No idea if this is good, bad or indifferent (nor why Rivian would want to own it ...)

"We reached out to ABRP CEO Bo Lincoln for confirm/deny/comment who referred us to Rivian. Rivian sent us to their Europe-based head of corporate affairs, who couldn’t comment"

All carefully thought through then :(
I am a little concerned that this may cause ABRP to get locked down/be differentiated with Robison only features.

I hope not, but these types of services tend to do best when not having to follow the whims of a management who see it as a very small non core part of a company.

One exception would be Prusa slicer.. but even that has some Prusa specific quirks.

Perhaps there is room for an open street map like open source option in the market? Did ABRP file any patents that would make that hard?
