Default Nissan to launch connected car technology in Indian portfolio

Nissan is bringing connected car technology to its cars in India. Media reports suggest that the Micra, Sunny and Terrano will receive new features in the connected car domain, with the official launch expected in July, 2017.

Detailed information regarding the said update isn't available yet. However, Nissan is expected to introduce a smartphone app, which will offer connectivity solutions with the company's cars. Through this app, owners are likely to be able to communicate with the car. The app is also expected to come with vehicle diagnostic features and will even offer service reminders and GPS tracking to the owners.

Additionally, through the upcoming technology, Nissan will be able to keep track of its cars on the road. This will allow the automaker to access data regarding the car's running and condition. It will thus enable the automaker to establish more concrete connection with its already sold cars and is expected to enhance the company's ability to diagnose and rectify any issues in advance.

If any one keep track of the cars on the road without the permission of owner, I feel its violation of one's privacy.
If the data gets leaked or hacked, some other unwanted person will be knowing the exact position of the car on road.

I guess when you buy the car or download the app, Nissan will make you to agree to " terms and conditions" wherein you share data.

Maybe Nissan should focus on getting more of its cars on the road in India rather than tracking them!

Not sure what good is the objective of this. This might be a small value addition for a fleet buyer, but I don't see this making a difference to the average car buyer.
Instead of these gimmicks, Nissan should look at bringing in the next generation Micra, Kicks, etc.

I think we are a little confused here. It says the below-

"The connected cars will not only benefit owners but the manufacturer too. Currently, most cars are serviced by third-party and local garages after the warranty expires, as owners look for more affordable options. Now with connected cars, vehicle manufacturers will have access to data like the vehicle's running and condition, with which it will be able to provide a proactive and timely reach out using service reminders and offers".

Don't think they want to keep a track of all their cars on the road.
