Software updates question

Sat Sep 08, 2018 10:09 am

My Leaf was built in March 2018 and sat in the dealership showroom until last week. Are vehicle update ( Battery, PPA, Entertainment/Navigation) sent via wireless or do I need to go to the dealership for them?

Nissan does not do OTA. Software updates appear via technical bulletins, NTB, and do not occur that often. Dealerships install them. Usually they appear in response to specific problems, e.g., air bags, 3G modems. It is not like an app update process. Do not expect any updates for services like navigation or entertainment. Maybe Nissan sells packages for those items. If you ever get close to a battery warranty milestone, have your Leaf checked early for NTBs. Some drivers barely made the benchmarks and then found the Leaf lacked an update that affected battery data. They had to get updated and wait a few days for the update to generate valid capacity results.
