Interesting, on mine steps 7 and 8 are not needed. As soon as I hit "Join" it logs in and initiates an update.ecoobsessive wrote:To get an update in the Leaf iPhone app I have to click 8 times:
1. open app.
2. click update
3. click OK
4. "idle too long" OK
6. "join" .... "please wait"
7. click "update" again .... wait again
8. click "ok" again
Really, 8 times!!! I know this is what adric22 was complaining about above, but just to show how completely ridiculous the design of that app is.
And given grommet's comment about not having to do any of this, I wonder if we all have different versions of the app? I have the latest version (1.0.4) which was released in February, a few weeks before I got my LEAF. Either that or grommet always comes back to the app before the login times out (seems to be either 30 or 60 minutes?).
At any rate, I'm working on fixing this problem. At the SoCal meetup this past weekend I demoed LEAF Link, an app I've been working on to replace the Nissan app and to easily send addresses to the LEAF's navigation system for routing. Unfortunately I can't address any of the issues in HoustonFlier's original post because those would either require a firmware update in the car (fat chance) or possibly a hardware change as well. But I can (and do) fix the ridiculous multi-step refresh problem, as well as several other operations that require more touches than necessary in Nissan's app.
I will post a dedicated thread when it's ready for public beta, hopefully in another week or two. Here's a screenshot (already a bit out of date):
