Not too much added functionality. I wish they added the ability to remotely turn ON and OFF charging like you can with climate control. I use this app to remotely start charge when I am away for very long periods of time and only want to “top-off” to a 70% level.
This was more of a GUI refresh. Maybe future releases will add more functionality

I never understood why you can’t remotely stop charging. Makes absolutely no sense, especially when charging the 24kwh to 100% isn’t terribly good for it (the 30 doesn’t use all the cells anyway IIRC?)

Alas, you won’t be getting any new features on existing cars, as that would require an OTA update to add it and you know how Nissan don’t like being up to date on the latest innovations like software updates.

There is nothing wrong with charging to 100%. In fact, it needs done regularly to balance the cells. Letting it sit at 100% for extended periods, especially in the heat, is what is bad for the battery. Charging in hot weather should also be avoided, whenever possible.

That’s the one. I don’t actually get my Leaf till tomorrow so haven’t had to work about battery management yet. Just been working on API tinkering in the meantime

I've started writing up all the API calls I can find, still a lot left to do though

Please keep giving your updates. I have not loaded the new app yet, I won't until I start seeing reports that it's stable. As others have said, it seems like not a lot of new functionality, so I guess no need to update now. It would be nice if the Alexa integration worked reliably.

It's worth noting that you can try out the Alexa functionality without downloading the app, they're completely isolated from one another.

At first I couldn't get connected. So I reset it on the dash. Now I've successfully logged in on the app and it tells me the status is unavailable and the web portal is giving me a "System error!! Please try after some time..." error on multiple computers.
It's so annoying.

If I push past the website error and hit login again I get the portal and I was able to get a full status. Now I can focus on the stupid app.

So this weekend I needed to do a round trip outside of the cars range - which is sadly only 55 mi on an 8 bar 2011.

Anyway not an issue, as there is plenty of destination chargers. But after I left the car plugged in and charging, I checked the new Nissan app and at the top it clearly indicated "Unplugged".

Agggh. Someone unplugged me and I won't get home! However I checked Chargepoint which clearly indicated the car was charging and consuming KWhrs.

Really?

So no - not ready for prime time.

Will this version work on a 2015 base model S (w/QC)?

The last time I checked, the App only worked with models with built-in Navigation.

Thanks!
