WARNING: EVTO to sunset July 2024. See What's New in this Version for details.
EVTO 7 has refined the most popular EV trip planner app for phone sized devices. Plan trips on your phone with multiple waypoints. Explore charging options using the charger overlays, have EVTO decide where to charge for you. Save frequently-used locations like 'Home' to speed up trip planning. EVTO 7 is the only EV trip planner you'll need, and it's always with you.
EVTO is predominantly a subscription-based application, for both monthly or annual use. You can try EVTO for one week without commitment. With the free version you have all you need to plan day trips and you can subscribe to the extra features as needed. See http://www.digitalautoguides.com/#evto_main for all the features, help, tutorials and other valuable information before you install the application.
Please use the Feedback Report on the main menu or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you encounter any issues while using the app.
The application takes into account your car's characteristics such as model, battery, charger, wheels, motors and tires along with your driving style. During planning the application collects enroute weather, determines elevation gains/losses, uses wind speeds, temperatures, estimated speed, charging capabilities and your state of charge to help you discover the optimal trip with the least amount of total time expended.
You can save your trips* to be used over and over again, compare trips to each other using a variety of provided charts and graphs.

I will be sun-setting EVTO in July of 2024. What this means is that the application will continue to work as it does today until the end of July 2024. Between now and then, as annual or yearly subscriptions come up for renewal, they will not be renewed. Only Monthly subscriptions will be offered from this time forward and they will be suspended in June of 2024. All features will continue to work through July 2024.
Ratings and Reviews
I really want to like this app and will continue to try to make it work for me because the potential is high. Two problems that I am struggling to deal with seem pretty basic but I’ve found no resolution in the help section. First, I can’t plan a long distance trip (>~20 waypoints) without it telling me I need to break it down into segments (I have the subscription). That would assume I know good ways to break up the trip, but not knowing where the optimal charging points are, I can’t do that. I would like the app to auto segment a large trip for me after asking how far/long I want to drive each day. Instead I have to build the trip manually by looking at another source for the approximate trip route then attempt to recreate that with supercharger stops in the app. Time consuming. Second, if I change the destination for a trip, the app seems to get confused and dumps all the charging points, even after telling it to refresh auto charging points. My only option is to delete the whole trip and start over again. Not ideal.
Update: developer very responsive and working hard to improve the app. Still needs refinement but the app is getting better all the time. Will continue to update this review as the app progresses.
Developer Response ,
The restriction on the number of waypoints is because of a maps restriction and the fact that EVTO uses weather and the weather forecasts would be wrong for a continuous trip of that many stops. You have the right idea in using the segment feature for dividing the trip into days, which will be easier for you to manage and also create the correct weather forecasts that will more accurate depict your energy consumption. See the Rangefinder on the main menu to help you decide where to segment a trip.
We are sorry the app caused a problem for you if you change the destination. Please use the Feedback Report on the main menu to help us resolve any problems you encounter or to give us ideas for future features you would like considered.
You have to have this if you own a Tesla
This thing is the most amazing app I’ve ever seen. Allows you to optimize your charging stops for a road trip. While this seems like it may be unnecessary given the on board route planner I can tell you this works much better. The onboard system tries to minimize stops (an option in this software) so it will make you drive as far as you can, then have a nice long charge stop. This software allows you several options, including min charging time. Thus, you can take more frequent shorter charging stops and minimize your driving time. Takes into account temperature, winds, elevation changes, etc to produce a very accurate consumption rate. I’m amazed every time how close it gets to the real rate. App allows you to send your route, all stops, to your onboard nav, via calendar entries. I love this thing. Yes the interface can be a bit glitchy at times, but the developer has always been extremely responsive to emails.
And quick update, my wife drove our model X on a 90 mile road trip to the neighboring town. This software predicted the energy usage to within 1% of actual. (Ended up having 1% more).
And one more, just did a 1000 mile trip to a national park and back. Again, all stops were within a % point. Amazing.
Route Map Disappears Until Force Quit
I like the ability to create a big trip and divide it into daily segments, and have great hopes for this app. The problem I have is that it often stops displaying my route and stops on the map display. When it does that I fiddle around trying to get it back, then give up, force quit the application and restart. I am using an iPad Pro 11-inch with IOS 12.1.2 I have had the app for a couple of months, retrying it now and then. I use it in landscape mode with the apple keyboard/cover.
