What is NissanConnect and Why Do Driver’s Need It?

In a busy society that is always needing to stay connected, even while driving, it can make navigating the road dangerous. Distracted drivers who are trying to make phone calls, find maps or find that perfect song while driving is a hazard. Nissan has made strides to take those dangers away, or at least to decrease them. When NissanConnect is used properly, drivers can be fully focused on the road while still staying connected to what is important or necessary. 

What is NissanConnect?

NissanConnect is a technology suite with a long history in the Nissan family of cars. This technology has a long history within Nissan and was actually known by a different name until 2015 when Carwings was renamed as NissanConnect. This technology suite has changed and evolved with the times and now enables the driver to control their phones, entertainment, navigation, and security features without ever taking their hands off of the wheel. 

Nissan prides themselves on how user-friendly and intuitive NissanConnect is. They designed it so drivers won’t need a user manual to be able to figure out the system. There are subscription fees involved if you decide to upgrade your NissanConnect so make sure you ask your local Nissan dealership about that.
