I really hope Nissan makes a change to prevent this and adds some other anti-theft measures. Hopefully the utility logged a formal complaint w/Nissan corporate on this. I think everyone else who's been victimized should.
Hopefully word eventually gets out to thieves about the copy protection and about the cards being useless on other Leafs (if I'm not mistaken, given the DRM that seems to be employed here.)
Well I can understand them protecting their proprietary info (the maps), even though navs are ubiquitous and nobody really wants their out-of-date "IP" anyway.
But the real stupidity is in Nissan making the other functions dependent on the DRM. The radio? Really, Nissan?
