Twitter, TripAdvisor and iOS Pandora Apps for NissanConnect

NissanConnectNissan announced new 2015 NissanConnect Mobile Apps: Twitter and TripAdvisor along with the launch of iOS support for Pandora.

NissanConnect Mobile Apps is an infotainment platform that uses drivers’ smartphones to help drivers connect to music, places and people. NissanConnect Mobile Apps is available in many Nissan models including the Altima, Rogue, Sentra, Frontier, JUKE, Versa Note and Versa Sedan.

These latest additions to NissanConnect Mobile Apps join previously launched apps Facebook, Google and iHeartRadio.

NissanConnect lets user perform a Google search to find a destination, even when you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for. Just speak or type in a keyword, like “Pizza”, to see a full list of nearby results. Voice integration is also available for launching most apps. We first saw Nissan Connected demoed at the LA Auto Show in 2013.

Using Nissan’s voice recognition, Bluetooth allows the driver to access smartphone contacts, make/answer calls and send pre-loaded text messages—hands-free—through the audio system. Drivers can also tell the system to play Pandora music, the driver or passenger likes.

We don’t know if these systems has had problems with iOS 8-8.1.2. and Bluetooth, please let us know in the comments below the model of Nissan and year if you are having Bluetooth Blues.  NissanConnect was nominated for the Tech CARS Awards, however Ford SYNC AppLink won in the best smartphone integration category.
