Keeps Freezing

2
What I find interesting about this app is when I didn’t purchase the premium subscription, it worked better. After I paid 49.99/yr for whatever the reason the app keeps crashing and freezing when I try to plan my routes. I’m using an iPhone 13 Pro and I’d expect better results. There’s no way I can justify keeping this subscription for something that crashes this often. Granted, the desktop/direct website works well, but isn’t of any help if you don’t have a Wifi hotspot/or enough hotspot data on your iPhone.

Works, but strange UI problems

I have a 22 VW ID4, the screen while driving is always offset to the left. My car direction is shown on the left 1/3 of the screen, and the speed limit sign is half off screen.

Let Down By Awful UI and frequent hangs

1
The functionality is amazing, and the routes are well done, but the UI is absolutely terrible. Its a confused mess of settings and options, hidden buttons, and meaningless options. The entire experience is frustrating to the point where you just want to throw the aop away. Right now the app tells me it has live data but the data is wrong, while the web app tells me it DOESNT have live data but the data it has is correct. Good UI takes complex information and makes it simple to understand and work with. This app does the exact opposite. Very sad. UPDATE the latest version now hangs every time it computes a route on my iPhone. Downgraded to one star.

This needs to be much better

I guess it just uses a data collection system to suggest routes and charges. The problem is that chargers are constantly up and down. Meaning it needs to CHECK if the charger is actually working. Day one it sent us to a charger that was being upgraded (for the last month). Then sent me to a charger that was on a turnpike (which took 22 miles to turn around. Will be deleting this app today. Total fail. Better? No not even close.

This app is a mess

1
I almost never write reviews on iOS apps, but I’m making an exception here because this app is that much of a mess. The route planning isn’t even working. If you enter a destination, it basically draws a straight dotted line between the starting point and destination, and that’s it. It’s like it doesn’t even try to route your trip, let alone factor in EV charging like it’s supposed to. There’s what appears to be a button in the bottom right corner, but it does nothing. Maybe it’s just a logo? I thought maybe something was up with my account (or maybe it requires a pro subscription?) and/or something going on with the app specifically. So I tried logging into their website to try there and rule it out. However, their website isn’t accepting my login (even though I use 1Password, and see that I’m logged into the app with the same email). I tried resetting my password, and never get an email, as if I’m not registered with that email (even though it shows in the app as being logged in). The UX, when it does work, is also a hot mess. I could list all the problems I’ve had with it when it did work, but that’s been too long ago, I can’t remember them. I downloaded this after hearing recommendations from the EV community, but I’ll stick to just looking up chargers on other apps, like PlugShare, ChargePoint and Electrify America, and will be telling others to avoid this app.

Great app but has performance issues on iOS 16

This is the best app for EV route planning. Currently is having issues with crashing and freezing on iOS 16 though.

Route planning is amazing. In-car navigation needs a LOT of work

3
I really want to like this app. The route planning flexibility it offers is second-to-none. Unfortunately, it all falls apart when you’re actually out on the road navigating the planned route. Frustrating glitches make the entire experience untrustworthy, especially when using CarPlay with live SOC data. It will often report weird SOC values, pop up alerts for faster routes that don’t exist, get confused on when you’re charging, and on and on. If you are patient, you can make it work, but it’s just frustrating trying to figure out what’s going on while you’re on the road. I think the developers really need to focus on getting the CarPlay and live SOC experience to a more reliable state. Also, it desperately needs support for CarPlay Dashboard.

Now the most reliable and powerful EV planner

In recent years I have encountered little to no issues. The UI is intuitive and the routes are planned well. ABRP is the de facto standard app for planning a route in your EV especially if you’re away from your in-vehicle navigation! I am confident they’ll continue to update and improve this service. Side note: my favorite feature is the list of restaurants within close proximity to the charger on my route! So underrated but helpful!

Great functionality, still need UI fix

It’s the best in its market leading EV for road-tripping. Please add battery temperature as an option to display in CarPlay or Android Auto, it helps a lot especially in winter time to study temperature and charging speed of particular EV. this is a feature lots of ev driver wanted to have.
