    Max Speed Changing

    As Jason says, this is intentional. Some EVs are just not made to drive fast so we introduced this "recommended max speed" as part of the car models.
  2. This should now be fixed. If the outside temperature is empty, it will first try to fetch it from the car, otherwise revert to default temperature. We will at some point implement weather forecast temperature too.
  3. OCM imports those chargers from NREL, but since NREL does not even contain the charger power (kW), they seem to guess default data, so it may be a little shaky on accuracy. ABRP was a little hard on requiring charger status information from OCM, but I have removed that requirement now, which means that unknown status chargers (from e.g. NREL) will show up as open now. Let us know how it works.
  4. That is kind of a "feature" we were half aware about, but haven't really figured out how to solve efficiently, but we of course understand it is not acceptable. I will add it to our open issue list and try to figure out how to do it. (The issue not is that we cannot just invalidate the plan, that is easy. We want to be able to present other route which work instead.)
  5. OK, fixed that! Now the direct "Tesla Nav" button is only shown in the car browser when logged in with MyTesla - is that better?
  6. Yes, there seems to be a few bugs in both iOS Safari and in Chrome when it comes to offline caching (which is required for a "Progressive Web App", which you can install on the home screen). We have tried to work around this bug now. To be able to load the new version, you may have to go to iOS settings->Safari->Clear web site data.
  7. Thanks for the proposal, I have sent them an email asking for access to the database.

    Delete account

    The Forum and the ABRP accounts are separate (but can be linked). Which one is it you want to delete?
  9. Cool! I just implemented a first version and added a button to the ABRP Share menu if you are logged in with MyTesla. Works, but we need to figure out how to send the lat/lon coordinates instead of an address, and preferably make the Tesla Navigation understand that we mean a specific supercharger. Any input on that is welcome! Right now we send the string "<lat>,<lon> (<name>)" as address, but it seems like the Tesla ignores the lat/lon. Let us know what you think.
  10. Fixed now, thanks for the report!
  11. At ABRP, we work a little bit like a certain EV manufacturer - we release new features and upgrade any time, without much announcement. (Sometimes we break things, too.) However, sometimes it is good to make an announcement of all the things which have happened so that nobody misses the new goodies. Therefore; ABRP 3.7! Next Charger: Press this nifty little button, and you will be given up to five alternatives for your next charger, including how much time each choice will add to your trip. Perfect if you feel like skipping a certain charger, or if conditions change. Or you really need to go to the bathroom. New telemetry/OBD framework: We have updated our way of collecting real-time data for supported car models (which are not always-connected and have an open API like the Teslas). If you want to have real-time car SoC % in ABRP, click Settings->More Settings->Setup to get a guide on how to do. Updated maps: We have updated the maps and changed maps provider. We think they look even better, but let us know if there is anything we can do to further improve. We can definitively change the way they look. New car models: All the new 2019 Teslas are in, including the longerrrr range Model S and X. But also Audi E-tron Sportback, Volkswagen I.D. and many more. and also don't miss that ABRP plans more than 3 times faster than before in release ABRP 3.6!
  12. Allright, I am sure we can solve that as soon as I get 2019.12 myself. Does other sites using positiong work (like TeslaWaze)?
  13. Excellent! Fixed right away, and left me with "why on earth did we ever have that in the code?"
  14. Thanks for the detailed report - should be fixed now!

    Waypoint SOC arrive

    Sorry it took so long, but now that is fixed. Thanks for the report! 🙂
  16. Progressive Web Apps (i.e. storing web pages offline) seems a bit immature on Safari, but we will do what we can to make it work as good as possible. I got the same issue on my phone, but resolved it by going to iOS Settings->Safari->Clear History and Website data. Let us see if it works from now or if it was just a temporary fix.
  17. Thanks for the detailed bug report - it turned out to be a silly mistake by us. Now fixed!
  18. Thanks! The issue was that the new generation planner tried to avoid chargers which were too close - and we forgot the case where the chargers are waypoints 🙂 Now fix.ed.
  19. Sorry for not responding earlier, and great thanks for the specific bug reports! The issue was that the new generation planner avoids chargers which are too close to each other, and we forgot to exclude the case where the chargers were waypoints 🙂 Now fixed.
  20. I don't know if that worked or not, but I will assume that it was at least one component which needed fixing. Now the normal version of ABRP automatically does this for the Tesla Chromium browser. For the technically interested, the User Agent reported from the browser is Mozilla/5.0 (X11; GNU/Linux) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chromium/72.0.3626.122 Chrome/72.0.3626.122 Safari/537.36 Tesla QtCarBrowser
  21. Cool! I have not received this update yet so I cannot debug myself - thanks for helping out! Try https://beta.abetterrouteplanner.com now. It should have resolved that problem - let me know!
  22. New feature - next charger alternatives We just released a new (beta) feature which allows you to see what your next charger alternatives are while driving. ABRP plans are most focused on getting you to your destination as fast as possible, but there are of course other factors which matter in the real world. Pressing "Next Charger Alts" on top of the plan list will give you a pop-up dialog with your top-5 charger alternatives from where you are right now, including how much longer it would take to go for that charger compared to the (time-wise) optimal one. Let us know what you think!
  23. To verify and improve our models we need your feedback. There's many ways we could use help if you actually own one: Drive a plan and compare it to the actual battery used. Drive a plan with the browser active, and update your actual battery percentage in the browser. Contribute data via Tesla API. The best way to improve the data is to provide data directly from the car. For Teslas, we can get data via Tesla's unofficial API. To contribute your data, you can simply log in with your Tesla account on ABRP: Settings ▶ More Settings ▶ My Tesla Login Enter your credentials or Token (We do not store your login credentials on our servers, so you may have to refresh this login in your browser periodically). Select "Share data with ABRP" (This allows us to gather live telemetry while you're driving with the website active in the browser) Select "24h Background Sharing" (This allows us to poll in the background while you're driving, if you don't want to have the browser up in your car) Thanks for providing feedback!
