We have three levels of car model confidence which we use to label the cars in the planner: Alpha - Modeled manually by us, these are generally closely matched to the EPA and WLTP range provided by the manufacturer, but won't be a perfect representation of the car. Beta - Modeled based on some real-world data. Release (no label) - Modeled based entirely on real-world data. Live Data To move a model out of Alpha, we need real-world data, and that's where you come in! The best way to get that real-world data is to use a Live Data connection. The first step there is to check your car against our list of Live Data Support and see if it's already supported. If so, great! Set up Live Data, and once we have enough data we'll promote the model from Alpha. Of course, setting up Live Data also has a ton of benefits for you as a driver as well: We do live calibration of your personal car and account for things like extra passengers, cargo boxes, bikes, and weather automatically You get a live graph and arrival predictions of state of charge while in Driving Mode You get completion estimates while charging and can see charging status And of course, if we don't currently support your car, but you know how to get data from your car we provide an API to connect Live Data with us. Send us an email at email@example.com if you'd like more information about this, and our API Docs are available on our Postman. Testing Procedure If we don't have Live Data support for your car, the other option is using the Trip Odometer. We've prepared a test procedure document you can print out and fill in to provide this data. See the attached "Manual Car Calibration" document. The goal here is to provide a series of data points at a variety of speeds to estimate the efficiency across all speeds. With many tests on different copies of the same car, we can produce a reliable model. Manual Car Calibration.pdf
The ABRP beta site now supports amenity stops! Amenity stops lets you include restaurants, hotels, shops and much more to your plans. This will be a premium feature when released, but we have made it available for everyone to test for now! There are three different ways to search for amenities: 1. Amenity at a waypoint Click the settings icons next to a waypoint. Then select the type of amenity, the filters, how long to stay and hit "Done". This will search for an amenity close to that waypoint and include it on the plan. 2. Amenity search Click one of the three amenity icons above the inputs. Then select the filters, set how long to drive before stopping and hit "Done". This will add an amenity stop after some time driving to your plan. 3. Amenities around a charger You can always check the amenities around a charger. No matter if the charger is part of the plan or not. Just press the charger and browse among the amenity categories. When on the plan output, you can swipe between the amenities around a charger using the left and right arrows. You can also change the amenity charger using the arrows or the circular refresh button on that charger. If you want to add multiple amenity stops, you have to add them one by one. Add your first amenity stop, hit the plan button and choose the amenity on the plan output. Then bo back to the input page. Your first amenity stop will now be plan of the input addresses and you'll be able to add more amenity stops. This feature is still in beta, so all feedback is appreciated. Happy planning!
