The Nissan LEAF smartphone app recently launched for the Blackberry and Android operating systems. The app, which has been available on the iPhone since December 2010, allows Nissan LEAF owners to manage and control many vehicle features directly from their smartphone.
With the application, users can access critical information points for their Nissan LEAF, such as charging, pre-cooling and heating, and monitoring the status of their vehicle. Specifically, users are able to:
• Check the state of the battery charge
• Begin charging
• Check when battery charge is complete
• See estimated driving range
• Turn the climate control system on or off
“Nissan understands that telematics and other communication services are important for consumers,” said Trisha Jung, director, Vehicle Connected Services, Nissan North America. “By providing accessibility and functionality to the Nissan LEAF through all major smartphone platforms, we are truly delivering ‘Innovation for All.’”
Nissan was recognized in Detroit at the 2011 International Telematics Update Awards as the “2010-2011 Industry Newcomer” for its CARWINGS telematics service, which includes the smartphone app. For more information on CARWINGS and the Nissan LEAF application, visit http://www.NissanUSA.com.
