ABRP Premium Live Data Beta
Notice: As of Jan 19 2023 this feature has been discontinued and is no longer available as part of the ABRP Premium package. For alternative options please reach out to our support.
Notice: As of Nov 25 2022 this beta program is no longer available and ABRP Premium Live data is instead available to all ABRP Premium subscribers.
Real-world vehicle data could be considered one of the most crucial pieces when creating accurate plans for electric vehicles, and while a good number of our vehicle models already can be connected through various third-party and direct connection options, we are always looking for higher quality and more accessible options. Today we are pleased to announce the beta program for a new OTA live data source which we plan on adding as a feature available to all our Premium users, making the package an even more complete solution including planning, navigation, and soon also live data without additional subscriptions or hardware.
But before the full release, we of course want to conduct a proper beta test to detect issues that may be specific to, for instance, certain vehicle models. We've got 100 spots for ABRP Premium users with supported vehicle models to join the beta test. Before joining, please consider the following;
Check that your car is on the list of supported vehicles (Please note that the following vehicle brands are excluded from the linked list; Hyundai, Kia, Opel, Peugeot, Tesla.)
Verify that you are able to get data from your car remotely, such as in the manufacturer's app. Most modern cars should support this, but older models may need to have connectivity services enabled by the manufacturer
Make sure to have a saved vehicle in your ABRP account which you want to get live data to
Only join the beta program if you think you'll have the time to evaluate the connection and provide feedback
Once you're ready, click the button below to join and get access. We recommend doing this in a web browser on a PC where you are already logged into your ABRP account.
Further questions & answers
When will this feature be fully released?
We'd like to be able to make it available as soon as possible, but in reality, it all depends on how the beta test goes, what issues are detected, and how complex these are to fix.
I have already linked my car via the ABRP OBD Connection, can I still join the beta?
Yes! We recently introduced the possibility to connect cars via dual live data sources meaning that it is now possible to combine one in-car live data source such as the ABRP OBD Connection and one over-the-air (OTA) live data source, such as the ABRP Premium Live Data Connection, given that your vehicle model is supported of course.
Where do I submit feedback as a beta-tester?
Issues can be reported here on our bug tracker website. You may also reach out to our support through the app or website via the 'Support & feedback' section at the bottom of the settings menu.
