I dont currently use ABRP, wasn't too bothered about the interface and not doing enough long journeys to need the planning functionality... what's everyone else's thoughts over Google Maps?

I agree ABRP is a good idea but the user interface is awful. Google maps has a pretty good interface but not enough EV functionality for planning routes
Second that!

Does anyone use premium? Watching Bjorn's video I think I saw you can send your routes to Google Maps from ABRP? I don't road trip a ton...yet anyway. We're planning a Seattle to Portland trip soon.

With our P2, doing a route with ABRP including stops for charging would not get the battery in warm condition for DC rapid charging, wouldn't it ? (Because the stops would not be planned in Google Maps, right ?)

Jup, only using GM will precondition your battery for charging.

So use ABRP for the planning but input the stops on GM?

You don't need premium for that, but GM (or better its API) is limited to receiving one POI only so you can only transfer the next stop planned in ABRP.

So use ABRP for the planning on your PC, open the trip in the car an transfer your stops one by one.

You can do it on standard as well just use the share button

Sorry is that the same for the desktop version?

The desktop (and smartphone) version can transfer a multi-stop route. It's a limitation of GM on AAOS.

I might have to start using it again, since I'm still a premium user, so I can make use of the satellite view that Google has held back on Google Maps.

ABRP only works in the foreground on Polestar so anything other than planning is unfortunately a non starter. I tried it for the trip “Driver journal “ that Polestar have failed to deliver which still states it’s to be delivered in 2021 on their website.

It's definitely snappier than it used to be, and having a satellite view is pretty nice. (Now hurry up Google and make that a reality for GM in the screen and gauge cluster!)

No shade, but ABRP got a ton of hype from forum members, and then I just found myself using the BEV features built into Google Maps without too much of an issue. That said, I did find it really valuable for planning a trip with overnight stops to better account for starting and ending charge state, etc.

It’s very helpful to plan. I find it’s much more useful away from the car on my iPad with its big screen. Then punch in the trip into GM. Wish there was a way to save planned routes in the GM app though.

yep, I just use ABRP for planning trips - it is quite good for this. But in the car I just use Google to navigate to the next planned stop. Works much better. I have the ABRP app installed in the car, but I don't think I've used it in several months.
