AF­TER MAHIN­DRA, SKODA and other big play­ers, Nissan has gone dig­i­tal with its Nissan Con­nect ini­tia­tive. Com­bin­ing over 50 odd fea­tures, the app based ser­vice in­tends to con­nect the own­ers bet­ter with their cars.

Avail­able on iOS, An­droid and Win­dows Mo­bile de­vices, the Nissan Con­nect app con­nects to the car with the help of a fac­tory-fit­ted Telem­at­ics Con­trol Unit (TCU). The TCU will also be avail­able to retro­fit on ex­ist­ing cars in the near fu­ture, claims Nissan.

Hav­ing paired your phone with the TCU, the app al­lows the own­ers to geo fence, re­ceive over­speed­ing alerts, or set ‘cur­few alerts’ (no­tify if the car moves out of its spec­i­fied lo­ca­tion, be­fore the time limit). The own­ers can also book ser­vice ap­point­ments, lo­cate their car, man­age trip info and also re­ceive an eco score’ de­pend­ing on their driv­ing pat­tern.

The Nissan Con­nect plat­form has been in­dige­nously de­vel­oped at the Re­nault-Nissan Tech­nol­ogy and Busi­ness Cen­tre In­dia (RNTBCI) in Chen­nai and is avail­able for the en­tire Nissan line-up in the country. The ser­vice will be pro­vided free of cost for a pe­riod of three years.
