OK you may not get real time charge location availability unless you find a wifi hot spot, big whoop.
Otherwise the actual charge locations could be updated every night.
I could see granting permission for Nissan to get the info they need as wifi comes available.

Hopefully in three years there will be an app to allow wifi.

And the std wifi works everywhere in the city, while on the move ?

You are comparing apples & oranges here. I like them both ...
Once I load the updated nav data (and my music), why do I need wifi on the move? To set the AC? Well if it's on the move, I'd better be in the damn car! :lol:

I voiced the same opinion there. And I will tell Nissan the same.

I want real time Charging station Status updates. I don't want last nights news only to find out that the charging station broke that morning.

What would be even better Is an estimate of the queue Or how many people are waiting to use the charger

I don't think we'll be getting factual real time data on charging station status. Perhaps one day, when the charger reports it's own status to carwings. But not for awhile.

A paid subscription That does not provide real time data?? Am i missing something here? I can get a paid subscription for traffic reports, so why can't i get status on charging stations?

The very least i would expect is weather or not its being used or not
