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?

New Nissan Connect & Services App

Fri Jan 19, 2018 12:22 pm

If it ain't broke why fix it? The new design don't care for it at all. I'm currently charging my car and it says 110% plugged in and had some mileage range digital only, versus the segmented bars and digits, like you would see on your dash and the old app.

Also every time you go to the charge function it automatically sends out a charge request; you don't even get a chance to ya or nay it. So it turned my charging off since it was already charging and did not indicate it. It's not really clear if you're charging or not anymore. It finally updated and states "charg...." (charging is cut it off in a stylized circular layout). Before they had two simple icons, one Plugged In, One charging now (both showing) with charge bars and range, in rectangular layout, using the full screen of smartphones (verses stuffing it on edge of graphics) so nothing is abbreviated. You don't get that same Info at a glance layout anymore. Booooo. One star.

I'm sure they made some other improvements that are better, but the basic General status page is more stylized and less useful. It looks like the people who programmed this App didn't actually drive an EV car or use the old app daily, as I do. Really the old version (basic functions) were better. Maybe they historical data, history page, your "ranking" part is better? Could care less.

I want to be able to see at a glance exactly what my range is, and is the charge cable plugged in and ready to charge, start and stop charging, turn on or turn off the environmental control system. That is not as clear now. Also the one button starts charging or stops charging without confirmation is just not really acceptable.
