The service's support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is a game-changer, significantly enhancing the in-car driving experience and facilitating professional-grade route planning. But ABRP's commitment to providing the most comprehensive and user-friendly service doesn't stop there. The latest update from ABRP brings another improvement to the table: live data capabilities.
With this new feature, ABRP adds another layer of functionality and insight for drivers. It provides real-time over-the-air data, such as battery level (state of charge), battery voltage, battery temperature, and vehicle location, without the need for additional hardware like OBD dongles. These streaming capabilities not only provide real-time insights but also enable on-the-go route updates, making your journey as smooth as possible.
As the vehicle generates new data, it is securely pushed via the MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol to ABRP. MQTT, one of the most widely adopted messaging protocols, is widely used in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT). This secure streaming ensures that your data is always up-to-date and readily available for your perusal.
High Mobility, a reliable provider of vehicle data, upholds the highest standards of trust and security through its adherence to GDPR-compliant data sharing consent flow. This means users will always know which data points are being shared, with whom, and for what purposes. This transparency empowers users to have full control over their data and maintain their privacy.
These exciting new capabilities are part of ABRP's premium plan for Porsche drivers. With this addition, Porsche drivers will now be able to optimise their journeys better than ever before. But ABRP's vision extends beyond just one brand. The service anticipates extending this offer to other brands in the future, given that the data is always provided in the same structure and format.
With this new live data feature, A Better Routeplanner continues to redefine the electric vehicle experience, making it more convenient, informative, and enjoyable for drivers.
