I've seen where it can take a Bluetooth signal from an OBD dongle. But, I haven't heard if the Solterra can directly communicate the real-time data to the app without having to use the dongle.I believe that the ABetterRoutePlanner can use real-time data from various sources.
It looks like it does for Apple??I wonder if any of the route planning methods uses real-time onboard data from the car? Doesn't seem like it from this video. Looks like it relies on vehicle selection from a list.
That's encouraging, since the Solterra has standard integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.The first EV to support the feature is the Mustang Mach-E from Ford. No word yet on when other CarPlay-enabled EVs like the Porsche Taycan will get it.www.iphoneincanada.ca
That Subaru Canada video specifically uses the Apple Maps route planning with charging stations as an example. Great to see. But looks like the Solterra app (Subaru Drive Connect he called it in the video) also does route planning. So I'm sure that reads the vehicles data as well. Don't think there will be a need for an OBD dongle. But possibly if ABRP is what you really want to use.That's encouraging, since the Solterra has standard integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
