It seems a lot of people (in Vancouver at least) are buying US imported LEAFs. From what I understand, the GPS/Nav works fine, but CARWINGS does not. Has anyone successfully tried to switch the telematics unit, or gotten a Rogers SIM card, or have it converted/activated through a Canadian dealership directly?
There seems to be quite a few Nav functions tied to CARWINGS, so I had some related questions:
- Do you get error messages because CARWINGS doesn't connect?
- Does CARWINGS connect when you visit the States?
- Does the map get updated via CARWINGS, or just the charging station locations?
I read about a link to a replacement CARWINGS-like system here: http://openvehicles.com
, which you'd buy a new telematics unit for just over $100. Has anyone used that?
