  1. Great!! Clearly, I mis-read the results. Thanks for the prompt help. Next question is about sharing to Tesla the next charging stop. I'm not sure it's letting the car know this stop is a CHARGER; seems to be just an address to go to. So the car might not know to pre-condition for charging. Am I wrong? Thanks!
  2. I realize now I could have figured at least some of this out for myself. By changing the temperature in ABRP, I now see that it changes the trip wh/mile in the expected way. Another question: on a proposed trip, ABRP has me charge to 67%, then stop at 10% and charge to 24% before the last leg. I figured this additional charge stop was to save time; but when I forced ABRP to leave out that short stop and charge to 81% before the last leg, the trip duration was reduced by a few minutes. Why the preference to make that Supercharge to 67% instead of 81%; better for the battery? https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=d392a2f7-6af4-43d8-bc79-1a7c530ac7e6
  3. Great, thanks! I was going overboard and decreasing my efficiency AND entering low expected temp. And putting too much time for charge opening port... Thanks for the app, it's great.
  4. Please explain, does ABRP take ambient temperature into account, or do I need to do it myself via the wh/mile efficiency parameter? And, does the minutes to open charge port take into account time to AND from the charging place, to get back on the route? Ie suppose it takes 12 minutes total wasted time to go to and from a Supercharger and get back on highway; should I enter 12 or 6? Thanks.
  5. I may be wrong, but I don’t think there’s a way to do exactly what you want. I don’t see that ABRP can give turn by turn directions like the Tesla app. I like to use ABRP to plan the trip with the way points and the charging, and use the graph of time versus battery from ABRP so I can see If I am on track for battery usage. But to get turn by turn directions I use the Tesla app. There is a feature of ABRP that allows you to send the next destination to the Tesla app. That may be the closest you can come to what you want.
  6. Wanted to mention - ABRP was not correctly "remembering" my ABRP login, on my Tesla browser; I had to re-enter my login info every time. I seem to have fixed this problem, by correcting my saved Tesla browser "favorite" for ABRP. I thought I had saved the ABRP web address as a favorite, but it turns out, what I had saved was the address of a particular plan/ID. Somehow that was not working correctly. I managed (not sure just how) to save as a favorite, just the plain ABRP address, abetterrouteplanner.com, and now it works; it remembers my ABRP login, and thus my saved plans, etc. without me having to log in again. Yay!!
  7. The saved credentials work fine on browsers other than my Tesla Model S browser. I have been thinking that the in-car Tesla browser just doesn't allow cookies or something, so it's can't remember my credentials. Am I wrong?
  8. Do you have to log in using your ABRP user/pwd every time, to correctly see your saved plans (including the one you're currently driving on, when you stop the car for a while and come back)? If so, that can be kind of a burden - Tesla browser does not seem to save any login info, so you have to type it in each time? Maybe I can change to have much shorter ABRP login info to make it quick and easy. It does know/remember by Tesla login, but not the ABRP part. It DOES seem to remember a bunch of saved plans, but I can't get it to remember the ones I want it to. If I don't log in with ABRP credentials, there are saved plans there - and even if I delete them all, they keep coming back...
  9. My "Sync Problem" is not a problem anymore... Not sure why it seemed like a problem before. Now I see my plans on all sorts of devices - iPhone, Linux, Kindle, laptops. This app makes no attempt to give you turn-by-turn directions, right? That might be nice, but I can use the regular Tesla Nav for that. One thing that is great about this app is how you can configure it, with the efficiency, reference speed, top speed, etc. Lots of flexibility. I love the waypoints, the round-trip planning, how you can configure waypoints for how much charge you will start with, the charger power at the waypoint (so you know how long you need to stay there before proceeding with your trip). This way if you use destination/RV camping charging up to 100%, it takes it into account. This is quite a fun and helpful app. I donated a bit, and encourage others to do it too.
  10. Making progress. I've found that with the new Chromium browser, ABRP doesn't seem to work well on full-screen in my Model S. On the default 1/2 screen, it's working better. Not sure why this would be, and full screen would be nice, but I can live with the default 1/2 screen. I now log in and I see my saved plans!! And I was even able to click the "accept cookies" box. Looking a lot better!!
  11. Where are you from? Atlanta GA What car do you drive? 2018 Model S 75D What's the longest trip you've taken in your EV? Atlanta to Philadelphia round-trip Hi. I love this app, but synchronization is not working for me. I log in with my username (same as my login for this forum), and I don't see plans I created on another device. I'm wondering if it has to do with cookies. In my Tesla, there's a button for me to click, on the ABRP screen, to authorize the use of cookies, but nothing happens when I click it. Tesla browser is now much better than it used to be, but maybe Tesla browser doesn't allow cookies. (But synchronization also doesn't seem to work when I switch from a Macbook to a PC laptop.) It sure would be nice if I could plan a complex route, and conveniently access it in my car's browser. Also, when I send the next step of the route to the car, Tesla Navigation doesn't seem to realize that it's a Tesla Supercharger destination. I'm thinking it would be better if it knew that. Like, for making sure the battery is warmed up for charging. But maybe on a long trip, the battery is ALWAYS warm enough, when you get to a Supercharger?? ABRP is so good (for long complex trips) that I don't really even need Tesla Navigation anymore. But it would be great if I could access my pre-planned routes. Please advise...
