    ABRP 3.5.2 Release Notes

    ABRP 3.5.2 - Better Driving Mode and Offline Web App - And Faster Planning Today we have released ABRP 3.5.2 with major planning speed improvements, especially for new not-recently-searched routes. Even the rather slow (in many aspects) Renault Zoe plans reasonably fast for shorter routes. ABRP 3.5.1 came with a lot of improvements, as usual. Major focus of this release is to improve the experience in driving mode and offline/limited connectivity support The mission of A Better Routeplanner is about meeting two needs Planning, preparing, estimating the time, and generally dreaming of future trips, at home or on the road in your favorite browser Driving and getting feedback on how it goes, how your compare to the plan, ensuring that you will safely make it to the next charger - or replan if needed The ABRP driving mode addresses the second point above by providing real-time status based on your position compared to the plan, with optional car real-time car status based on optional MyTesla login (for Tesla owners) or OBD data (for some EVs). Web App with Offline Support ABRP is now supporting Chrome's and Safari's ability to allow a web app to work offline (a.k.a "PWA" - progressive web app). This means that ABRP will continue to display your latest plan and map even offline and even if you do not use it for a while. In Android and Chrome, you will be asked to "Add ABRP to the home screen", which means it will appear like any app in your app drawer. The same thing can be done by adding it to your home screen in Safari. This also means that ABRP works in full screen! The offline support does not include planning new routes, though, as this requires help from our servers! Let us know if there is more offline functionality you would like to have. Map-less Mode In ABRP 3.5 we introduce map-less full screen mode for those of us who know the way anyway, or use a second navigation system such as Waze in parallel to ABRP. The map-less driving mode is also lighter on the browser, which makes it more enjoyable in e.g. the Tesla browser. You can switch back and forth between the normal map mode and map-less any time you want by clicking the map icon: You can also click the "frame" button on top of the driving display while driving: Have fun planning and driving! Give us your feedback on the ABRP forums or on Twitter @Routebetter!

    Alpha Feedback - BMW i3

    It took far too long, but now we have the 120 Ah models in ABRP too.

    ABRP for charging monitoring

    Yes, we could definitively do this - all technical functionality is there. I'll add it to our TODO feature list!

    More data in overview grid

    If you click the small settings icon next to the starting point input field, you will get a window where you can enter a departure time. This will show the calendar times of arrival and departure for all stops. Does that solve your problem?

    ABRP for charging monitoring

    Ah, I see. So basically you'd want a popup or something saying "Charging almost done?"

    Charging time

    You have a point. We measure the charge curves on reported charging power from the Tesla API, but there is likely some inefficiency between ingoing power and outgoing power. Normally, the Li-Ion batteries should be very good at charging efficiency but the cooling done by the car itself probably consumes part of that power. In the ABRP release later today, I have added an inefficiency factor to the charging time calculations internally (there is no parameter for the user to set), which I think improves the situation.

    Navigation error

    Thank you very much for reporting this, and so sorry for the slow response! It is now fixed by adjusting the coordinates of those chargers.

    "Time to open charge port" in route plan

    I agree to certain extent, it is kind of part of charging. At the same time, we don't want to bolster the charging times to make it look like EVs charger slower than they actually do (to avoid putting EV beginners off). So for now, it will remain part of driving time.

    Adding Tesla account credentials

    We know that the Tesla credentials are very important to keep to yourself, and we have designed ABRP to keep things as private as possible. We never store your MyTesla password, only the token generated by Tesla. This is stored in browser local storage (like cookies), and not on our servers. If you tick "36h background sharing" we will remember your token in server memory (never on disk) for 36h to track your car and share statistics with ABRP. Hope that helps!

    Temperature and road conditions not saved

    Sorry about the slow response, but yes indeed, there was a bug preventing those from being loaded. Now it should work as intended!

    Plan error since 23 or 24 dec

    That was easy, a division by zero caused by a charger which was marked as having maximum current of 0 amps. Now that should not be a problem again.

    Plan error since 23 or 24 dec

    Hello Barry, I'm sure there is a bug hidden somewhere. There are no limitations on numbet of chargers whatsoever. If you can give the exact settings causing the problem I will have a look and fix it. Edit: Just realized I didn't look closely enough at your first post. I will try to replicate it from there.

    Preferred charging networks/operators

    Thanks! I think I found it now looking into your settings. The settings are always stored in the browser local storage (like cookies, but not cookies). If you are logged in with an ABRP account they are additionally stored with your account on our server.

    Preferred charging networks/operators

    Are you logged in to ABRP (with an ABRP account)? If so, PM me the email you use for login and I can have look what goes wrong!
  15. Bo (ABRP)

    Preferred charging networks/operators

    Yes, they are stored, but only after you plan a route using those settings (settings are saved once you press "Plan"). Let us know if it still does not work!
