You have probably done this, but just to be certain, under where it says you accepted the agreement do you have:

CARWINGS™ PIN: xxxxx
CARWINGS™ Password: xxxxx
(I replaced my info above with the "x's")

Did you then put that info in the car's Carwing's menu information?

If you have also done that then maybe try calling Carwings in the US. I called them and told them I was from Canada but I had an imported Leaf and they helped me set it up (I got an error saying my car was already registered which they fixed when I emailed them my registration papers). They told me it won't work in Canada but I read them what was said in the thread which they said was news to them. So don't be discouraged if they tell you it won't work. Tell them you just want to make sure everything is fine from their end to see if that's the problem.

Hello,
I re-checked everything and found on the portal that my car did not register.
I did input my login in the car but it does not seems to register. I have the crossed antenna symbol displayed for a few seconds after inputing my login.

The portal is reporting that the car login has not been done.

We drove to Vermont in order to retry but probably not far enough or the car may not have a sim. I need to check the module for the sim.

Has anyone from Quebec succed using Carwings with a US Leaf?

What does it say for the "Carrier" in your car's Carwing's menu? Mine says AT&T. If you don't have a sim, then that may be blank. In BC, AT&T roams on Rogers. My Tesla also uses AT&T and is always roaming in Canada -- which is great because we can go the States and get internet, but it doesn't work on US Tesla cars in Canada presumably because Tesla has disabled roaming for them. People in Quebec with Teslas have it working (but Tealas are 3G), and people with AT&T phones can also obviously roam in Quebec. One other thought is that the Leaf uses 2G and maybe Quebec's AT&T roaming partner has already got rid of 2G?

The section "Carrier" is empty, I will open the glove box to check for a sim.

Has getting Carwings running this way worked for Japanese (MY2011-MY2012) LEAFs, or just for the MY13-MY15 ones built in the USA?

Mine is a 2012 SL imported from the US into Canada, and Carwings is now working following the procedure set out in this thread.

I was a bit concerned about the Carwings update today with my US imported Leaf but I followed the update procedure all went well and it's working fine.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread. Have any Canadians who imported a US Leaf but not upgraded the TCU to 3G still got their car wings working? Mine just stopped talking to the server a couple days ago, around the same time AT&T shut down their 2G band. I was hoping the roaming on Rogers 2G would still work despite the AT&T side going down. Anyone having the same issue?
