Nissan unveils Blackberry, Android app for All-Electric Nissan LEAF


The Nissan LEAF application for smartphones which allows
LEAF owners to be in direct contact with their vehicle at all times has
launched for use on Blackberry and Android operating systems.


Following suit with the mission of all Nissan
products, the app provides bold and innovative technology for Nissan LEAF
owners to manage and control many frequently used vehicle features directly
from their smartphone.


The application is available to anyone with a Nissan
LEAF, an active CARWINGS subscription, or an interest in better understanding
the Nissan LEAF as a pioneer in electric vehicles.


With the application, also available on the iPhone since
the car’s release in December 2010, users can access critical information
points for their Nissan LEAF, such as charging, pre-cooling and heating, and
monitoring the status of their vehicle.


“Nissan understands that telematics and other
communication services are important for consumers. By providing accessibility
and functionality to the Nissan LEAF through all major smartphone platforms, we
are truly delivering ‘Innovation for All,” said Trisha Jung, director, Vehicle
Connected Services, Nissan North America.  


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.
