger" it shows these CHAdeMO's as being available... But if you actually "Log in" to the EA website then suddenly you can see that these stations are down. I actually appreciate that ABRP uses this when planning, but I think there should be a toggle in the settings that lets you plan routes that stop at stations that are currently unavailable because I might be planning a trip that I don't intend to actually disembark on for another several weeks. (IE: Just
  7. I checked OpenChargeMap to see if I could add the missing stations there... but OCM correctly shows the CHAdeMO stations at these locations (See attached screenshots). Why is ABRP not showing CHAdeMO connectors at these locations when they are correctly listed on both Electrify America's website as well as OpenChargeMap? There's also the issue of ABRP always listing the charging cost at $1 for all Electrify America CHAdeMO stops. You can also see that issue in the plan I linked above.
  8. The real challenge for me is it's not just a matter of updating the speed limit in OSM, it usually requires splitting the roads into segments so that your speed limit edit doesn't break a correct limit on another segment. (IE: Someone set the limit to "35" inside a city but the road wasn't segmented so it sets the limit of the rural section to 35 mph as well.) Being able to adjust these directly inside ABRP would certainly be a lot easier.
  9. Is it a known issue when planning routes on the Nissan LEAF that the charge "cost" is always $1.00 at Electrify America stations? See: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=1aca0b42-3d7d-400f-93b1-9c77b27f4318 I've also found the charging time estimates to be *very* optimistic in Texas. Even the 1st charge at ambient temps above 90 degrees are throttled back to 20 kW in our 2019 LEAF 62 kWh.
  10. Looking at plans to the east Coast I see there's an EA station in Chipley, Florida that also appears to be missing.
  11. Description: ABRP is missing the CHAdeMO stalls in Waco, TX, Ozona, TX and Fort Stockton, TX Link to Plan: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=5e9c5746-14cc-4ade-b8fc-93da18125f8b According to EA website as well as PlugShare there are CHAdeMO stalls at the EA locations in these 3 cities but they don't show up when planning routes on ABRP. This causes very poor routes when trying to plan trips in a Nissan LEAF. It seems likely that other cities are affected as well but these are the 3 near me that I've noticed.
  12. I don't really know the point of posting that since I think we all understand that the most efficient speed of an EV is around 25 MPH and I think you understand the point being made: taking a shorter more direct route saves so much energy that it's often hard to justify going to longer route to save just a few minutes of time. Whether it's about total efficiency or not: A shorter more direct route at slightly slower speeds uses considerably less energy than one that goes a lot further to favor faster interstate highways and often doesn't save much time. When I plug these routes into Google map
  13. Most of the major rural roads in Texas which have speed limits ranging from 65 to 75 MPH seem to be classified as "primary road" in OSM which according to your table above would result in a speed reference of 45 MPH. The smaller rural roads which generally have limits of 50-65 MPH are mostly tagged as "secondary roads" in OSM which again according to your table above results in a reference speed of 35 MPH. I think you might need to get more sophisticated than just looking at the road type. For example US-281 in Texas has speed limits ranging from 75 to 35 depending on if it's going t
  14. Hi Jason, I suspected that the speed limits might be wrong but then when I checked the speed limits they were actually correct. It's just the consumption numbers that are wrong. And ironically, the actual battery arrival percentages seem close to correct. So internally it must be doing the right math somewhere but the miles/kWh it's displaying are crazy high. I'm more concerned with why it seems to favor longer routes with higher speed limits to begin with, rather than going shorter routes with slightly lower speed limits. I've had it tell me a few routes were un-workable until I hit
  15. Hello there, I'm trying out ABRP for the first time and I'm noticing that, in Texas USA anyway, that it often takes a longer less efficient route than what might be otherwise possible. I was assuming that a tool like ABRP would choose routes based on distance and elevation gain/loss, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Take this plan for example: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=45ba5eee-ecee-4d93-8be5-7c9dc0dff953 ABRP wants me to go 66 miles, hit Google's route would only take 54: https://goo.gl/maps/3PrECJSoxD2hq2ta8 I'm also a bit flummoxed by the estimate
