Nikon can get in trouble for D500 Wi-Fi false advertising in Germany

Nikon-SnapBridge-app Nikon-SnapBridge-app-3
The German website heise.de reports that Nikon has received a “cease and desist order” (?) from a German D500 camera owner for falsely advertising the camera as Wi-Fi enabled. The WLAN only works with Bluetooth but not as a standalone Wi-Fi device as the advertisements suggest (Bluetooth connection to SnapBridge needed). Here is the translation:
