[Ovmsdev] Seeking ideas for 'range' representation

Hi Mark,

The only thing with this is, obviously roads are not straight so a radius will never show a correct estimate.  I think the range estimate would have to be only a percentage of the two values so that the range circle would be more realistic….. Maybe 60% of the values given by the car or something to that effect.  Otherwise you will never make it to the next charge point………. what do you think?

Plugging in the values for my car today, assuming I was somewhere in the centre of the UK, it would look something like this:
