Sending Saved Routes to my Phone

Recommended Posts

We don't have a "proper" Android App yet, but we do have a web app you can access by going to the website on your phone and clicking "Add to Home Screen" in your browser.  This works really quite well for me.

Once you're signed in on your phone (Settings > More Settings > Synchronize Settings > ABRP Login, different from the Forum login unless you used the "ABRP Login" option to create your account), you can access your saved plans and run the site on your phone.

My setup is pretty simple, I'll post a blog post at some point with pictures.  I put my phone with ABRP on a magnet mount next to the main screen of the car, and Torque is always running so it autoconnects and starts sending Live Car Data to ABRP then:

  1. Plug the phone in so Android Auto launches
  2. Load up the plan on my phone via Saved Plans
  3. Click "Share to App" from the Share page, which sends the first charge stop to Android Auto

I like using the No-Map / Fullscreen mode for ABRP, which just provides the graph and details, since Android Auto has the map for me, reduces the processor load on my phone.  As you're driving with live data, ABRP will adjust to the actual conditions and offer to replan if you diverge from the prediction for whatever reason.

For the moment, that's the best option.  Every time you plan a trip, it saves those settings to your profile, and you can store variations on that as Saved Plans, and reload them if you like.  In the future, we'd like to offer a "Garage" option, where you can have multiple cars set up, or multiple versions of a car (like with/without a cargo box).

Hello,

I've got ABRP set up as a web app on my iPhone. But how do I actually use it while driving (Tesla 90D)? That's the part I'm not clear on. I am logged in to MyTesla and ABRP in "More Settings". I have the plan I created pulled up in the web app. How does it update once I start driving? Do I have to do anything in the web app to make it update, or will the charging stops and times just update in real time as I drive?

If you're logged into MyTesla through ABRP, it'll automatically detect that you've started driving and show you your progress and predict your arrival charge (and give you other information about the drive).  You'll probably want to have it plan from "My Position" (blank) and click "Use Live Data" to use the data coming from your MyTesla login to plan the route.
