I know you can do all that if you have NissanConnect, which did not come with this car. I watch the Chargepoint app and I can see approx how many miles it's adding, but it would be nice to see when it hits 80% or so and I can "stop" the charging from the app. Otherwise it's just a guess.
Not a huge deal, but I'm just wondering if there's an app that can connect to the car without Nissan's Connection?
PS- we were told it's not a good idea to charge the battery beyond 80%. Is that a good tip? Obviously, if we need to go on a long trip, we'll want to charge to 100%, but that's rare.
Good morning. Maybe I am not understanding but don't all Leafs have the ability to connect to Nissan Connect? It it not just an APP??
If you have a Juice Box EVSE you can also stop and start charging.
