Just watched an ad on channel 4, Nissan Juke "Nissan connect services requires subscription after year 3" ?? I guess this will apply across the board? What then for over the air updates etc ?
Strange - I've always checked the glossy literature when buying a Leaf (that's 4 now) and I've always concluded that the service was marketed as part of the deal I was paying for. If there was any mention of charging after 3 years it must have been buried deep in the text and I wonder what the legitimacy of introducing charging would be if that wasn't made explicitly obvious at the time..I think that’s always been the case. I’m on my third LEAF and even on the first one back in 2013 you only got three years included. I’ve always leased the cars for three years so it’s never been an issue for me.
I hear this a lot but it actually works reliably for me.In its current state it's not a service worth subscribing to, free or otherwise.
Wait until the cold, frosty mornings come. That's when a lot of people will be trying to use it to preheat their cars.Am I the only one it works for ?
Yes, they definitely have authentication problems - trying to log into the You+Nissan web portal only seems to have about a 50% chance of succeeding... I found that extremely frustrating when originally trying to get the car connected to the You+Nissan account although in the end someone at Nissan had to do it for me anyway as it was still added on the previous owners account, and instead of just deleting it off the old account they did all the setup for me as well includinging adding the 3 year subscription and naming the Leaf for me. (which annoyingly I can't rename)Worked for me most of the time with my Leaf 40 but you usually had to kill the app and restart it as the authentication was crap.
Haven't tried that feature and I have no interest in it. All I want to do in order of importance is:Send to car for a route in mapping has never worked for me. Tried many times.
I use the built in climate timer on weekday mornings so I'll be OK there. I mainly use the remote climate control after work before I get to the car, or sometimes on the weekend at random times when it's plugged in with the charge timer blocking charging.Wait until the cold, frosty mornings come. That's when a lot of people will be trying to use it to preheat their cars.
I haven't had a problem with it most of the time, but had a few problems on cold mornings in the winter. Annoyingly, that is the time that you most want it.
I seem to be subscribed to free until 2028 - I have no plans to keep the car that long so I'm set at least...If they start to ask for a payment to use it, I won't be subscribing.
Yes, me too. I'm sure that a lot of drivers who want to preheat the car are either at home or are within a short distance from the car.I’d rather be able to join the car to my WiFi and have the app discover it on my network and communicate with it directly
So the extension to 2028 is something new ? I've only had my Leaf 30 for just on two months and the offer to extend for free to 2028 was there as soon as I added it to the account, so of course I did it.After some of the comments I logged in to find that I could extend my YOU+ for free until 2028, so I did. Although it has regularly not worked over the last couple of years, I have found it working well for the last couple of months. I now have something to compare it to as I have the Renault app on my phone for my wife new Zoe. Parts of that don't work, so I'm wondering if they share a software team ?
Hi. many thanks, After some searching it appears there are 3 versions covering the Nissan EV ranges, and the 2019 models on line do not appear to have the options described here. I fully anticipate keeping the car for more than 8 years.Log into You+Nissan via the website, go into Nissan connect services and you'll probably see an option to subscribe for free for 8 years - everyone else here including me has found they are able to do this. If you can then unless you're planning to keep the car for more than 8 years who cares what the price would have been ?
If you find yourself dropped back to the login page when you return to the app try just force killing the app on you phone then launch it again. For me that completely skips having to retype a password and is fast as well.
