Ah I didn't know that......I see that you need a vin number to sign up for it but the GT-R isn't included in the drop down list.
I've downloaded the app too but the reviews were horrific!
Indeed it flashes up Nissan Connect but it's in no way as "connected" as we might have hoped! Certainly not the version that the Juke, Qashqai et al get. No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.Ah I didn't know that......
Guessing then I think they might be offering something like BMW ConnectedDrive where you have a little app to do random crap on your car with?
TynemouthGTR can probably better answer!
I've commented on the Nissan Connect further below in a separate post just now, but re. your other questions:Agree, definitely the favoured option, same as my current Golf. As you are seemingly the nominated forum test bed for the new tech can you help in any of my current curiositities?!!:clap:
The apps/connect services? Just curious of the iphone compatibility and requirements. I guess as it's not full blown Carplay that only certain apps that will display on the MFD, does it work well? I understand the iPhone must also be usb connected not just bluetooth for this to work? iMessage or Whatsapp messages available on the screen?
Not sure if you've completed the optimisation yet but have you tinkered with the exhaust valve button, if so much difference?
This active noise cancellation, do you notice anything? The manual says the speakers and sub will generate a noise cancelling errr, noise (they say sound) to minimise engine booming, ok??!
Finally any early irritations or gripes, or just ear to ear grins!!??:thumbsup:
Cheers for the info, much appreciated. Failing to see the progress on the nav at the moment! Yes road noise is far less intrusive with MPSS which I changed toHaving had a demo for a weekend and getting to grips with it let me try answer some of these.
iPhone works fine over Bluetooth for streaming music (Spotify) and for taking phone calls. The Bluetooth music streaming didn't display the Album Art but it did display the Artist - Song. Not amazing looking either. The NissanConnect system is pretty shit.
CarPlay - LOL. Not a chance. The NissanConnect system is pretty shit... did I mention that?
no iMessage/WhatsApp etc display as that would require CarPlay for the Apple integration.
I couldn't even find the valve controller but didn't really look for it so can't help you there
The road noise can be bad but I'd blame the stupid run flat tyres the car comes with!
Top man, glad it's putting a smile on your face! Yes any other bits and pieces you feel are worth sharing please carry on.I've commented on the Nissan Connect further below in a separate post just now, but re. your other questions:
- Yes, I had my optimization done over two weeks ago at NHPC Newcastle. Not even bothered with the exhaust valve to be honest, seems a gimmick if i'm not mistaken and everything i've seen online so far seems to back that up with no discernible difference noted - happy for someone to tell me I'm missing something though!
- Tough for me to comment on the noise cancellation as I haven't come from an earlier GT-R to offer a comparison, the MY17 is my first. I would say it's on par with my old C63 in terms of cabin noise which may not be Bentley quiet but a) I wouldn't want that anyway and b) i can hear enough of what's going on without it becoming tiresome.
Overall, it's mostly ear to ear grins, no gripes, but I've noticed the recent colder mornings on the way to work it's more clunky/noisy until it's warmed up. Doesn't bother me, just a nice reminder to let her warm up!
Also managed to find a good fuelling position without it cutting off every other second (nozzle in, out an inch, rotate left an inch! )
