What is Nissan Connect and Nissan Connect Services?

Download Nissan Connect for Android and iPhone. Nissan Connect Services is basically OnStar for Nissan. If you get into an accident the vehicle will dispatch emergency vehicles to your location, you can get roadside assistance, and Nissan even offers special concierge service where you can speak to a live operator to get directions to your destination.


But the best part of Nissan Connect Services is the remote function features from your smartphone or smart device like Google Home or Amazon Alexa.

“Hey Google, start my Altima with Nissan Connect Services!”

Need to find your vehicle in a crowded parking lot or God forbid the Long Term Parking at the Airport? No problem. Either open the Nissan Connect Services App on your device and tap on the Vehicle Locator option, or even better, press the Honk horn button. Just follow the sounds of that beautiful horn honking in the distance.

Of course, you could just use your key fob, But what if you didn’t realize that your spouse had it after you already walked out of the arena to get the sweater you told them to get, before you left the vehicle. Use the app to unlock the car doors. Pretty neat.
