Hey Qashqai owners, Nissan should provide an update to the headunit bringing wireless android auto support. We have WiFi in the J11 car headunit. How can we contact Nissan for this?

That's no update.
The only way to get it is to order the android wireless module by buying a perk at indiegogo for around 60 pound.
That or buying one of the few cars supporting this in Europe.

Welcome to this forum.

Contact Nissan via their websites and customer services. Good luck at even getting a reply!

Even the latest Niddan models did not get Wireless Android support.
Nor the Nissan Rogue / Sport (US), nor the Nissan Qasqai J12 (UK) so ... I would not hold my breath !
The only way is to order an "android wireless module" from Indiegogo and hope it to work with the Bosh headunit (there were issue for supporting the Nissan/Bosh headunits, but they are probably solved by now ?).
Android (and -support) is a mess compared to Apple Carplay.
Don't think Nissan is to blame here ... if Wireless Android would be "easy" (like it seems with Wireless Carplay support in the QQ J12) they would have done it I guess !?
Good Luck.

I just got my AAWireless unit from that indiegogo campaign. After pairing my phone with it, android auto opened just fine and I briefly tested listening music through plexamp. It worked just fine with my J12.

Thank you for the information ilkka !
I funded AAWireless on june 11 so that means I'll have to be ... patient.
Good to know the Oneplus smartphones work just fine with it.
