The app helps you when want to know how much you need to charge to reach the next charger.
Before your first usage of the app it is VERY important that you go into Settings and set the proper settings for your car. You need to set what unit to use (metric (km) or imperial (miles)) and what your car's typical calculation value is.
So when supercharging, you can enter the distance to the next supercharger and then your battery charge (typical range) and find out what consumption you can average on the way to your destination. That way it is very easy to see how much typical range you need!
