A Better Routeplanner (ABRP) is the world's most respected service to plan,
learn and dream about Electric Vehicles - EVs. Simply select your vehicle model,
enter your destination and hit plan to get a full trip plan including charge

Great app, but still buggy
I like the app but it’s still buggy. Especially if I go back and forth between the app and the website. The “reference consumption” and “temperature” keeps getting messed up when using imperial units.
A Must-Have for Tesla Owners
I have been using their website for a while now, and the route planning is extremely accurate. I’m excited to see it in app form. Use this route planner to better plan your road trips. It’ll adjust for environmental conditions (temperature, road conditions, driving style, elevation) much more accurately than Tesla’s in-car navigation. Be sure to adjust your max speed, temperature, and driving efficiency references for yourself. Your goal should be to arrive at each supercharger with as little charge as possible, because the battery charges more quickly at its lower charge states. This might mean slightly more stops than the default navigation, but much less overall time charging during the entire road trip (stopping twice as often and charging from 10%-50% is still much faster than stopping half as much and charging from 10%-90%). Safe travels!
A Good Fallback
We find ABRP indispensable for planning our long distance trips. In particular we appreciate being able to evaluate and choose among alternate routes and being able to add CHAdeMO chargers to the mix. We usually start on the desktop or laptop at home and then revise as we travel on the M3’s web browser while we’re charging. The iOS app allows us to revise when we’re out of the car on longer breaks. The UI is a bit quirky and awkward on an iPhone, but all the essential functionality is there.
Crashes after launch on iPad Air (iOS 10.3.3)
Shortly after launching the app, it displays the prompt for accessing location, but disappears without any error. Checking the task switcher reveals ABRP still running, but nothing works, just closes the primary display again. However, the app does see to run OK on my iPhone SE with same iOS version. On the iPhone, I cannot switch between km/miles & C/F, but can plan a route. This app is obviously in need of additional development.
If anything like their website...
This app is a must have, assuming it is anything like their website. Not too invasive, super customizable, great planning tool for just about every EV in every country in any weather conditions/driving style you can imagine. As Bjorn would say... it’s good sheeeet!
Release is premature
I use the ABRP on my mobile browser regularly and it is GREAT. However, this app feels unusable in its present form: - the keyboard often covers up tappable text such as previous destinations. - icons and text are crammed at the bottom and partially cut off. - planned route is displayed much less efficiently compared with table on web and you must choose between seeing the route details or the map by sliding the card up and down. - tapping on Superchargers provides no useful info or the ability to link to charger website. All in all, this feels both rushed and developed in an IDE that tries to spit out generic apps for any OS rather than being native.
More a BETA than a full release
As others have noted the UI is very clumsy. The app does not appear to support changing from metric to Imperial measurements (miles and Fahrenheit). When I pull up the details on a charging stop there is no address listed. Perhaps after some updates this will be more useful, but very limited usability as of now.
Love the website, but the app crashes constantly
A resource every EV driver should utilize. Eerily accurate if you take the time to configure all the settings. So I was really looking forward to using the iOS app, but it crashes constantly (11 Pro Max running iOS 13.3). Opens, but every time I try to get into the settings the app crashes. Tried restarting phone, deleting and reinstalling...nothing works. Useless in its current form.
A good tool to keep handy
Good first attempt. Pretty complete. The Region under Preferences always defaults back to Europe even though I’ve selected North America multiple times. How do I get this to stick?
Happy to see the app rolling out
Excited to use the app but it does not offer the imperial > metric switching function which would be required for most North Americans. I look forward to it’s progress as it evolves and will adjust my rating as I am able to make more use of it.
Lazy Port of a Great Web Site
This is a great site and this app would be awesome if they had the following - it is almost criminal to not be universal - I don't care how much better the metric system is, the app should read the system locale/region and choose the appropriate units. - Changing from metric to imperial is bugged and doesn't change to miles
Glad this is an app!
So great to finally have an app, their website is top notch! Have only played with the app a little but looks like a great resource for any EV driver out there.
Best App For EV Route Planning
So happy ABRP finally has an app now. Their trip planning has saved me time and again from bad situations by helping me plan for headwinds, cold temperatures, extra weight, and variable speeds.
Elon has said no waypoints... Tesla offers a “Share destination to my Tesla” option, which allows an address to automatically be put into the car’s navigation system... Could this app automatically “Share [the next waypoint] destination to my Tesla” upon arriving at a previous waypoint? This would essentially make your app an automated waypoint manager for the Tesla nav system!
So glad this finally hit iOS. Thanks for all the hard work on the site and now this!

ABRP is the best yet. If you put the correct data ,it gives you the most realistic evaluation of range. The data base is up to date . The route planning software is very strong incorporating elevation and winds.
