Yes, I am planning on changing the pins

Make some sort of legend:
:: two thumbs up ::

As I understand the map, you cannot have different pins on the same layer but you can have multiple layers, each with their own pin. So you can achieve the effect you want with a little spreadsheet work.
Yes, So I'll have to make 4 Google Sheets.

The question is: Can i insert this Legend image on the map?

Yes ... but:

It requires a script that you host and run under node.js, or that Google hosts and runs for a fee.

See: https://developers.google.com/maps/docu ... lay-simple

Just to be clear regarding e.g 4 layers, we are talking about one Google Doc with 4 sheets (aka tabs)
A legend would be ideal but each layer has a name that can be descriptive.

The website is officially 3 months old and the Google Map has been viewed 256,000 times!!!

I guess swapping LEAF battery packs is really sought after?

There are 37 companies now.

I wish this aftermarket would help drive confidence with consumers to buy more of the cars new to keep the cycle going.

Interesting variation of a Ponzi scheme

The arithmetic does not pan out since close to 100% of LEAFs are eventual wannabe battery transplants but only ~ 1% of LEAFs get totaled each year. If the electronics can be solved then the LEAF world needs 3rd party packs.

Given what we're seeing with the latest packs, the 40kwh batteries would be fine for typical Leafs, and the 62kwh packs would give those who need it a 200+ mile range, with a bit of extra work. Leafs in Hot climates should of course be traded rather than upgraded.

As a firm advocate of 1.5 cars in my household, I would be really happy to know that my 24 kWh LEAF could be revitalized up to ~ 40 kWh pack for ~ $5,000 every 5 years or thereabouts.

Will it happen ? I'm deeply skeptical. Lucky for us, our 1/2 car is doing OK and our use case is so minor that I think we can pretty easily squeeze another 3 years (if not more) out of it. If I'm wrong and reasonable upgrades are available then I'll consider it; and if not, I'll look forward to the entry level Tesla.

IF ONLY Nissan would agree to sell 40 kWh packs to 3rd party installers for under $5,000. What a game changer that would be. I know --- dream on.

Fully agree, Nissan is missing the value of the zleaf having an aftermarket. It actually helps sales rather than belief that it cannibalize them.

This $5000 figure for 40kwh packs seems to be quoted to make it impossible. I think that wholesale would be slightly higher, and a dealer-installed 40kwh pack would likely run at least $10k, inclusive of labor. If you want a bargain, Sagebrush, then a lightly used pack from a wreck, installed by an independent shop, might run about $6000 to $7500. That would still be a bargain.

No ... it's the amount I think I would agree to pay. A higher amount would push me to car replacement. My wife and I chatted about it a little this morning. Despite her tendency to want to stay with what she knows, and our preference in general to re-use rather than add to the garbage heap, we both recognize that newer cars have warranty, improved safety, improved reliability, additional features and conveniences, and newer car improved performance. The newer car also does not carry the risk of the replacement pack having un-warrantied problems or a sunk cost if a repair pops up that is too expensive to pay.

Our hyper-consumer, throw-away society can be pretty miserable but it can be rational. LEAF battery replacement suffers from being a one-off, custom item. It tends to make it a poor value compared to selling the car and buying new. If inexpensive used LEAF battery packs are in over-supply then it may be reasonable to take on the costs of logistics and custom labor and the risks of an unsupported, un-warrantied service.
