Likely you need to clear your browser cache (for just this site).

That fix *kinda* worked. Still took nearly a minute to go from a blank page to a planned route, which is ridiculous.


So I'm with Crash, ABRP is TERRIBLE! Like, makes me want to punch babies terrible. 


To be fair, I've been using ABRP since I bought my BMW i3 2 years ago, and it's always worked great; until now. It's been several months since I've needed to plan a route, so imagine my surprise when I came back yesterday to find something that looks totally different, with a terrible GUI, that won't work on my phone. I tried it in my browser first, and then downloaded the new app; It just doesn't work. To give you an example of what I mean by it doesn't work: I was planning a route that was right at the limit of my range, and instead of having me stop at a charger on the way (I would be passing several), it just lowered my top speed. So, I increased my minimum arrival SOC, and it just decreased my top speed again....all while driving right past several CCS fast chargers!! I finally got it to stop at a charger when I reduced my departure SOC to 80%. This is ridiculous. I had better results today from my laptop, but it required a visit to these forums to get it to work, and it was slow AF. I will be actively looking for an alternative to ABRP, even if I have to pay for it. 


How disappointing.

The new UI is still being rapidly changed as we build it out.  We definitely value feedback (send us emails with the big "Tell us what you think" button, we'll address it as fast as we can).

While we're working on making the new UI better, you can always use the old one at https://abetterrouteplanner.com/classic

It won't have any of the new features (live weather, live trafffic, etc), but we plan to keep it available forever.
