UI needs a lot of work

The app’s core function (optimal route planning) works well, but the navigating the app, interactions and just the general state of UI in the app needs serious work — and could be holding back the experience. A few things come to mind

- Type face size and colors in various areas (ex. trip range graph)
- Scrolling the trip nav route sometimes freezes
- UI sometimes getting clipped and stuck (trip nav route)
- Confusing icons (save icon looks like its for “upload”)
- Share button not working
- Labels getting clipped (ex. Route table header)
- Sluggish performance when interacting with the sidebar
- Confusing input fields (ex. Waypoint detail — adding an arrival or departure time is finicky)
- Inconsistent menu locations (menu options from Settings all look different and pop up in different parts of the screen)
- Settings -> Unit button not doing anything
- Items getting clipped or overflowing in input fields (ex. Reference speed in Settings)
- 0 keyboard shortcuts
- UI not following safe inset zones on iOS devices
- Share button not doing anything
- Why is there two different entry points for Settings? (One from the sidebar and one from the ABRP icon in the map — which looks like its for account settings but actually takes you to trip settings)

Etc.

This is on an iPad Pro 12.9”

Hi there,

Thank you for the feedback! We are aware that we have improvements to make UI-wise and we're working on it ;) If you'd like to continue the conversation feel free to email us at support@iternio.com

We'll of course take all feedback in consideration but here are a few comments in response:
- It would be helpful to receive more information about the issue with the 'share button' as there are multiple things shareable
- Changing units does make changes but due to a bug in the current version the changes aren't displayed instantly. Clicking 'back' will have it changed.
- For keyboard shortcuts we assume you mean for the web version correct? We can look into that :)
- Regarding the 'settings' in two places, there are still remnants of the initial app version and we'll be changing things gradually to not confuse our long-time users too much.

App stability and some suggestions

So this app does help you plan for your trip it allows you to set an average speed and plot charging based on that which is nice for those of us who don’t want to go 65 in an 80 zone to make it to the next charger. The app has a few problems, I’ve noticed when data is limited the app malfunctions, it doesn’t properly forecast the remaining battery percentage when you go below the minimum set threshold and if you set it below where you would like the battery to be at the next charger it will plot it to that percentage. What ends up happening is when you go below let’s say 25% where I set it to it then says you won’t make it and you will arrive with negative 600% battery. I think if they changed it to minimum charge preference instead of minimum charge theshold that calculation wouldn’t fail. It also crashes when left open on the map for a long time too.

Overall this is a nice trip planner, not sure if premium is worth it based on the limited app stability and calculation performance in real time. The stability issues had me using the Tesla nav and not the app on my return trip.

Fantastic App and Awesome Development

VERY highly recommended! This is a marvelous app. While the stock Tesla in-car navigation system is great, abetterrouteplanner is an order of magnitude improvement and makes trip planning a pleasure. The wealth of data that this application synthesizes virtually eliminates any vestige of “range anxiety” that I still had after over a year of Tesla ownership. Among many other features, the ability to select various route options, such as “avoid highways” is extraordinarily welcome, especially since the native Tesla navigation system does not allow such fine tuning. The basic version of this app is great and highly functional but the premium version is well worth it. I would also stress that while it has a few minor glitches (virtually inevitable with a complex application) the developer is so conscientious and so dedicated that I have no doubt that it will continue to improve. The developer has plans to execute a video tutorial, which will be a real plus. If every app developer had his attitude the virtual world would be a far better place!
