Has there been any news on the new App that will accompany the Ariya? I use the Nissan Connect app with my 2018 Leaf and quite frankly I find it to be terrible. I am wondering if Nissan plans to have a smartphone app that will seamlessly integrate with this new vehicle.

Welcome to the forum @Pennywise! Are you a current Leaf owner?
Thanks for the welcome.

I'm driving a Toyota hybrid at the moment but have registered my interest in the Ariya with both Nissan and my local dealership.

I got the info about the apps from the Nissan site during my research.

I'm doing as much research as I can about the Ariya as reliability is very important to me and Nissan doesn't compare well against Toyota in local reviews.

At the moment my heart is saying Ariya, but my head is advising caution.

According to local press the 2nd gen Leaf isn't as reliable as the 1st gen. However, as the Ariya will be built in Japan I'm hoping that the famous Japanese reliability will come to the fore and, when added to Nissan's years of EV and SUV experience, will produce a 5* SUV!

I can barely wait to see the car in the flesh.

WIth my 2015 Leaf, I'm using the EV&Services app on my Android smartphone, and the NissanConnect webpage available thru the Nissan Owners website. Both work, but like you're saying, they are fairly bad. Poor reliability, and very minimal functionality. But by far my biggest complaint is that the battery percentage / range estimate reported by both the Android app, and the web app disagree with the actual percentage/range displayed in the car. Like right now for instance, the apps say the battery is at 33%, but the car indicates 27%. This disagreement is consistent, and isn't a simple offset. Sometimes it differs by only 1%, or sometime by as much as 5 or 6%. This is far too much to be a simple rounding error.

This is the kind of thing that concerns me about the Ariya. 'Good enough' may have worked on the Leaf, but it's not going to work on the Ariya. That thing needs to be where Tesla is in terms of software quality, or nearly so; otherwise Nissan is done. They've got one chance to get this right in my opinion.

The leaked Nissan Z order sheet shows "NissanConnect® Services with WI-FI Hotspot" as an option. Has anyone heard if the WI-FI Hotspot feature is going to be included in the Ariya as well? Presumably this will a monthly service similar to the one offered by Tesla, which provides web browser and connected apps (think Spotify) to run on the onboard infotainment. But unlike Tesla, Nissan's feature suggests that it support a local WIFI hotspot, allowing connected devices (like tablets, etc) to connect to the car's WIFI. This would be yet another selling point against Telsa, and would be a feature I'd definitely pay for.
