  1. Belated thanks, Steve. Sorry I hadn't gotten back to you earlier, thanks again for the effort!
  2. For some reason, the ABRP interface leaves me absolutely flummoxed. Is there a step by step guide how to set up and use ABRP? I have two Tesla Model 3 SR+. Last time I looked, in the setup it asked for the Miles/KWH figure. Now I see a 4. ??? What is this? I want to occasionally set for a 100% SOC when starting out. Can't change it from 90. Seems to me I used to... I want to plan/check a route other than what ABRP suggests (side trip, see if I can make it from X to Z without stopping at Y, things like that. But half the time, the search function comes up with a location totally different. Like a different state or even a different name. I have ALMOST gotten used to the squirrely behavior when clicking on the map, repositioning or zooming, but can't seem to avoid setting a placeholder that I then can't delete. The U/I doesn't seem to follow mouse navigation standards. (Firefox here). Some days a known route will not plan. I KNOW I can get from A to B to C (superchargers), but then i am told to detour 40 miles out of the way, the system ignores B. It's right on the way! So I delete the plan entirely and re enter it and I MAY or MAY NOT get a different result. And I believe there is some way to create a trip on my computer, and zap it directly into my car's planner, but it certainly is unknown to me. Yes, I know it is "free" software. I would subscribe in a New York minute if I could know it is going to work for me. If I can master that, out comes my credit card. I see you have put in a TON of work on this, and the math must be more complicated than Chinese arithmetic. I thank you for it. But thus far, it doesn't leave me with a warm fuzzy feeling. If I could just figure out how to make it work... I'm old school. I read manuals first. IF there is a manual to read. OBTW, I am a Die Hard Android / PC user. No Apple / Mac hardware here. It it's an Apple/Mac only thing, then I won't bother you again. Thanks for listening, -- Doc
  3. 'Nuff said! Thanks for clearing that up...
  4. I just noticed I had not expressed my thanks for those tip in reply to my post, so: Thanks Very Much for your help! One last thing - what happened to the satellite view that was on an earlier version?
  5. ABRP reports the Alexandria, Louisiana, USA Supercharger as having issues, and will not use it in calculations. I checked with Tesla and they report no issues, and its website reports no issues. Who is right?
  6. Hmmm... I guess I never tried it. I hate icons. I learned to read years ago. Thanks for the info!
  7. Wonderful! Thanks so much for the speedy reply! -- Doc
  8. How do you get back to the Classic version, if you please? I've looked all over and don't seem to be able to find it. The current version I am sure cost the developers a lot of time, but I find it really unintuitive, confusing, and without SOME kind of function/command/help list, deem it pretty well unusable. Thanks in advance, -- Doc
  9. Why can I never get a response to my questions? I'm trying once again. This software seems to be a good idea, is the result of a massive amount of programming, but it is such a moving target as to make it unusable. 0) How do I revert to the "Classic" version. The current UI is just plain unusable. 1) Can't delete the location pointer which appeared with a right click' 2) How do you select from the two or three routes proposed on a given trip 3) How do I see the trip as a list displayed over the map as in the old version 4) Fighting the entry for departure SOC and time and the superfluous drop down menus are silly 5) Never yet figured out how to send a trip created on my laptop to either of my Teslas 6) What happened to the satellite view as in the original version? 7) I would send payment as support in a heartbeat if I knew that you would create a stable version
  10. Where are you from? North Texas What car do you drive? Tesla Model 3 What's the longest trip you've taken in your EV? DALLAS - EL Paso
  11. Everything seems to have been fixed in the next update or two. Working fine, now. Thanks!
  12. I'd like to join in on this one. It would be nice if we could set the departure charge for individual stops. Sometimes we know we need a little more in the tank for various reasons we might encounter.
  13. ABRP appears to try to to minimize charging time. Once I have determined a route, it would really be nice to be able to set the departure charge at individual stops. There may be conditions along the way which would make me want to charge more or less at certain stops, or for comparison. e.g., ABRP suggests charging to 65% at a certain stop. I'd like to change this to 85%, and see what time penalties would incur, and then see the effect on the rest of the trip. I haven't the foggiest idea how you are doing the calculations, or if this might be possible, but this would be a great feature in my book. I've been playing with this for weeks, awaiting the delivery of my new Model 3 this week. Can't wait to try it out.
  14. I have resorted to using PrtScr (Windows Key + PrtScr key) to create a picture. I don't speak MAC, but presumably there is a similar option.
