Re: Use Google Maps to program a destination in your Leaf's

Alright, I give up!

I tried this feature a couple of weeks ago. Now how do I make it stop? There has to be a way that doesn't completely disable downloads.

After a few more days, you won't care that you have to completely disable downloads, yank out the telematics unit, set fire to it, and pour chicken blood in the glove box.

Anyone contact customer service about this issue? I wish I read about it before trying this earlier today, but luckily I expect to leave things on manual download for now...

There really should be a WARNING CAUTION on the first post of this thread to inform folks that any destination will haunt them for quite some time.

Yes - There has to be a fix for this. Every time I get in the car I hear the addresses over and over again. Is there any way to get the carwings to shut up. How can I delete the "Send to Carwings" addresses sent from Google.

My LEAF only syncs and "speaks" the Google locations if I ask it to do so.

Big old red warnings added to the beginning of the article and in the auto-downloaded section:

WARNING: If you setup auto-download, there's no known way to get it to stop prompting you. The suggestion is to not use auto-download until a fix is available from Nissan (if ever)

I changed the order of the feeds so that Nissan Info or ID is used and the auto download isn't the items always downloaded. Sorry I don't have a step by step walk through but it's in the Navigation Manual in the CarWings section.

The problem I'm having is after I make a map and save it to My Maps (Google) sending the "Saved" map does not show CAR anymore...

This feature seems to intermittently disappear from Google Maps. There are many threads about it. No one seems to know for sure why this is happening, but Google has apparently been made aware of the problem. As of today, it's gone.

It's too bad that we can't use an alternative service and/or have options as to which service we want to use. Mapquest offers a similar function, but only for vehicles with OnStar (GM) and Sync (Ford) systems.

i had the issue of SEVERAL features disappearing from Google Maps and most were resolved by updating Chrome which does not provide a popup or notification when an update is available. supposedly there is a symbol on the header somewhere. i have not noticed this symbol, but blogs report this.

now, i still have not retrieved the distance measuring tool and it is apparently gone for good. have not seen it in a long time or its been moved and i have not run across it yet
