Create a new route
As described in the route introduction, the first thing you will need to do is fetch a
route ID. This
route ID can then be sent to subscribe to route details and retrieve a polyline and other route data.
To get a
route ID, you will need to provide us with EV details and at least a departure location and destination. Apart from that you can also support any of the options that are described below.
Support alternative stations along a route
If you want to request alternative charging stations along a route, you can set the
stationsAlongRouteRadius property of the route mutation. The radius can be set between
5000 meters. This will return all applicable stations within the set radius following the specified powers and standards.
Support stations as waypoint
You can add a station as a waypoint or as a destination. To do this, add
Get additional properties
Our route destination, origin and stations have an optional
properties attribute in any of our route queries. You can use this to fetch a complete
address, the current temperature (
temp) and air
pressure at that location.
You can configure this query to use percentages for the state of charge and final state of charge. This way client-side conversions are no longer needed. Please be aware that the percentages are based upon the
usableCarBattery or the capacity included inside this mutation.
In your route request, you can rank or exclude operators based on preference. We support ten different levels of preference. Level 1 is considered the highest level, and level 10 is the lowest. It is possible to skip levels or add multiple operators to the same level. Every level lowers the preference by 10 percent. Enable your operator ranking by setting it to
If you always prefer and exclude the same operators, we recommend that you add your operator ranking to your client configuration instead. The route request will override any client configuration you might have.
In the route request you can define a list of amenities that should be available at the charge stations. Valid amenity types are:
pharmacy. The route that matches the requested amenities best will be available as a route alternative with the type
bestMatching. If you did include an operator ranking object in your route request this ranking is equally taken into account.
Use the amenity list query to retrieve the amenity details for a station id.
If successful, the HTTP status code in the response header is
200 and the response body contains the attributes you
If unsuccessful, the header status code is an error code and the response body contains an error response object. The error response object can be any of the ones below.
