Hello there, I'm trying out ABRP for the first time and I'm noticing that, in Texas USA anyway, that it often takes a longer less efficient route than what might be otherwise possible. I was assuming that a tool like ABRP would choose routes based on distance and elevation gain/loss, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Take this plan for example: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=45ba5eee-ecee-4d93-8be5-7c9dc0dff953 ABRP wants me to go 66 miles, hit Google's route would only take 54: https://goo.gl/maps/3PrECJSoxD2hq2ta8 I'm also a bit flummoxed by the estimated consumption of 4.69 miles/kWh... Under settings is lists the "reference" at 3.33 miles/kWh at 65 mph. These roads all have speed limits of 65, 70, or even 75 mph. So the average consumption should be *less* than 3.33 mi/kWh yet somehow it's estimating nearly 4.7? -Jeremy
Description: Ability to select Eurotunnel or ferry for crossing the English Channel Use Case: I live in the UK, so any European road trip involves crossing the English Channel. At the moment it seems quiet random about which method it takes, ferry or train. Even adding a waypoint to the exit of the preferred method when the non-preferred method is given just diverts the route from the current given method. E.G. the route given gives the ferry but I’m actually getting the Eurotunnel. Putting in Coquelles as a waypoint just diverts me via road from the ferry port in Calais to Coquelles, leaving the crossing method as ferry, rather than changing the crossing to Eurotunnel. I would use this feature every time I planned a route on abetterrouteplanner as I’d almost exclusively use the site for European road trips.
I was wondering if there is a way to exclude a suggested charging place and include another in a planned route. Or do you just have to select the ones you want to use as waypoints before you create a plan? It would have been nice to exclude known problem chargers and have the route being refreshed with alternative charging place(s). Example: Wanted route: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=77d16cc6-a781-4e65-9b9c-351129745b3b Suggested route from ABRP: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=2e0713df-345e-4f32-9c74-f03ee58ecf3d Any comments?
