I've seen it discussed that there is cloud-based navigation. But I haven't seen it automatically routing through charging stations, telling you how long to charge, etc. Does the Solterra do this?

The Solterra has a charging station locator integrated app. But, I'm wondering if you can enter a destination into the route planner and have it automatically route you through the charging stations? Seems silly for any EV not to do this. If not, I'm wondering if you could just use apps like A Better Route Planner or PlugShare via Apple Car Play or Android Auto to display in the large screen, and have the instrument cluster sync up with it via the CARDS standard to show turn by turn instructions?

I'm seeing that A Better Route Planner (ABRP) works through Android Auto (and maybe Apple Car Play) for route planning and navigation. And you can plug in an OBD dongle to send real-time car data (state of charge, battery temperature, etc.) to ABRP for more accurate estimates of distance, charging time, adjustments to route, etc. It'd be cool if the car would send the data directly to ABRP without the need for an OBD dongle.
