Wow, thank you very much! I will definitely try that, because the Speedo is out by a fair bit.
I'm used to it from our Subaru, which are know to be ~7km/h out. But it's definitely a bit more on the Leaf. And I think an analogue gauge is a bit more forgiving than a digital readout, because a needle's width up or down is a few km/h. But I prefer seeing it displayed digitally, so it'd be great if that adjustment works on our 2015 as well.

I've just got new tyres all around, so new wheels and tyres is off the menu for me for many years.
The conclusion from that thread is that the -2.5% / 0 / +2.5% calibration facility is disabled. That seems shocking to me, so I'd be happy to hear whether you find it makes any difference. Yours being an import means your result might be different from mine, but still of interest.
Also, why not a few more steps? I hear that modern computers are pretty good at doing multiplication on the fly...
2012 Leaf with new battery May 2019. ~98% solar powered.
hi Tom, I just tried it on my local leaf and also had a lot of trouble getting in but I eventually did. The original instructions were probably a little brief.
1st turn on the car ready to drive. then press MAP to go to the Sat Nav page, and press OK for the nagging authorisation menu to get there. Then turn off the audio (if it was ON).
Now the next part has to be done very quickly - MAP 3x Audio 2x MAP x1
all within 1-2 secs. ie as fast as you can... Then it works.
I found that if I didn't do it very quickly it did not work. DAC
Thanks dac1811, that worked to get into the Service Menu . I don't think I was fast enough before - every video I saw had them pressing the buttons much slower.
But in Navigating, I only have Sensor Information, nothing else. It just has a page of information but no option to change anything. That is through Google Translate though, so tomorrow I'll be getting the swap to english done. So maybe I'll have more options then. Or maybe the later Nissan Connect Headunits like mine have some functions removed.
But even apart from that, there are a lot if very interesting menus. You mentioned the nagging authorisation menu (I assume about using not using the Stanav etc while driving). There's an option 'Safe Driving Message' On/Off. Do you have that? Maybe that's an option to turn that annoying message off.
Who are you getting the SatNav conversion from? Can’t seem to find anyone who can do the 2016 30kWh jap to English conversion for the Head Unit.
Chris from Japan Imports did the Head Unit today (his worker). As I mentioned previously, he must've gotten confused with the earlier Carwings Headunits when he said they'd have Maps. Because the Nissan Connect one doesn't have Aus Maps. Radio works (sort of - not great at picking up stations so far). It has Radio options for different regions of NewZealand, so it definitely has English NZ Firmware.
Was quoted $600, but when I arrived it was '$600+GST'. And I realised after I had left, that a few trim clips were still in the footwell (picture below - I'll try to see where they go). He lent me a loaner Leaf for a few hours though, and he's a nice guy. So depending on what your skill level is, it doesn't look like the swap is hard. So diy is good option as well.
I bought a 2016 30kWh Nissan Leaf through a Melbourne importer for $30k. When I received the car was in very good condition with 12 bars but no Aussie maps but I failed to notice that LeafSpy had indicated that one of the cells (no. 23 out of about 98) had a low voltage (about 200mV low) and now quite regularly the car goes into "turtle" mode with limited power which prevents me from driving smoothly up hills or accelerating quickly. Disconnecting and reconnecting the 12 V battery resets the error message and returns power to normal but turtle mode usually returns by the next restart of the car. Nissan Australia's service centre are looking into solutions - initially they suggested that a new battery might be required but hopefully only the cell (or the battery controller) needs replacement. The web suggests that there was a batch of faulty batteries distributed worldwide from the USA in late 2015-early 2016 and I guess my car is one that got the bad battery cells. Has anyone else had a similar problem?
Bad luck! There was a guy in Canberra who had a Leaf which had a sudden range drop after driving on a full charge. He spent years complaining about it. Nissan didn't look after him at the time, then it got some media attention and after that nobody heard from him. Maybe he cut his losses or maybe they made him a deal. Is there a statutory warranty in Victoria? In NSW it's 3 months, 5000km. Maybe you can get the car returned if it proves to be a lemon?
