Accuracy in Canada

I am looking at ABRP and playing with planning trips (using free right now) and I have a couple of questions. 


It seems that ABRP is not up to date with charging stations at Electrify Canada. I know that a station should be rated at 350 KW but ABRP only show a 200 KW charger. Also I have noticed that a lot of the chargers have the grey circle around them since ABRP does not know the status. Is this because:

  • ABRP does not know what is happening in Canada because not a lot of people use it?
  • ABRP has not connected to the various providers here so there is not a lot of data?


My second question revolves about basic vs premium. I have looked at the features in premium and they look good. However, things like real-time status of charges seems to me would not be accurate because ABRP does not even know if the charger is operational. So would the premium package be worthwhile? 


So far I really like what the app can do for me, but I am somewhat worried about the above items.

Hi @Goran,

At the moment we get data about chargers from a few different open source databases as well as the charging networks themselves. This means that the data about some chargers is entirely provided by users who update the database. 

If you find that the data about a charger is incorrect you can get in touch with us, or change it yourself directly in the database. Click on a charger on the map to open the charger's menu. Click Actions > Edit in [database name] to open the charger's entry in the database. Any submission made to one of the databases will be updated to ABRP within 24 hours.

Currently we only get live data about some charging network. Among others Tesla, Ionity, Allego. Please note that we're continuously working to add more charging networks. If a charger is labelled as "Operational" for non premium users, that means that we get data about the availability of the charger which premium subscribers can take part of.
