Some people mentioned that it is annoying for them that they are routed back to the charger if they ignore it on purpose.
We could add an option, that does not send back people, but navigates to the next possible charger.

There should be an option to say that you don't want to charge or you will charge at destination . I've been using the 0% arrival charge for that...:/
For that you don't need an EV route planner, do you?
So you want to tell me, that if there is one trip I don't want to charge, I would need to set up a different route planner? Now that's what I call customer service.
I still use it to estimate charge at arrival. Most times ABRP says I need to charge when I know I don't because I've a private chargers at destinations. And I want to go directly to destination and it keeps routing a different destination, so it can charge 1 or 2mins... Makes no sense!
I think the original feature request is to reroute the user to a new (more suitable) charger if one is missed/ignored.
But this thread here seems to be about not adding chargers when aiming to get to a destination with low SoC - this should still be possible by setting the destination SoC to 0% (or something low). Is that somehow not working as desired?
That's true. The original request is to be able reroute to another charger, if one is ignored or passed by. But when that happens, it could ask user if it wants to charge or not. Going to the settings, while driving, to set destination SoC at 0%, it's not very practical or safe. On Carplay I don't remember seeing option for that.
I guess this will also work if the charger is not available for any reason (in use by others, or not working).
In 4.1.5 the route will not be forced back to the original charger anymore, however it will still be the default choice. Other chargers will be presented as alternatives.
