Ratings and Reviews
Very slow, but works
Unlike some of the reviewers here, I’ve never had reliability issues with this app. Being able to climate control my 2019 Leaf before I get in – even with my garage door closed – is great, and every driver will demand this feature in 10 years. However, the app is painfully slow. On my iPhone XS, it takes 10 seconds to login. Then if I want to see the battery status, I hit the refresh button and wait 35 seconds. Switching to another app during these delays resets the process, so that I’ll have to wait through them again. Tesla’s app can do both of the steps in under 4 seconds.
In short, the app has good features, but the implementation needs significant work.
Remote climate control totally unreliable
After collecting our luggage after a 2.5 flight, I was pleased that I remembered to open this app and turn on the Climate Control so that our 2 year old and 4 year old kids, not to mention my wife and I, would have a heat respite waiting for us when the shuttle arrived at airport parking. Instead, we arrived to an oven. The outside air was registering on the dash as 104° and the interior was probably hotter. Melt-downs ensued as we stood outside the car waiting for it to cool down. Usually my wife drives this car and I drive a Tesla Model 3. If I had recalled how unreliable the remote climate control was on our 2016 Leaf, I would have gone to pickup the car myself. When will Nissan wake up and improve this app. The rating is terrible. Maybe we’ll replace the Leaf with another Model 3 at the end of the lease instead of exercising the option to buy. I had hoped maybe they would make some significant improvements over the course of our lease but that has unfortunately not been the case.
Did you design for screenshots?
Over the top, slow animations get in the way of using the app. It looks great in places for marketing screenshots. But it’s a pretty poor user experience. Clearly UX was not a priority over marketing.
The app works though. Mostly-ish. But the slowness and lack of fast refreshing (does it only work on some slow cellular connection and not when car is connected to my WiFi?).
