Could anybody collaborate why Nissan offers North America 2018 map version update to 2016+ models for $129, while older Leafs are stuck with old 2017 map update for $179?
You can see it here while selecting different model years for Leaf: http://nissan.navigation.com/home/en_US/NissanNA/USD
I tried to chat, but it connected to UK branch. Looks like phone and email is only option to talk with US branch. I think "HERE" is the company handling maps updates for Nissan.
A lot of finger pointing today between Here, Nissan EV and Nissan Consumer Affairs. After, pin-pong between those three, Nissan EV finally opened support case into outdated Nav maps for 2010-2017 Leafs (last updated 02/2016). All other models have recent maps. The Nissan EV consumer affair rep sighted the fact Leaf is limited range vehicle - it does not need any map updates, lol, Case closed by Nissan.
Although HERE accepted order for Leaf 2015 maps update, they have none in stock and have no clue what is going on with those maps, neither Nissan, all pointing fingers at each other.
