I mean the icon on the car's touchscreen. I do have the app. The instructions I got from the Nissan portal say to turn the CAR on, and then select the Nissan Connect app and enter the one time codes. There is no Nissan Connect icon on the car's screen.

Of course, a 2018 will be different, but possibly similar to a 2015, where the id/password go into

That makes sense, and also contradicts what Nissan sent me. However, the great salesman I dealt with has been working behind the scenes, and someone at Nissan apparently did it for me, remotely. I now have access to at least the EV services, as of two days ago. So there is NO Nissan Connect icon on the car's screen?

Re: Please Report 2018 Leaf Defects Here

I have a Leaf SV, with the Tech package, made in March 2018. Only two non-critical issues that I've noticed:

The backup camera doesn't display the steering wheel lines - the ones that move when you turn the wheel. Old 2011 Leaf had that, and the owner's manual for this model mentions it.

I like to put my mp3 music on a USB stick and play those files in the car. Most of the time, when I turn the car off, this Leaf forgets where I left off and often starts playing the first song it finds on the stick (sometimes even if I had the radio, or nothing else, on instead). Very annoying and difficult to find where I left off in the middle of 200+ songs. Has happened with two different USB sticks now.

Anyone else have these issues?

Just to confirm that you have a defect: my 2018 SL with Tech does have the steering lines displayed.

Press the camera button on the dash, there should be an option to toggle the lines, that's the only option you will have on the SV.

Dang - it had actually slipped my mind for the moment that Nissan has screwed SV drivers out of the Around View. Ironic, considering the complaining I do about it.

My 15 and 18 S models both pick up where they left off. Strange yours doesn't.

Of course! Duh. I actually tried that the day I got the Leaf but saw the word "on" written there and quickly decided it was on. Forgot it needed to be actively selected. Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback, I guess I'll see if the dealer can do something about it.
