Good point - but as I have often bought from Sewell let me say that there website is not always accurate.
Like the BBK for the 2014 IS350 - it says the rear BBK will fit and "were tested to fit" - wrong!. Ask me how I know?
This is obviously an error, as others who want the remote start kit would be all over this forum site citing a successful install.
Like the saying goes - "believe 50% what you read, 50% what you hear, and 100% what you see."
I don't intend to buy this since I'm waiting for something I can use through my phone.
But if this is a mistake it seems strange that they would indicate it's for navigation only, unless they are purposely trying to mislead.

i couldn't agree more! i just bought a brand new GMC sierra 1500 and it already had remote start on the fob, and through my on-star application on the iPhone.
I've used it several times and it works great! the best part is the engine stays running when i get in the truck, put the key in and turn it to run, and drive off..
i don't have to restart it!
whats more, i got the navigation system. I've driven it more miles than my lexus and the navigation, weather and traffic all work perfect, my pandora connects without problems and the system never rebooted 1 time on me!
also my heated seats are toasty warm!
LOL Yeah Chevy has some serious seat heaters. To the point where they burn your but
unfortunately that is FALSE information....still NOT available, and from my source from Lexus Corporate it will NOT be available at all for NAV equipped 2014 models...
Seriously does Lexus feel any bit guilty and responsible towards their customers when they say things like this. All the information prior to purchase gave the impression that this was available or coming! What is the reason that 2014 IS with Nav can't have RES or RES+?
For sure, glad I could help. They got it done fairly quick as well. Press lock button three times, on the third time hold down until lights start flashing then let go. Lights flash about 10 times then vehicle will start. Press unlock and that will turn vehicle off. They just fixed the issue with remote start within the last few days. They also told me there is no plan for RES+ on the IS model. Yes it does shut off when you open the door. At least you will have a warm or cool car by the time you get in.
I think its dumb that the vehicle shuts off if you remote start it and unlock the car.
Aftermarket solutions and other factory ones do not work in this same fashion.
Wonder why they made it where the vehicle turns off.
Seems like an afterthought addon if there is a conflict of the vehicle CAN signal not staying running when unlocking.
