I would like to buy one, if you have managed to squeeze it inside the box.

I am wondering, was there a public petition from the LEAF owners, requesting Nissan to remove, or at least improve, this insanely stupid and unnecessarily repeating "nag screen"? I bought my LEAF exactly one month and seven days ago, and the Carwings statistics shows, that I've made 238 trips, which means that I pressed the OK button at least 238 times in one month time! I really love the LEAF, and I intend to drive it at least 10 or 15 years (especially if after 5~7 years IBM manages to develop the 500-800 km range battery), and this means that I have to push this OK button another 42,840 times!

For example, the retarded Nissan lawyer who "invented" this nag screen can give the owners the following option: If the owner of the LEAF doesn't want to push the OK button zillions of times, he must sign this declaration in a notary/solicitor office, and send it via snail mail to the Nissan Inc. global headquarters in Nishi-ku, Yokohama, Japan:

"I, the undersigned owner of Nissan LEAF with VIN:____________ and Registration Number:___________, do hereby acknowledge that I understand and agree that my driving style is being monitored by Nissan Inc., and every time me and my wife drive out of the city to make sex in the car, Nissan Inc. knows and register this in the Carwings database.
Signature: __________
Date: ___/___/______

Notary/Solicitor stamp."

After receiving the signed and certified declaration in the Nissan Inc. headquarters the nag screen of the above mentioned owner will be removed remotely.

Or something like this.

In my 2013, I only have to press the OK button once every few weeks (month maybe?). I can't even remember when I pressed it last.

Yes, one of the improvements in the 2013.
One of the improvements customers suggested at the meeting at Google.
Those of us with 2011 or 2012 still push the button each time we start if we care about Carwings data, or ignore it if we don't.
If Nissan starts charging $100 per year for Carwings like their survey suggested most of us will start ignoring it.

Edit Correction: Year instead of month.

$100/month?!!?!? Which survey are you referring to? http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=16357" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; which I'd heard about, said the survey had these choices for annual prices: $140, $170, and $200, all of which way seem way too high, for the functionality provided...

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

so. in 2 years any update on this project?

can this touch ok hack be purchased or not?

does it jive with the bluetooth message? I don't use the MFD anymore (tablet mounted over it) but I do use bluetooth to link in my phone and audio from the tablet and would LIKE for the website to start showing me data (apparently if you do not hit ok to this nothing gets sent to the website.)

Is the flash on the CPU or is it external? Hopefully it'll be easy to get at :)

Anything like JTAG or an ISP port on the board?
Yes, it's external flash, and it appears there are several debug/programming ports, one easily accessible on the rear of the unit without even needing to dismantle anything.

You can see the 2 SDRAM chips to the upper left, the Flash lower left, the CPU middle, and the lower right chip is an FPGA.

-Phil
Could you enlighten me as to which of the ports on the back of unit are able to read the flash chip on the nav unit. I'm eager to get into the code on here but struggling to get started without ripping my unit apart.
