Wow: I must get going WAY faster than you :o
I don't set the e-brake, turn VSP off (only when I'm going slow around a crowd of people--which is what you're SUPPOSED to use it for), and hardly ever use ECO.

Technically that's when the cabin temp is less than 60 degrees, not the outside temp. You can get general outside air flow by hitting Mode so the arrow changes from feet to face (or face & feet). Without the fan on this provides some air at ambient temp.
I found that the passive air flow was almost nonexistent except at high speeds. Since I live in four seasons country, being able to turn the heater off and still use the fan and vents was a big deal to me. Preheating while plugged-in is all I need for comfort most of the time but a fogged windshield can be a problem. The foot/defrost workaround didn't suffice for me.

So, count me as one Ingineer's early, and very happy, CC mod customers. It was just as easy to install as his video said it was. I'd be surprised if Nissan didn't fix this known glitch in the 2013 model, but one never knows what will happen.

Can someone please remind me what I'm missing out on if i hit "decline" or just go straight to the radio or map or other screen? (which i think is taken as a decline).
The car has not spontaneously burst into flames. In fact I'm not noticing anything different.

Thanks

Carwings won't have data on the web site about your miles/kwh, etc. I stopped using it a month after I got my Leaf, and I have more battery capacity remaining than most people. Perhaps hitting OK too much eats into your battery capacity? ;)

That might be true BUT if you read the disclaimer it has nothing to do with safety. It's just a privacy agreement. Do cars with OnStar require you to press accept before your GPS coordinates are sent to them in the event of an air bag deployment??

This complaint is of course valid. It's a stupid message, shouldn't be there every time, and everybody including Nissan knows it's annoying. I am sure it's only there because some lawyers forced it in. There's no way anybody on end-user testing thought it was good to force us to OK each time.

That said, it's much less annoying than the back-up beep in the current gen Prius, which would throw me into a mad, inhuman rage each time I heard it (I never got it turned off, unfortunately).

I am sick and tired of pressing "ACCEPT" for Carwings to gather data about your car and usage patterns. Nissan keeps promising they are looking at things, but it is a privacy issue so they havent fixed it yet.

If they wont help us resolve the issue... Why do we continue to allow them to gather this data? Let their data collection go dark for awhile, starting on Black Friday lets send Nissan a message.

Who's in?

Starting Black Friday, always decline the Carwings T&C screen in your LEAF!

On the Prius there is a disclaimer that exits on its own after like 3 seconds on the map screen.

i fail to see why we cannot accept Carwings as a setting. doing it every time is frustrating to me because I want Carwings to record me. if it helps Nissan develop the LEAF, i am all for it. if they can use the data to determine better charging locations, better instrumentation, better whatever, OK! lets do it!

but i fail to understand why some people flip out over it as if they are allowing whoever to spy on them especially people on this board. the very act of participating in a public forum is giving up a level of anonymity

someone on FB wants to do a "black out Carwings" day on Nov 23rd to protest having to accept or decline on every start up

Well, it is pretty hard to miss - it is the message you see on the NAV screen every time you turn on the car.
All electric - red LEAF, green Tesla S. No ICE.
