New Nissan EV app is out!

Thu Jan 18, 2018 8:56 pm

check the play store to update it on your phones. i just did and was able to log in with my gen 1 leaf account and it recognized my car and showed me the gen1 car picture in the app even. (not sure if it always shows white but my car is white so maybe it knows)

go check it out and report back. this afternoon after i downloaded it i was not able to get it to connect/sync to my car, going to play with it some more tonight.

supposedly alexa should work with it now too, but it is asking me for a 4 digit pin when i tell it to start my Leaf... don't have such a pin that i know of.

not able to get the app to sync battery status at this point, give me error : Failed to get battery status value. Please try again later.

driving history loads through the app just fine though. so some parts work.

Was your phone in battery saving mode, at 16% charge?

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

no, that starts at 15%, but i got the same error during the day when it was still mostly full. someone on /r/leaf said it works for them, so i am wondering if anyone else's here works or doesn't work.

cheers

Good thing I remembered my sign in :D

Looks like it gives me the status okay. Still takes a few seconds/half a minute or so...

I tried the Find My Car (My Car Finder) feature. Map initially showed Europe. After I hit the refresh circle button and waited, my local street map showed up. About a half mile off, may not be designed for high degree of accuracy just a general idea of location/zip code. Good thing I remember where I parked it (in my garage) ;)

Hi!

Is there a way to make it work outside of the US? :roll:
Even if it still that slow, I like the new design very much.
I can't install it from the Play Store, I tried the newest APK, but it shows the old UI.

Have they updated the back-end to make it more reliable? ("No").

I really hope they have not gone through the trouble of creating a new app without making it more reliable. Does anyone know how much of the new functionality is supposed to work with the Gen 1 Leaf?

I got the new app to turn climate control on and off for my 2017 Leaf. Trying to get it to work with Alexa. No luck yet. This page gives me some commands to try with Alexa.

https://www.nissanusa.com/connect/featu ... connect-ev

I can get Alexa to recognize some of the commands, but not complete the operation yet.

Still can't get the app to find my car even after a refresh.

Partly based on this thread, I have not updated my Leaf app yet...which is a pain, because I can't do an "update all".
I wish they had given it a new name to allow for the existence of both apps (new and old) simultaneously.
