IMPORTANT FAQS REGARDING 2G CELLULAR NETWORK CHANGES AND IMPACT TO ACCESS TO NISSANCONNECT EV[*]
Like all devices, including vehicles, equipped to connect to a cellular network on the 2G access band, Nissan LEAF models with a 2G telematics control unit (TCU) will be unable to use or receive services from that device after 12/31/16. Without an upgrade to the TCU, NissanConnect EV features will not be available after that date and may be affected prior to that date depending upon AT&T’s proprietary decisions regarding shutting down their 2G network coverage.
2G means “Second Generation” and refers to digital cellular telephone technology; it is the name of a specific network that mobile telephone equipment uses to provide connectivity.
a. Nissan will contact affected customers directly; customers can contact Nissan LEAF Owner
Services at 1-877-664-2738 to verify if your vehicle is impacted. If you have a vehicle that has
navigation and is one of the model years listed below, your vehicle has a 2G TCU.
b. The following models are equipped with 2G TCUs:
i. Nissan LEAF: All model years 2011-2015 (SV & SL trims only),
• Model 2016 LEAF is not impacted
Nissan will communicate with affected customers with additional information regarding options for upgrading the TCU hardware in their vehicles once the hardware is readily available.
Pricing of the replacement TCU is not yet available, however Nissan plans to communicate the options for equipment upgrades for affected customers subscribed or wanting to subscribe to the NissanConnect EV telematics program.
AT&T will suspend new enrollments after June 30, 2016. If a Nissan LEAF with 2G equipment is purchased prior to June 30, 2016, the owner should be enrolled in NissanConnect EV on or prior to that date to ensure enrollment is able to be processed.
Once the 2G cellular network is discontinued, the TCU will no longer be able to access the NissanConnect EV telematics program features including Remote State of Charge and Climate Control.
The new TCU hardware will be equipped with the current 3G cellular network technology.
Nissan has studied how to integrate newer technology into your vehicle and developed solutions aimed at delivering a minimally invasive repair with the least inconvenience to customers. The 3G network is supported throughout the U.S. by AT&T and is expected to continue for years to come.
Nissan has learned that some customers may have received notification about the change in AT&T's cellular network in error. Only customers with a vehicle equipped with a Telematics Control Unit (TCU) designed to be compatible with the 2G cellular network supporting the NissanConnect EV program are impacted by this change. If you have a vehicle that has navigation and is one of the model years listed below, your vehicle has a 2G TCU. Customers can contact Nissan LEAF Owner Services at 1-877-664-2738 to verify if your vehicle is impacted.
The following Nissan LEAF models are equipped with 2G TCUs:
*Nissan LEAF: All model years 2011-2015 (SV & SL trims only)
This is a voluntary action. Nissan aims to support those clients interested in continuing the use of NissanConnect EV telematics program. No client is required to upgrade the TCU. As such, there would be no additional charge if the lessee elects not to upgrade the hardware.
On September 29, 2015, we rebranded CARWINGS to NissanConnect EV. NissanConnect EV replaced the CARWINGS name not only on the smartphone app, but on all communications regarding LEAF telematics. However, for the 2016 LEAF, the telematics icon on the vehicles navigation screen will read NissanConnect Services.
