Bizarre Routing options

Recommended Posts

Description: 2 Waypoints entered, both charging stations. Instead of routing the obvious 30 km drive ( https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/45.1932941,-67.2748661/45.08188,-67.05898/@45.0788159,-67.0707586,14.37z/data=!4m2!4m1!3e0 ) the program gives 2 choices for routes that are either 171 or 245 km to get there. Noticed it as part of a longer plan where it first tried to route me past and back so I selected "do not charge" at the closer chargers that it first tried to route me through.
Replication Steps:
  1. Run several times deleting the St. George (non existant) and Point Lepreau chargers from the routing and it just won't find the direct route.
  2. Also ran on mobile, same results.

Sounds like the same problem as https://forum.abetterrouteplanner.com/topic/184-unnecessary-charge-is-used/

Hmm, I'm starting to see a pattern here.  I wonder if this has to do with a solution we implemented not too long ago for a longstanding problem.  Essentially, we used to get occasional 0-length (or very short) charging stops, and we implemented a fix to stop those from happening, but these all seem to have the same features as those routes used to have.  Definitely something to investigate!

Thanks! The issue was that the new generation planner tried to avoid chargers which were too close - and we forgot the case where the chargers are waypoints 🙂

Now fix.ed.
