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.


BACK TO TOP

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:
*Nissan LEAF: All model years 2011-2015 (SV & SL trims only), *Model 2016 LEAF is equipped with 3G TCU hardware and is not affected


BACK TO TOP

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.


BACK TO TOP

a. Pricing and other details are in the process of being finalized and we expect to be able to provide additional information in a notification to affected customers beginning in late summer 2016.
b. Nissan is planning to offer support to all affected customers with a 2G equipped vehicle who are using NissanConnect EV.
   i. Customers with MY2011-14 model year LEAF vehicles will be asked to contribute to the cost of the hardware upgrade.
   ii. For customers with MY 2015 vehicles, who choose to enroll and use or are using NissanConnect EV, Nissan plans to pay for the cost of parts and labor to upgrade the TCU.


BACK TO TOP

a. 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.


BACK TO TOP

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.


BACK TO TOP

No. The new TCU hardware will be designed to connect to the current AT&T 3G cellular network.


BACK TO TOP

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


BACK TO TOP

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)


BACK TO TOP

This is a voluntary action. Nissan plans to help support those clients interested in continuing the use of NissanConnect EV telematics program. No customer is required to upgrade the TCU. As such, there would be no additional charge if the lessee elects not to upgrade the hardware.


BACK TO TOP

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 LEAF models 11-15, the telematics icon on the vehicles navigation screen will not change. It will continue to read "CARWINGS".

Carrier has been manually changed to the incorrect setting.
Press the "MENU" button to the right of the navigation screen in the car.

No. If your vehicle is equipped with a Nissan Navigation system, the navigation system is unaffected by the discontinuation of AT&T's 2G cellular network.


BACK TO TOP

The upgrade will typically take under 2 hours to complete. However, your dealer may require additional time based on scheduling.


BACK TO TOP

The vehicles affected by discontinuation of the 2G cellular network are vehicles equipped with TCUs designed to connect to the 2G cellular network. The TCUs are working as designed. Once the 2G cellular network is discontinued on 12/31/16, an upgraded TCU and enrollment are required to access the NissanConnect EV service. (Functionality of service depends on availability of compatible cellular network. Compatible cellular network availability and connectivity not available in all areas at all times.)
