Description: When a route includes a ferry connection, ABRP uses the distance of the ferry route as part of the range calculation. This can result in routes not being found for short range vehicles. Link to Plan: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=aba9bef8-b356-43f0-95e9-5147b91e5a36 Replication Steps: See the link as shown above. Note it includes an 8 km land route, a 436 km ferry route then another 8 km land route. Vehicle used is a Tesla Model S 2012-2018 85D. The route plans correctly. Change the vehicle from an 85D to a 75D. The route does not plan correctly - no routes found. This route should be able to be calculated even with (e.g.) a Nissan Leaf 24kWh. Note that vehicle SOC calculations are correct. The distance is "cancelled out" with the next step (distance is shown as "-428 km") so the total trip distance is correct.
Description: Please provide separate options for "Avoid Ferries" and "Avoid Car Trains" Use Case: I use Eurotunnel regularly. I do not want to use ferries. While "Avoid Ferries and Car Trains" does still route via Eurotunnel, it is not intuitive - it would be cleaner to have them as separate options.
I planned a route today, using a ferry. Actually it's not a ferry, but a tunnel train, carrying cars. The "ferry" is offered to be added to the route, when right-clicking, so that seems to work. But it only works one way, see these 2 routes: A) West to east direction: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=46711838-f5fd-41b3-8f95-04390931c892 B) East to west direction: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/?plan_uuid=e46dde3e-a33f-4384-a58e-c008ad914926 As you can see route A does not use the tunnel train completely - instead it turns around at the end and then takes the route over the mountain pass (which will be closed in winter very soon). But route B does use the tunnel train correctly. That's really strange... I think either the issue is in the map data or in the route planning algorithm...
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.
