Nissan releases Android, BlackBerry versions of Leaf EV app

The Nissan LEAF app for smartphones – which allows LEAF owners to be in direct contact with their vehicle at all times – has launched for use on Blackberry and Android operating systems.

Following suit with the mission of all Nissan products, the app helps Nissan LEAF owners to manage and control many frequently used vehicle features directly from their smartphone.

The application is available to anyone with a Nissan LEAF, an active CARWINGS subscription, or an interest in better understanding the Nissan LEAF as a pioneer in electric vehicles.

With the application, also available on the iPhone since the car’s release in December 2010, users can access critical information points for their Nissan LEAF, such as charging, pre-cooling and heating, and monitoring the status of their vehicle.

Specifically, users are able to:

Check the state of the battery charge

Begin charging

Check when battery charge is complete

See estimated driving range

Turn the climate control system on or off

Note: Users can download app the Android Market or BlackBerry App World.
