So as is often discussed, what is the ideal SOC range to keep one's battery in. It is general accepted and even battery experts say not to run your battery low, YET, when using the Nav on a trip, it will letting you start your next leg of your trip with an estimated arrival SOC of 10%.
So if it is harmful to the battery to go below say 15-20%, why then does the trip planner have no problem telling you to go that low on every leg of a trip?
I just returned from yet another trip from CT to NC. There were a number of times that the system wanted me to continue on, even though my estimate arrival SOC would be 12%.
