Remote start via app?

Will the NX get an app similar to Hyundai's Blue Link to control the car via smartphone?

i sure hope it does, the fact that a brand like hyundai has it is even more of a reason for lexus to do it

I haven't heard anything about such a feature for the NX. Seems like its a bit redundant if you have the start button on your key fob as well. Is this something that most companies are offering? It seems to me that it isn't like this is becoming an industry standard or anything.

it's something they are slowly adapting to i think GM has it widespread.
eventually it will become an industry standard, it sort of it already just dependent on infotainment systems

I just read this from the Autoblog review: "There are some new technology bits worth briefly touching on that come as part of the Lexus Enform system in the NX. For 2015, Lexus is launching a smartphone app that is capable of starting the engine, locking or unlocking the doors, lowering the windows, checking fuel level or helping to locate a parked car. To get it, you'll have to check the box for factory navigation; the first year is free, after that, it's going to cost you $80 (that's just for the remote – other add-ons like Safety Connect at $140 per year after the first and Destinations at $125 further drain the bank account)."

Here's some updated info on Lexus Enform

In the NX brochure it says for vehicles equipped with Navigation the Enform Remote service is complimentary for the first year of ownership. On the Lexus web site it says the Enform Remote app is free and the sevice is $219 a year which includes Enform Safety Connect.

At $219, that's not too bad for the service. How many of you would have wanted to see it for free or for a much lower price?

Free is better. I would get the $80 Remote service if Lexus has it separately which is in the article posted by JoeLasVegas. It would be worth it to me to have it for the Winter months here in the Northeast just to Remotely start the NX.

Enform Remote App

The remote app is, indeed available and it works great. One feature is the ability to set it when you turn your NX over to a valet to park. The app reports on engine start, MPH, distance driven. No Ferris Bueller's Day Off here. The app also shows whether the doors are locked and a GPS map showing vehicle location.

I don't think it works great I own a Lexus NX turbo and it doesn't not connect always.
Furthermore it takes approximately 30-40 seconds to first lock the doors and put in the
security code twice then another 30-40 seconds to start engine. My previous 2 cars were
able to be started with just a push of a button on the key fab. This system on lexus needs to be improved.
