Dave, thanks for digging this up. If the Washington state law is indeed the sort of law that's causing this anti-consumer nonsense, then I suggest Nissan make the effort to alter their software such that it will nag every time only for driver-experiences in those states where the laws are that bad, and not nag each time where the law does not call for this ridiculousness. There is great GPS and what-not on-board. It should be do-able, if not easy. Also, as mentioned a few posts back, I also suggest a permanent screen in one of the settings areas where one can change one's response (maybe this is already there).DaveinOlyWA wrote:Rich on Seattle FB group had a comment on the "i agree" issue
now, why it does not apply to GM? dont know...."home field" bias maybe?A reason you need to press the OK button is to authorize transmission of data for the EV Project. Home charging stations were provided free and install costs subsidized along with paying for DCFC inlet for EVP residential participants in exchange for providing data. But the other reason is Washington and other states' consumer protection laws which require the vehicle owner to OK the transmission of data. For example, in Washington, the vehicle owner owns the data and others cannot access except "With the consent of the owner, given for a specific instance of access, for any purpose" or if there is a subscription service. There is some ambiguity in the law and how it covers data transmitted by a person using the vehicle who is not the owner.

ah then again, maybe its Sunday and I have watched too much football
Basically, I guess when Nissan says ""Sorry, the lawyers are making us do it, and we've done all we can on the matter, and that's that" I do not take their word for it. It seems like too much of a needless fail on top of what seem like otherwise mostly good pro-customer choices.
