Nissan is looking into a blogger's claims that the navigation systems in its Leaf vehicles send drivers' location data to third parties, The Wall Street Journal reports. A SeattleWireless.net blog post claims that the information is transmitted via Nissan's subscription-based Carwings system when a driver updates his RSS feeds. "There is no way to prevent this data from being sent, nor does Nissan or Carwings warn you that your location data can be flung off to random third parties," the blog states.
