Full-screen, full-journey elevation/charge map

Recommended Posts

Description: 

I like that you can click on the route to view the elevation/charging map. However, I'd really like to be able to see the full journey (not just each journey segment) and preferably larger. Perhaps this could be a toggle similar to the no-map mode.

In fact, I now wonder if that is what shows when you add real-time information while driving (I don't have an OBD... yet at least!) In which case, perhaps enable the graph for people who don't have an OBD. Obviously it won't show the actual charge line, but it can still show predicted charge and you could use GPS position to indicate how far along the journey you are.

Use Case:

Useful when planning journeys

  • gives a better indication of the relative elevations over the entire journey, whereas the auto-scale for each segment can make judging relative elevation tricky
  • useful for comparing routes as graphs tend to be easier to interpret than tables (in the future, potentially display several saved routes on one map?)
  • useful when journey has multiple stops because can have lots of segments to click on (eg for people like me who cannot afford a Tesla and have ~100km range on the open road!)

Useful when on the road for non-OBD users

  • allows for comparison to predicted charge based on location. Although the charge of the car will not display or be tracked, it would be very useful to know what the predicted charge was at that point to compare to the in-car display

The second part of your request already exists! If you have your phone with the plan open and start driving (assuming you allowed us to access your GPS location) it'll follow the plan and give you a chart of actual vs expected charge.  You can set the Actual charge using the large battery indicator next to the graph and it'll do similar things to having OBD (adjust the plan for actual consumption, suggest replans, etc)

As far as the full plot of the entire route goes, that sounds like a good idea, we'll have to give it some thought on where/how to implement.
