  1. What is OVMS. Are you referring to Torque Pro with an ODBII dongle?
  2. I would also see the overnight stay include the option to use the motel's charger to leave with 100% charge. This will almost always be the case when a hotel offers charging as a feature of the stay. We just finished a trip of 2500 miles and used this feature 4 times. ABRP couldn't reflect this and to use it we routed our trip to the motel each time. We then started a completely new trip from the motel except the phone app only did kilometers and couldn't use it. Finally we just printed the screens from ABRP using Microsoft's screen capture tool and printed them as jpeg captures. It works well and we could even print color. It was a lot of work but the trip was a complete success. It just took a lot of planning.
  3. David, My wife and I made almost the same trip in reverse in a Kona EV 64 kwh. I planned the trip with abetterrouteplanner and printed several scenarios. I couldn't use the phone app since it was only in kilometers and didn't want to convert every time I looked for something. Excellent chart you provided. Surprising that several of those chargers were on our radar as possible charge locations. We additionally use plug share to find free and motel chargers. The motel chargers were J1772 and were supplied by the motel for EV's. These were chargepoint and only needed validation and there was no penalty for not unplugging. We also stopped in Chico at the Sierra Nevada Brewery and ate while using their free charger. All in all we had 7 free charges. We also did not use any 19kwh chargers as our Kona can charge up to 76kwh. We did use the 50kwh Chargepoints several times. Interesting after talking to the support staff at Chargepoint, they say the establishment sets the rate for charging. I am going to suggest a feature that allows for overnight 100% charging as it changes the dynamic of the scheduling a lot.
  4. I agree. I prefer the old interface so I can use miles and lbs.
