Support for Apple Carplay

Unfortunately, while we've done some work on our side to get prototype support for CarPlay (and Android Auto), we've hit a bit of a wall in trying to get approval (or even a response of any kind) from Apple and Google on our requests to be able to even run the app.

For Android Auto, you would be the first mapping/navigation app to get approval besides Google Maps and Waze (both Google-owned of course). So while I would support your efforts, I also want to make clear that nobody should get their hopes up too much that this will be implemented anytime soon.

Apple Carplay is a bit more likely, there are some navigation apps on Carplay.

The Bolt's MyChevy App can display all the kinds of information we want to for ABRP, so it's not impossible.  They do have some more leverage, as they're also the ones installing AA in their cars.

This is because the Apple Maps API only supports one waypoint at a time (weirdly).  

Its possible to export multi-waypoints at the same time to google maps, at least EVNavigation can do it.

I attach two pictures that shows the route in EVNavigation, and when its exported to Google maps. When I try the same in ABRP, only first stop is exported. Please try to fix this.

I would love if you could put a little effort in it to make it work also with ABRP. Because then I do my EV trip planning in ABRP, export it to Google maps, use google maps in car play to have good navigation in the car.

I would also love if you could implement (if possible) that export also support TomTom app in the same way.

@conny - this is already done on the web version of the app.  Our intention is that if you're in the car following a plan on your phone, it's really only useful to navigate to the next waypoint on the list, as the waypoint following that might change depending on how much you charge, or how the weather or traffic changes in the interim.

The problem with this approach is that  I think waypoints are often added purely to force the planner to calculate based on a specific route.

Please contact Magrethe Vestager at the EU, she is building a case against Apple and Google tageting this issue!

Yeah, this is the real reason you are getting the silent treatment. 
However, there are alternative app stores and ways to get an app on the phone, such as sideloading or one of the app stores that circumvent Apple’s monopoly.

Just get the feature out there and let the world see the benefit of ABRP over the monopolists. It will speak for itself. Despicable how they pose as utopian do-gooders, and then try to sabotage EV apps!
