However, out in the car, I tried to get CarWings to connect but no success. The screen seemed to be saying "re-enter your Nissan PIN and Password" but I have done that to no apparent effect. Back home, NissanConnect now says my "EV PIN and VIN do not match" so it looks like the TCU was talking to NissanConnect but not sending the appropriate handshake stuff. Either there is still something astray at Nissan's end or maybe I do have to insert my VIN into the new TCU (as above).
Other forums seem to say that it may take 48-72 hours or so for the new 3G data to filter through NissanConnect and get reliable comms established. Will see what happens.
Ah ok.. Are you on the Canadian NissanConnect or US one?
I may follow you in your footsteps.
Update: I purchased one on Ebay... $248 includes shipping/import fees/taxes to my door in Surrey. I already had the 2G unit out on the weekend to check it, and will be able to switch it quickly. I'll snap pictures of the 3G TCU, since I think there's an IMEI number on it etc, that they may need?
