    Not sure if anyone has seen this...but they already have the information for the Tesla Model-S (all three battery packs, too).

    You put in your starting address in the Map Address bar. Then you click on your destination to drop a pin and it will show you how much charge you will have when you arrive (depending on driving style (Eco->Sport), elevation, and distance).

    This is really cool. I'd love to get my hands on the source and tweak it though. Add a miles option, and the ability to just enter 2 addresses instead of one address then dragging around to find the other on the map.

    Not sure about that ... this was last worked on as a student project in 2011. How is your french because here is the development history http://jurassictest.ch/green-race/green-race-30-web/366-gr3-credits.html (they have a great visual of EVs available from 2010 -2013 at the bottom of the page).

    You could always contact them to see if they are going to (or have already) release it as open source ...

    This is what Tesla (and all car makers) should have working the screen map on the dash.

    This is a great tool. Another useful addition would be to use a computed speed as the default, based on the posted limits or the average speed in a database.

    80km/h along the 101 to Santa Barbara? Either someone will rear-end you, or you'll be stuck in stop-start traffic! :)

    You can change the speed in the program, of course. But my idea was that the program would be smart enough to recognize that different segments operate at different speeds. There are substantial range implications between these two scenarios:
    1. Driving a constant 50 mph for 20 miles along a county highway
    2. Driving 70 mph for 10 miles on an interstate, then 30 mph for 10 miles on back roads.
    The ideal program would operate just as GPS devices operate, evaluating each trip segment based on estimated speed. Ideally, that speed reflects current traffic conditions (although I'm not sure I'd be comfortable planning a trip depending that I'd hit bad traffic somewhere)

    And traffic reports and elevation and weather reports and SF Critical Mass.

    Well, I guess for now we give them feedback on options to add... Though with them not doing any work until the Fall, I guess by then most won't need it and/or may use another tool.
