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!

@Gearscout: only works with navigation cars that have a 3G antenna in them.

i re-logged into my app in the car and now it looks like i can refresh status and control my car through the app. thanks for that tip!

still shows as 'unplugged' even though my car is currently charging, so that is annoying.. will test remote heating and alexa some more later.

Yes, the bogus "unplugged" status surprised me yesterday. My climate control timer is set for 5:30 and if the car is unplugged the heat doesn't run as long, so when I thought the car was unplugged I left sooner to not just waste the power, only to get out to the car and find it using charger power to preheat.

this app shows information all over the place. i charged it for a few hours last night and the app showed 100% (which i thought was wierd, my 3.8kw charger wont go from 30%-100% in 2-3 hours), got in the car this morning, 70%. not that i needed all that, but come on!

i hope Nissan sees these threads and can use the feedback to improve the system. Don't leave the first gen Leafers behind Nissan, this is great free marketing for you!

Today I noticed that the app said I was at 100% (and unplugged) just 30 minutes after I plugged in the car with a 60% SOC. I went out to the car to see it was still plugged in and charging (and the dash said it has 2 hours left to charge). :o

So it is still just as slow and still fails talking to the car, but now it can apparently succeed talking to the car but give you a garbage result.

But it definitely is nicer looking. :lol:

That's the problem...and why I have been manually updating my apps to avoid downloading the new one. At this point, I think Nissan needs to either rename the new app or suspend updates until they figure it out.

Does anyone have any similar apps for their other cars? Are they as buggy as this one? The APP does look nicer, but these issues being reported are big ones. I'm not sure how a new app gets released like that.
