1) if you install a valid SIM card (from a European carrier)--and create your CW login, etc.--then you should be OK. The modem itself won't need to be updated until they turn off GPRS/EDGE in Europe (which will probably be AFTER they do it in the US).
2) as for the SD card, you will need to go to a/the dealer and have them (custom) order a new one specific to your car. Hopefully they'll be able to get one fairly quickly because--you're right--nothing much works without it.
Thanks for the quick reply.
This would be more than great. The SD-card can't be that expensive and the SIM-card is also no problem. I will get the new SIM card today.
However there has been lots of discussion concerning the differences between the US and European versions, and how much difficulties people have had when importing US Leafs to Europe. The TCU unit (with SIM-card) has been told to be different, and and also the EU map card is told to be not compatible with the US car.
Can anyone from Europe (with US car) can verify that they have a working Carwlngs?
And about the maps; I've read that You really need a car specific SD Map card. However they sell some OEM cards here;http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OEM-2011-2012 ... 35d0be61f3
How can these work if they need to be car specific? It's less than 100 usd, attempted to try with one of these
