In addition to Event Data Recorders (EDRs)
mentioned in the LEAF Owner’s Manual, this
vehicle is equipped with electronic modules that
monitor, control and record data concerning
various vehicle systems, including the motor,
batteries, braking and electrical systems. Other
electronic modules record information concern-
ing driving conditions, including idling, braking,
acceleration, trip and other related data, in-
formation about your use of the car and its
features such as air conditioner or headlight
usage, diagnostic trouble codes, vehicle char-
ging, vehicle speed, direction and/or location.
Some of this data is stored by the vehicle for use
during vehicle servicing. Other data concerning
your vehicle’s operation and performance is
wirelessly transmitted by cellular connection
through the vehicle onboard telematics system
upon vehicle start-up or at other intervals to
NISSAN. This data may be used by NISSAN for
various purposes, including: to provide you with
TMservices (refer to the CAR-
WINGSTMsection of this manual for details);
troubleshooting; evaluation of your vehicle’s
quality, functionality and performance; analysis
and research by NISSAN designed to, among
other things, optimize performance of future
electric vehicles including improvements in
future battery life; to offer you new or additional
products or services; and as otherwise may be required by law. Such data may be shared with
NISSAN’s parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, suc-
cessors or assignees; authorized NISSAN certi-
fied LEAF dealers; NISSAN’s marketing
partners; your fleet company, if your vehicle is
a fleet vehicle; your rental company, if your
vehicle is a rental vehicle; and third party service
providers such as cellular, information systems
and data management providers.
State laws allow access and use of data
recorded by vehicle devices with the consent
of the vehicle owner or pursuant to subscription
agreement. While you are not required to allow
such access and use, if you do not so agree
NISSAN may be unable under applicable law to
activate the vehicle telematics system in your
vehicle, and certain features of your vehicle
which are dependent on vehicle telematics will
not operate as intended or designed. These may
include features such as automatic charging
station map updates, remote battery state of
charge check, charging complete notice, remote
plug in reminder, remote charging on, remote
climate control on, drive route planning, driving
tips to improve range, driving history, billing
simulation, ECO ranking, ECO forest, mainte-
nance reminders, etc. Other features that may
be developed and offered by NISSAN in the
future may also not function without telematics
TMtelematics services are provided
by NISSAN pursuant to a subscription services
agreement covering your vehicle. This agree-
ment is necessary for all owners. This agree-
ment, and an explanation of its terms and
conditions, can be found at the NISSAN Own-
er’s Portal webpage. Further, the operator of the
vehicle must also touch [OK] on the Navi screen
to indicate assent each time he or she starts the
car. If you decide at any time that you do not
want your vehicle to transmit data to NISSAN,
you can deactivate the telematics account
associated with this vehicle by canceling the
subscription services agreement by visiting the
NISSAN Owner’s Portal Webpage or calling
NISSAN at 1-877-NOGASEV (1-877-664-
2738) . The service can be reactivated later
upon request if you choose. Simply visit the
same website or call the number above. Alter-
natively, you can turn off the transmission of
certain categories of data through the use of
settings found in the Navigation system under
TM, Vehicle Information
Sharing with NISSAN. Note, turning off “Vehicle
Information Sharing with NISSAN” will only
disable the automatic sharing of information at
vehicle start-up. Certain categories of data may
still be transmitted if vehicle telematics features
are accessed either in the vehicle or remotely.
Your agreement to the transmission and use of
Page 163 of 275
data by NISSAN can be provided in various
ways. The vehicle is equipped with a “pop up”
screen on the vehicle navigation system that will
ask for your consent to this data transfer. A
version of the following message will appear:
“Pursuant to subscription agreement, your ve-
hicle wirelessly transmits recorded vehicle data
to NISSAN for various purposes, including
TMservices, product evaluation,
research and development. By touching [OK],
you consent to the transmission and use of your
vehicle data. See Owner’s Manual or NISSAN
Owner’s portal webpage for terms and details.”
If you touch [OK], your vehicle will transmit data
as designed in connection with the vehicle
telematics system. If you touch [Decline] your
vehicle will not transmit data. However, the
telematics features referenced above, and per-
haps others, will not be available to you. The
vehicle’s static navigation system will remain
operational, and you will be able to access your
radio and climate controls.
Telematics features are dependent on cellular
data transmission. Some areas may have limited
or no cellular connectivity, resulting in a loss or
interruption of data transmission and, as a result,
certain features may be temporarily unavailable.
Even if areas with good signal reception, cellular
connectivity can be adversely affected by things
such as tall buildings, apartments, tunnels, underground parking, mountainous areas, etc.
Even if the signal strength bar of the in-vehicle
data communication module indicates good
reception, connectivity may be disrupted. This
does not indicate a malfunction. Operate the
system again after a few minutes to restore
are offered as a convenience to the vehicle
owner. NISSAN is not responsible for, and
owner assumes all risk of, interruptions in
service or errors based on incomplete or
inaccurate data. CARWINGS
tions may be received at a verified e-mail
address or by SMS/text messaging-enabled
mobile phone. Standard text rates and/or data
usage may apply depending on your carrier.
If your vehicle’s telematics account is active, and
you are not the original owner, please contact
NISSAN at the website or phone number above
as soon as possible to update the telematics
enrollment information. Upon sale of the vehicle,
please contact NISSAN at the website or phone
