Just wondered if anyone else was experiencing their Carwings Driving History not updating on the You+Nissan website?
Eco Trees section all up to date but mileage, trips, power used etc all stopped updating on Monday 20th (today being Sunday 26th). The car is doing about 40 - 50 miles daily so their should be plenty of information to report.

I see on a US site that some Leaf owners experienced a similar problem in December and that software updates were being mentioned.
Only picked the car up on Saturday last week (a used 2011 model) so I'm wondering if it is missing an update or is data delay a regular occurrence?

Nissan's web interface (and their app for that matter) are borderline disgraceful in terms of user experience / user interface, and do sometimes fail to update as well, not a great experience.

I tried to log on to check for you from my account, but after a flash of data that looked to be up to date, I just get this...

I have to own up to not using Carwings for history. I have found that it missed so many trip or recorded them incorrectly that I found it a frustrating experience. Pity because it was one of the featers I most liked before I got the car.

Perhaps I shold fire it up again and see if it has improved any :)

Yeah tried mine from the car the other day and it gave me stats from November!

I did an update then it gave me stats from the end of Feb which was a bit closer, but still not the start of March.

I haven't checked via the browser yet.

Just checked mine, I've only got 3 days recorded, 7-9th March, then nothing.

I press "ok" to allow the telematics usage for every journey.

Come on @NissanGB , you have to sort out carwings to actually make it fit for purpose and quickly. Otherwise those of us that have bought the LEAF with the carwings feature will have a very strong case for compensation & refund of part of the purchase price of the car seeing as though one of the car's main selling points hardly ever works.

My car data stopped from 9th March so I used the 'Chat' facility to find out what was going on. They acknowledged the problem and sent me an email on how to fix it. I've just now gone through the steps so don't know if it has fixed the issue yet but your'll welcome to try it as well:

Pretty sure those are the stock instructions to set up Carwings.
If it was right before then I don't think those will make any difference.
The driving history is broken for everyone at the moment.
They'll fix it in a week or so. Probably :)
