Arrival charge when route has waypoints

Recommended Posts


There's something I'm confused about...

When planning journeys, I often add waypoints to the journey plan just to force a particular route to be followed. I don't intend to stop at those waypoints, but simply drive past them so that I drive the route I want to and avoid certain roads etc.

As far as I can tell, ABRP will show me the estimated 'arrival charge' but this is always the charge at the next waypoint (regardless of whether I intend to stop there or not).

The problem is that I don't care what the SOC will be at the waypoint that I am just going to drive straight past... I would much rather see what the SOC is estimated to be at the next charging stop, or at the next actual destination.

I think ABRP could be improved by allowing the user to select whether a waypoint should be treated as an interim destination or simply as a routing waypoint.

If the user tells ABRP it is an interim destination, then ABRP will show the estimated arrival charge at that point.

If the user tells ABRP it is just a routing waypoint, then ABRP won't show the estimated arrival charge at that point, and will instead use the final destination / next charging stop / next interim destination.

Or, maybe I am doing something wrong when using ABRP in the car??
