Re: New Nissan EV app is out!

Could someone who has the new APK upload it from their phone? I’m a UK-based iOS user so the worst candidate to try and download it, but I want to decompile it and have a look around, see if the API has changed, etc

Edit: all good, got one now

The new app just told me our Leaf is charged to 1835%. Gee, I hope that isn't overcharged

The new app has a whole new API, now hosted by InfinitiUSA.com (Nissan's luxury division). That's promising, it's definitely been rebuilt from the ground up.

Unfortunately this does mean all of our existing libraries for interacting with it need to be binned.

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.
