Mapping App/Software Specific to EVS?

Hi all, I am wondering if anyone is aware of an app/software to map directions that is specific to EVS that takes into account elevation changes, among other things, that would affect the range of an EV?

I looked around and couldn't locate anything that was fitting. It is entirely possible I wasn't looking in the right place or using the right phrasing, so I thought I'd ask here.

On a recent road trip my range anxiety was brought back by big hill climbs, without having charging readily available. My in car factory GPS seemingly only accounts for miles. I've heard that Tesla's use of google maps accounts for elevation when calculating routes, so as to give a more real world range over energy usage.

Thanks,

Mark

After trying many, I really like A Better Route Planner. https://abetterrouteplanner.com
It started as Tesla-only, but now includes beta support for many other EVs.
It does include elevation into energy consumption.

I also use and like A Better Route Planner https://abetterrouteplanner.com/ but I also check results against EV Trip Planner https://www.evtripplanner.com/. The latter has specific routing for each different version of a Tesla, but also has two versions (Alpha and Beta) for the LEAF.
