I believe TRONITY used to go through a third party provider for access to the Porsche APIs – but it is now an officially supported app via Porsche OAuth – so they appear to be calling the official APIs directly.
I used to use them – but found it inaccurate enough – that it just annoyed me. I...
The position of the vehicle is available via the Porsche API – (see my library for an example: https://github.com/driven-app/porsche-connect#position-of-a-vehicle).
Therefore, if you want to plot a route, you just have to keep polling the API at an interval that is appropriate.
^ If these don't have a retrofit solution – it probably isn't possible. They are among the most ambitious when it comes to retrofitting options onto Porsche vehicles.
We charged a total 27 times – 14 times at IONITY and got 7 destination charges at hotels or nearby car parks.
We used a total of 1,240 kWh (1.2 MWh) of electricity over the 5,422 km trip for a total cost of €356.66 or €6.57/100 km (which includes VAT/sales taxes).
The map has been updated!
(also, now that the map has been updated – let's also replan the route and have you stop off at the broken 50 kW charger behind the disused petrol station that will get you murdered).
The way I do it today, is plan out the route on ABRP and then transcribe that route into My Porsche, making sure to search (using the charging filter) for the IONITY stops I want to use and then...
You are very kind in your comments.
Additionally, number of charging stalls does not appear to influence routing decisions enough. A 6 stall 150 kW Kempower station should be preferred over a single 300 kW charging location. You are much more likely to not face a queue, handle a broken...
Don't look at me :)
It is definitely of questionable quality – and I think – at least in the initial years of Taycan – there was a rush to get to a big "marketable number" of over 100,000 charing points in to the Porsche Charging Service – regardless of the quality.
I think this could be...
That's all folks!
Thank you for following along on this 5,422 km road-trip. We really enjoyed ourselves – were fortunate to have had remarkable weather. All our plans worked out perfectly and at no stage was having an EV any kind of hassle or limiting factor at all.
In fact, the opposite: we...
Day 15: Harwich (United Kingdom) -> Dublin (Ireland)
After yet another mirror smooth crossing – we arrive into Harwich in the United Kingdom ahead of time at the ungodly hour of 05:30 (5:30am). Though they allow the trucks off first – so it will be closer to 06:30 (6:30am) before we'll...
Day 14: Leipzig (Germany) –> Hook of Holland (Netherlands)
After breakfast, we pack up our car and leave our Leipzig hotel on a bright September morning.
Driving across the city centre – with its many tram lines and bus lanes.
We've a real transit day today – and a deadline of making a...
