This product is firmware that can be sent over the internet, it requires no shipping. It is compatible with the 2016/17 Nissan Leaf. No need to take apart the dash, just insert the card! It adds a wide range of functionality to your device, including:
- Updating the head unit, map version and enabling navigation even if the original SD card is missing.
- Enabling Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for a seamless smartphone integration.
