LeafLink is a smart phone app which enables you to control your Nissan Leaf in multiple ways. It enables you to control the A/C so it can cool shortly before you go out to get in it (so that you are not burnt by scorching summer heat). You can also turn on the heater before going out to the Leaf so that you don’t have to sit in the cold.

It Allows You to Control Your Nissan Leaf Charger

LeafLink also enables users to start the charging process or set a charger timer remotely. It also tells you the driving range with or without the air conditioner on, as well as the state of charge (often called SOC).

One benefit of the charge timer is that it enables users to take advantage of TOU (time-of-use) electricity pricing. Electricity is sometimes cheaper at night in the United States, so the Leaf can be programmed to charge at least every night during what are called off-peak hours.

Navigation Features

  • You can send addresses to the Leaf’s navigation system.
  • You can find charging stations on a map.
  • You can find places on a map.

Oh Yeah…

While this program is convenient, it is of course only useful to those that can use it, and it only supports Apple iOS devices. It would be far more helpful, and its sales revenue could be increased by preparing an Android  version (Android devices comprise over 68% of the smart phone OS market, as of August 8, 2012).
