We’ve made it more convenient to plan trips and get on the road:

Search results for places now include the drive times next to the results as you type. Choose the drive time to go straight to navigation. You can still choose a result on the list to view details and a preview of the route before you start your trip.

Charging stops that are part of your trip now appear with pins that show the planned charging time and charger speed – the faster the speed, the greater the number of lightning bolt icons. Tap the charger pin to view details about the charger’s network, availability, and speed.

When you arrive at a charging stop that is part of your trip, you see the target charge level under the arrival message. This tells you how much you’re supposed to charge during the stop.

You can now share text addresses from your smartphone to your vehicle navigation, including addresses in text, emails, calendars, notes, and other apps.

On your smartphone, for any address in text that you can highlight or long-press, choose Share, and then choose the Rivian mobile app to send it to your vehicle navigation. The Share option is also supported for Apple Maps, Google Maps, and Yelp.
