[Oeva-list] NissanConnect - Carwings not working?

IMHO - The whole scheme Nissan uses to do it’s communication to/from the car for the commands like heat is riddled with problems.  It’s way too complex and uses too many complex parts that all have to work:  
your cell phone
your cell phone’s tower
your cell phone’s connection to the internet
the internet
Nissan’s web site
Nissan’s various servers that serve the CarWings and other services
Communication between about 3 Nissan servers
Your car’s cell connection to AT&T
AT&T’s tower
AT&T’s connection to the internet
the internet again
Nissan’s connection to your car though all that

I’d be really happy if there were a switch in the car that would just frigging turn on the heat.

After rebooting my phone and changing the settings back, I was able to turn on the heat again.  So I guess I don’t know if it’s Nissan Connect that’s glitchy or my Samsung phone.

> If you use the Leaf remote access could you check to see if it works for you?  Mine has stopped working.  The car talks to Nissan and does everything I can think of but a request from the web/phone to update or turn on the heat fails.  Since I’m going to Seattle tomorrow I’d really like it fixed.  It’s the only way a 2011 Leaf can get heat while charging.  
> If you try it, could you let me know if it works and your car’s year and VIN.  I’d like to be able to call back and tell them I’m not the only one having the problem.  They told me there was no way anyone would look at my problem for weeks.  Isn’t Nissan great?
