According to Nissan CarWings, a vehicle telematics service, I have driven 165 miles so far in December 2013. I know I have covered 700 miles during the same time period. CarWings shows no data whatsoever for my vehicle for the first two days of December, and the ‘regional ranking’ has been the same for the last 5 days.
Something isn’t right I thought. Wondering if this is limited to my vehicle I looked deeper into the regional and worldwide CarWings data. I found that only 2 US drivers are in the top 100 worldwide for the number of miles driven so far in December 2013. Normally the US makes up about 50% of the top 100 high mileage drivers. Of further interest, included in the top 25 worldwide drivers, are all from Japan. So maybe the data loss extends beyond the US to all world regions except Japan? The Top worldwide mileage of 1,200 miles is about what one would expect at this time from the higher mileage LEAF drivers. Steve Marsh who is approaching 100,000 miles in his LEAF isn’t in the top 100. (Although this could partly be explained by the fact Nissan have lent Mr Marsh a car to be sure the car reaches 100,000 miles on December 16th when they will publicly recognize the achievement).
We’ve seen occasional data delays in CarWings in the past, but this would seem to be first time evidence of widespread data loss. December data was delayed by over a week, such delays are not out of the ordinary for CarWings, but I’ve not noticed so much data go missing in action before.
Anybody else have problems with their CarWings data?
