Default Lexus Enform Remote--for 2015 3IS only?

A day or so ago, Autoblog did an article on the changes planned for the '15 3IS cars, among them Lexus Enform Remote, which will enable remote start from cell phones (among other things).

Any word as to whether or not this will work on the '14 cars?



*edit* I hadn't looked at the thread on the 2015 cars before I posted this. Sorry if there's any overlap.

Default Curious

I'm curious about this also..... I've tried to do some research on the topic and here's what I've come up with:

** The IS doesn't have an option for RES+ which leads me to believe that Lexus has other plans for the 2014 IS's.
** The 2014 IS already has Safety Connect. With Navigation etc. it should be very easy for Lexus to simply update our systems remotely and make this option available.
** When you click on the "availability" on the Enform webpage, the 2015 RX, IS CT, CT, GX & LX are excluded. I'm guessing those vehicles will still continue to use RES+. There's no mention of previous model years with Enform.

-- Can anyone else shed some light on this topic? Or has it been bumped.

I think the 14 owners are screwed and the 15 owners get all the goodies but maybe Lexus will prove me wrong. I hope

It has been stated in another thread that '14 IS with Nav will not even get RES let alone RES+. I really wanted RES+ and Lexus misled me on being able to get this on my IS.

RES- Remote Engine Start, which allows you to start the vehicle with a car starter

RES+ - Allows you to turn on your vehicle using your cellphone, similar to the Viper car starters (if I am not mistaken, not 100% sure though)

Recurring revenue doesn't suck, for Lexus. It's already a winning formula for the dealers.

Default Remote

I'm hoping that the '14 IS's with Nav will have access to the Enform remote as soon as the app and software is completed and/or released. It doesn't make sense as to why Lexus wouldn't atleast make RES an option unless they had other plans. Maybe I'm wrong but I hope I'm not!!

There is some kind of limiting factor on 14 IS w/ Nav that prevents us from getting the RES & RES+. I believe I saw another person post that it may be related to SOS button feature on 14 won't work if you install RES or RES+ but I'm not totally sure.

Click the image to open in full size.

according to lexus.com/mobilelink the 2014 IS models are compatible with RES+
Has anyone actually tried to download the app and register online to set it up?

Huh, that seems odd. We just had training on all the differences and it was noted that the 14s would not be upgradable to use the Enform remote.

I'm wondering if the Enform Remote app will work in Canada. Anyone knows?

Default Enform

I sent Lexus an e-mail asking if the Enform remote will be available on the 14 IS. Unfortunately, they said it will not. I don't understand why either. I guess you can always get the RES+ installed, but I was told that the RES+ couldn't be installed on the new IS. However, I went online to the RES site and it says its compatible...

Weird fact, when you go to sign up for RES+ they request that you input your vehicle model. The IS doesn't come up in the drop down box. Only the CT, ES, GX & RX do...
