Planning a non-Tesla trip from SFO to ORD just to learn the app and to compare my car to a Tesla for the trip. The table of results gives a nice estimate of costs, time spent, and charge levels. But at two stops in CO, the cost was given in euro. I struggled a bit to find a way to export the tabular results to a spreadsheet because in the iPad version, the share function wasn’t there. The tabular results present most of the data you’d want except cost per kWh. Details about charging stations are provided in a click through.
.. but it’s just so difficult to use. I see Developer responses from a year ago about the UI and how it will be fixed but the all I’d just as poorly designed today as it was 1.5 years ago when I discovered it. The app is feature packed, and offers options I can’t get with my phone maps or Tesla’s built in maps but using it is a chore, and it requires me to click every button to see what it does. Please just hire a UI designer and let them completely redesign the app, I beg you.
New UI in 4.1 is even worse than the old one. Seriously guys. Hire a professional user interface designer. That said, functionally it’s very good but seriously hampered by the mess that’s UX
It’s very challenging to figure out how to get it to save a start time, leave the keyboard, add a waypoint, or start a new rout.
Terrible user interface. Half the time I can’t figure out how to even enter a start and end point.
This was not designed with the end user in mind. Just terrible! Testing it out, I certainly won’t be subscribing!
The app fill the gap on market. But the UI almost render the application useless.
It is NOT a better route planner. This app doesn’t show the route numbers or names for the planned routes. The planned route is obscured by the colored lines created by the planned route. Unlike Maps or Google Maps it doesn’t show directions to the destination. It’s ok to find a charger and then use Google Maps or Maps to plan your drive This using an iPad Air 4. Very disappointing.
OMG! Love this route planner! So many variables! I’m not sure you can improve the UI without losing features. Maybe you could make an “Automatic Mode” and “Expert Mode” to help broaden the appeal?? This planner can even export to excel spreadsheets!!! If that fact alone doesn’t make you smile, this is not the app for you!
I wrote a review giving this app one star because it simply wouldn’t work. I have since gotten frustrated and pressed the buttons repeatedly and it seems they need to be double clicked to work. Since I got it working it’s the best app I e seen for automatically plotting a long trip in an ev.
