It is great that your remote app is working. As for the text alerts is is due to the fact that canadian cell companies are not listed on the us account listing. So I just get email alerts as my telus account works.

I tried to register my car in Quebec with a USA Carwings account and it fails.
I drove to the border near Vermont (Richford), not better. I will plan a trip to Burlington to try their ChaDemo and try Carwings again.

Did you mean signing up on the account fails, or the CARWINGS connection from the car fails? If it was a registered car with a valid VIN originating from the US, it should work.. or, at least, it has been working for a few of us. Technically, our telematics would be the same as yours if you have a US Leaf. By the way, I chose AT&T as the phone carrier.

NOTE: When I spoke to CARWINGS support on the phone, they were surprised that it works, and although it seems to be working for some people, they don't or can't "officially" say that it works. However, she was helpful in making sure I signed up with a US account.

Just so everyone knows-Motorized autodirect in Victoria where I got my 2011 last year is now selling 2011 for under $20.000 canadian. That is $5000 less than I paid last year.

The Vin registration worked. I have received the Carwings car login. When I do the car connexion it tries for a minute and tells me to enter the login again. The no connexion symbol is displayed for a few seconds onlybat the end.

tivollix: it's possible you're missing the SIM card entirely. Have you checked for that?

For android users, there's an app called "leaf manager" which supposedly connects to either the Canadian or U.S. server.

If someone can try this out and report back whether or not it works, that would be great, otherwise, I should be getting my leaf in the next few weeks and I'll give it a shot.

Thank you for the information.
I tried to use it and tells me "Carwings setup not complete, login to owner's portal website"

2 possible problems : My Leaf is not able to connect to the network in the Montreal area or it is missing some configuration / sim.

I also had this problem. Go to the owner's portal and click on documents or agreements or something like and accept the terms of the agreement, then it will work.

I joined this site just to thank the posters on this thread for getting Carwings working on my US Leaf which was imported into Canada (and to assist tivollix since I had the same problem). It's great to have it working now! I bought the Leaf for my daughter. I can now keep an eye on the battery remotely; and she can warm up the car remotely -- while plugged in -- for the coming winter. I'm using Leaf Manager on my Android (paid $5 for the pro version). My daughter has an iPhone but rather than going the US App route, I also installed Leaf Manager on her phone and it works great!

Thanks All and especially EVKen!!!

Thanks a log for your tip. I checked, I already had it:

CARWINGS™ Agreement ACCEPTED 08/07/2014

I'll give an update if I find what's wrong.
