All new look - some of the issues fixed


First warning - the new app discards the login credentials you may have saved with the old one - so be prepared to re-enter them when upgrading!

We’ll never know what major release 5 looked like - we went straight from version 4-point-something to version 6, and hours later it’s replaced by 6.04.

The interface looks all-new as advertised, and the startup delay _seems_ shorter. Any UI activity which entails communication with their servers and/or your vehicle puts a (mercifully brief) blue animated overlay over the interface. As noted by countless other reviewers, it seems the lengthy delay to refresh vehicle status is baked in to the infrastructure, even with the “new” 3G cellular modem behind the dash of my LEAF.

Minor annoyances with the app:

Notwithstanding the “save” function, the notification settings UI (email/push/text) refuses to permit changes. (I guess the web portal is the only way to update that.)

If I set the climate control timer via its widget, it gets set correctly, but ALWAYS logs me off immediately.

Petty gripe - the info tip for one of the settings, battery heater, is stuck on French.

On the plus side, there are now separate buttons for starting AND stopping climate control - improved from the version 4 app single button which would get out of sync with the present state.

All in all, I’m grateful that Nissan seems to have a new effort going on this app so long neglected.

Should Have Expected This Level of Quality from Nissan


This app is embarrassingly bad from the start. Click in the name text field for setting up an account, and the keyboard open pushing the text field right off the screen. There’s no auto-complete, which apple does for you. There’s no option to take a picture of your vin instead of typing it, which there are open source projects for right now. Then, once you’ve managed to enter all this, once you agree to the terms and conditions, it fails and takes you back to the main menu; at which point, nothing is filled out or auto-fills.

I’ve tried to fill this out twice, and received the same generic error twice. It’s clear to me that this app was never properly tested before being released. I like my car, but every interaction I’ve had with anything Nissan has been awful. I will NEVER get another Nissan product again. Saving a little money isn’t worth the constant disappointment.

Nissan Finally put some time into this app


February 2018 Update:

The new app largely addresses all the issues with the old app. It functions 95% of the time now. Network functions with car are still rather slow but at least reliable.

25 Feb 2016 Update:

Security flaw in app. So Nissan decided to disable app instead of fixing it.

30 October Update:

Nissan has FINALLY updated their app and added telematics information. Jury is still out on actual connection reliability with vehicle.

28 June Update: After evaluating this app for a month I can say that the "network communications issue" has been fixed. Additionally the climate control feature works 9 times out of 10. Bottom line is this dated app at least works the vast majority of the time. However it's long overdue for an extensive update/new features.

06 May Update: Don't get excited, nothing changed in the app except for the colors. Perhaps the stability has improved, to soon to tell.

Old Review:

While its a nice feature to be able to turn on your heat/AC from your smartphone it rarely works on this app. Frequent error message: "Network connection lost." Whatever that means. App also struggles to consistently update vehicle status when requested.
