  1. If it reads 14,7kWh per 100km, that would be equivalent to 147 wh/km. Yes, that is the reference speed at 110km/h. In other words, if you were to do a controlled test, you would measure your consumption at 110km/h and that is what you would plug in to ABRP. My guess is that your car is reporting it's overall efficiency over all trips and speeds, so it's not going to be super accurate, but maybe a good starting point. Obviously if you can get live data to ABRP it will give you much better predictions. Alternatively you can give it a go with the 147 and then manually tweak it up or down based on how well it predicted an actual trip that you took. Did you arrive at chargers with a higher SOC than ABRP predicted? Then lower the wh/km (you are using less energy per km than ABRP predicted you would). If you arrive at chargers with a lower SOC, then raise the wh/km.
  2. When running ABRP in my Tesla browser, I never paid much attention to the navigation map because frankly it wasn't that usable or it was very laggy. On a recent trip, however, and maybe it's the "lite" version, I found that the navigation map looks like it could be usable, and with the "Detailed Mode" data on the left side of the screen, I'm very happy to give it a shot. However, I could not figure out how to get the navigation out of "North Up" mode, which frankly, again puts the navigation map into the unusable category for me. When driving, I really need to see "Heading Up" mode so I can avoid having to do the mental arithmetic to figure out intersections when I'm on a non-north heading. For a route overview, North-Up is okay (and even preferred). But while in a drive, Heading-Up is the more appropriate display paradigm. I the "Mode" popup, I see buttons labeled "North" and "Rotate", but pushing these buttons did not seem to have any effect. Should they have done something to the navigation display? How can I get the map to display in Heading-Up mode while in driving mode?
  3. Description: On a trip this past weekend, the Tesla in-car browser kept crashing while running ABRP. It would work fine for 5-10 minutes and then the browser would apparently crash. I don't recall that there was any specific incident or activity that caused the crash. I just had the web page up as usual and then eventually I would look over and the web browser would be gone. I was running 2021.24.11 in the car (US Model 3) at the time. I repeated the exercise of bringing up the web browser and getting back into ABRP repeatedly, until I finally tired of doing that and only did so a few times as I was approaching the next charging stop so I could check on Supercharger status. On the return trip I didn't even bother with that. Type: Web page: abetterrouteplanner.com/lite as instructed by the full site when I first brought up the page. Eventually I set a bookmark for the lite version an just went directly to that. Link to Plan: N/A Replication Steps: Get into ABRP while on a drive (with a planned route) Wait about 5-10 minutes (without actively using the site) Web browser crashes and disappears from the screen.
  4. On my app, I use the MODE button to put it into Detailed mode, and then the top row of the detailed display shows Planned SOC and Current SOC. There are DOWN and UP arrows to the left and right of the Current SOC that you can use to adjust the current SOC manually. You do have to be in trip mode though, and not just looking at a proposed plan.
  5. Don't you just need to log back in to the app?

    When running EVNotify, you should enable it to run in the background. To do that, go to the Settings menu in EVNotify and click the version number at the bottom of the menu 10 or so times. This will bring up an advanced menu, and you want to set BACKGROUND_MODE to on. Of course that menu specifically tells you to ignore what I told you to do! But this setting keeps EVNotify running in the background so it continues to get data from the car (and feed it to ABRP).
  7. Hard to say...I recently joined the beta so I could try out the AA interface, so I just re-installed the app anyway. I should note that while in metro areas we get pretty good cell reception, along the highways that we travel we sometimes get little to no signal, so having the app stack (from EVNotify to ABRP) be somewhat resilient to little to no signal is helpful.
  8. I did not know it would automatically share the next waypoint/destination. Very cool!
  9. No, and I suspect even if one existed, with the pace of changes taking place, it would pretty much be out of date.
  10. Sure, but only at a waypoint, not a destination. Using the gear icon, fill out the Charge section. You can either put in the number of hours you will be there, or just set it to charge TILL 100%. You do need to set the charging power though--it doesn't work if you leave that part blank. If you also fill out the departure time, it should even be smart enough to take that into account to make sure you get your 100% SOC by the time you depart, possibly adding or extending a charging stop prior to arrival to make sure that you arrive with enough SOC to charge to 100% by your scheduled departure time.

    You don't install ABRP on your Model Y, you use it in conjunction with it. Most either run it on their phone/tablet, or on the car's web browser if you want it on your console display. You can link your Model Y with ABRP, which does enhance your experience. Basically you give ABRP permission to access your Model Y's telematics data so that it can get live SOC, consumption and charging data from the car. This improves and confirms ABRP's state of charge predictions.
  12. As a followup, we successfully returned from our trip, and yes, having the OBD2 dongle and EVNotify made it SO much easier! It did take me awhile to realize that I had to use the "secret" setting of EVNotify to keep it running in the background, but once I did that, it was more or less smooth. I did occasionally have to restart EVNotify or ABRP to get them to communicate, but most of the time it just worked. We did have a few glitches with charging stations along the way, but having live data and ABRP let us travel with confidence that we would at least make it to the charging stations. This definitely is a must-have tool for EV drivers.
  13. Use the "Share" icon in the app to share it with your Tesla app which then should forward it to your car. I believe it only shares the next waypoint/charging stop as the nav system does not handle waypoints. But that's good enough to get you to your next stop, and then you can repeat once you start the next leg.
  14. Is that your personal setting? I.e. have you selected "Avoid this charger?" Try clicking on the icon to bring up that Supercharger and then under Actions, make sure you select "Allow this charger". I suspect you previously selected "Avoid this charger".
  15. I just tried it, and I was able to right click in a web browser, and simply point and click on my phone to drop a pin, and when you do either of those it gives you the option of adding a waypoint. There is also something called a "Guidepoint" that you can add. I'm not sure what the functionality of that is and how it differs from a waypoint. I suspect that the road at least has to be on the map in order for it to route you to it, but I think the functionality is there. I was able to find (I think) a set of unnamed roads (simply referred to as "85925, AZ" in the step-by-step) and was able to set it as a waypoint/destination.
