The EV Co-Driver is a free navigation app specialized for electric vehicles (EVs) to reduce range anxiety for your road trips. Range anxiety is the fear that you may be stranded due to insufficient energy and also the uneasiness that you may encounter long waiting queues and charger malfunction at charging stations. The EV Co-Driver allows you to easily start your road trips just by inputting your current battery level (state of charge) and your destinations without checking locations and availability of charging stations. It will auto-route/reroute the shortest time path from start point to destinations via available charging stations where short wait times are expected, based on your current battery level and car charging requirements. You no longer have to make a charging plan before starting your trip or worry about how you intend to reach destinations during the drive beyond your car’s single charge limits and can arrive with peace of mind and power left over.

Inaccurate information with no way to correct
So I have a Chevy Bolt. It’s official range is 238 miles. The app pegs it at 168. Now, obviously with freeway driving, I will probably get less that 238, but not THAT much less. So that’s problem #1. Inputting a long drive I’ve taken before it has me stopping an extra stop than needed and charging twice as long as you actually need.
Another issue is that if you have the default mail app set to a 3rd party app on your phone and uninstall Apple’s Mail app, there’s no way to send feedback.
I guess I get what the app is trying to do, but there are better options.
Extremely basic and not quite functional
There isn’t much to this app. I tried it and quickly deleted for the following reasons:
doesn’t take into account battery degradation, I set it to 90% but I can’t tell the app that my 90% is not a brand new 90%, not ever is but I can’t change that so all calculations will be off for the route.
Zoom out to far and you can’t look for chargers in a large area.
Took too long to map route, gave up and deleted. Was promising idea, poor execution. This is not a version 2+ app, still 0.X.
