Why I don't use the new UI website

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'd like to explain here why I don't use the new website, so hopefully you can do something about it:

- Reading the result is not as simple. A table format is a lot more readable and less space consuming to me than a thin column

- Calculation is slower: calculation time direct comparison with the "classic" version shows that the new version is slower

- When adding the options clicking the cog button, you never know what's been set already until you click

- It does not work as good on smaller screens, like the one installed in the car (model 3), at least for me

- I don't think you can do specific settings for you car per travel

I think you switched to the new version as default too soon.

 

Cheers,

Alessandro

I have to agree with you Alesandro that there is a problem.

When I tried to log in, and I was copying my password very carefully from my little black book.

... ABRP kept coming back Wrong Password.

SO I did a Password Reset and it did that.  The Reset instructions then told to use the New Account to set up the new password, Promising none of my Setting or Saved Plans would be lost.

Well, my settings are missing, can not access my saved routes.

A major inconvenience.  Also I to am finding it slower then old ABRP and in my Model-X it is very very slow to respond.

I have sent an email to Jason, to ask him if he can fix the missing settings and missing Saved Plans.

I am totally baffled at the loss of my password and being forced to do everything.

Additional note:  Reading the other bug reports, I found how to get to the Classic Version.

The Classic version has my settings and saved plans.  The new version does not have my saved settings and saved plans.

Kindest regards, Hugh-SG

How do you get back to the Classic version, if you please? I've looked all over and don't seem to be able to find it.

The current version I am sure cost the developers a lot of time, but I find it really unintuitive, confusing, and without SOME kind of function/command/help list, deem it pretty well unusable.

Thanks in advance,

I found the new format hard to use, so I signed up for $50 subscription - assuming that additional menus or instructions would become available.  No such luck.  The site is marginally usable for plotting a route but nearly useless for comparing two, three, or four EVs.  (I haven't bought a car yet - I expected this site to provide valuable comparison data.  HA!)

Hi @GNICK,

Features included in the premium subscription are listed on the page where one purchases the subscription; 
https://abetterrouteplanner.com/premium/

Premium users do have prioritized access to support and we'd be happy to assist you in understanding the new UI. To contact support as a premium member:
In app: click app icon in top left corner and then click 'tell us what you think'
In web: click app icon in top left/right corner (depends on which side you've placed the menu) and then click 'tell us what you think'.

ABRP is mainly created a tool for planning routes with as many real-life variables as possible but it can absolutely be used for visualizing and comparing routes depending on make and model of vehicle.
