Basic how-to

Recommended Posts

 I may be wrong, but I don’t think there’s a way to do exactly what you want. I don’t see that ABRP can give turn by turn directions like the Tesla app. I like to use ABRP to plan the trip with the way points and the charging, and use the graph of time versus battery from ABRP so I can see If I am on track for battery usage. But to get turn by turn directions I use the Tesla app.  There is a feature of ABRP that allows you to send the next destination to the Tesla app.  That may be the closest you can come to what you want.

I am currently in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada.  We travelled from Toronto to Eastern Quebec for 1 night and then continued our journey to Saint John New Brunswick for 2 nights, then to Moncton NB for 1 night.

We survived Hurricaine Dorian at our hotel in Halifax Nova Scotia, however we are leaving for Charlottetown Prince Edward Island in the morning.  They were hit as well by Dorian.  I was unable to reach the hotel, however received confirmation a short time ago that the hotel just had power restored.  I will only be charging at the hotel on Ac power as they don't have a level 2.  

I tried to send the abrp to my Tesla navigation, but it does not work.  abrp says I should charge at the last supercharger in Aulac New Brunswick and I should arrive with 70%.  I can make it without supercharging but I want to have a buffer as there are no superchargers or level 3's in PEI.

I have not yet taken delivery of my Tesla so bear with me please. I see that I can use ABRP to add waypoints to my journey but I understand the Tesla sat nav doesn't allow this. Therefore how do I use the data in ABRP to achieve turn by turn navigation including waypoints. I can do this in Google Maps but I am trying to avoid using lots of different pieces of software.

Congrats on your new Tesla!

The way we work around that is we have a function so you can send the destinations one-by-one to the car.  When on a trip you can click "Share > Tesla Nav" to send the next step to your car (whether it's a supercharger or any other waypoint).

Happy to hear you made it out of Dorian!

If I understand you correctly, sending the ABRP next destination to Tesla nav does not work? In what way? Sometimes the Tesla nav and ABRP will have different views on things (like the need for charging) and then things will get confusing, but we cannot do much about that.

Thanks for that. I assumed it was just superchargers but if waypoints go as well then that's the problem sorted. I like ABRP anyway but now it will be my nav of choice. Just need Elon to add browser abilities to the Model SR+ and I'll be sorted.
