As we further integrate smart technology into every aspect of our daily lives, it gets even more difficult to catch up with how to use the latest innovations and features. Some convenience technologies in cars aren’t very user-friendly, but luckily, NissanConnect blends everything you need together in one system to make your life easier. We at West End Nissan even made a step-by-step guide so you can start using it right out of the gate and take full advantage of your NissanConnect system.
Before Getting Started
- Create an Account: On the Nissan Website, you’ll need to create a NissanConnect account to sync your data between your smartphone and your vehicle. You can click here to create yours!
- Download the App: Speaking of your smartphone, you’ll also need to download the NissanConnect app on either the Apple App Store, or the Google Play store, depending on the phone or operating system you have.
- Make sure your vehicle is stationary: For safety purposes, the pairing process for your Nissan vehicle will stay deactivated when your vehicle is in motion to avoid any possibility of distracted driving.
Connecting via Bluetooth
**Note: The display menu and menu options may vary with every model.
- Make sure the Bluetooth setting is turned on, according to your individual phone’s settings.

A Few Extra Tips
