Those both sound like excellent features to have. Having knowledge of the gas prices around you is a great way to make the industry more competitive. Wonder why its not coming to NA yet?
You can even cross reference that information with google traffic reports which at times are reliable, even with the radio too as you have all those channels for picking up on what's going on. On the radio you might hear of something the instant it happens while the Lexus system takes a bit longer to process that issue.The more useful INRIX services that Lexus has are the real-time to traffic congestion and road incidents alerts and the off-street parking locator.
I usually have to listen to the radio for real time traffic reports but if they can warn me about it then all the better and finding parking spaces downtown is a pain in the butt so the parking locator will lower my stress level tremendously.
Those two options are supposed to come standard.Am I missing something? My NX has weather and gas prices already (from the Lexus Apps icon on the main menu).
