    I have created an app that quickly can assist you when you're charging and wonder how much you need to reach your destination, based on your required average consumption.

    First you have to enter your car's typical calculation-value in the app settings. (Tesla Model S typical range calculation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7Xp7zSp7Rs )

    The app has two calculation-modes. You can either calculate your maximum average consumption (Wh/km) to your destination based on current charge, or you can calculate required charge for your wanted average consumption to your destination.

    The app can be installed from here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.frankburmo.nextsupercharger

    Constructive criticism is very welcome, so I can improve the app.

    Also, please contribute by posting your cars typical calculation-value, so that we can create a reference list for the different models.

    This looks like a very useful app.

    One feature request would be that you add a dropdown where you select your car whether it's 60, 70, 70D, 85, 85D, P85D, 90D, P90D or P90DL. I assume most of theese have different calculation values. In addition to the dropdown you could have a manual imput box if the user wants to override. This might make the app a bit more accessible to beginners :)

    Also, I believe "Typical" is not used as a term in american cars. If i remember correctly they have Rated or Ideal, where we in europe have "Typical" and "Rated"

    Another idea: Add option to give current soc in percent in stead of km.

    Why make it an app, why not a web site and we can use the in car browser?
    And why not a name like TypiCalc? :smile:

    Or in light of @Requiem's post, why not TrypiCalc? (TrippyCalc?)
