So now that I disconnected the battery cable and I was able to get it logged back in after leaving for 1 hr and reattaching, the car is again able to download everything it needs. However my app 3/4 works. Almost everything on it works, have logged out of it too and back in, and then I can get battery status, kind of. I can remote start the vehicle, see eco results... I CAN NOT just refresh it and get a battery status. I have to perform some other function on the app first that requires connection and let it gets its update, then logout of the app and back in again, and then I see the battery status as of the time I performed that previous action or connection. If I try to refresh or update the battery status again at that point it just doesn't work.
(Funny enough, there is a little app in the iPhone app store called EVA , and that can connect fine now and I can get battery status that way and also precondition car from it. But there is something not working in the new nissanconnect EV app. Also when I add the alexa skill onto my echo, it has the same problem, can never get the battery status.
