The farthest I was able to remote start the car in a parking garage was 100'.

I still like the App better for starting up the car from my office, but at least we have other options.

100' won't do it, shame. I was hoping to save the cost of the enform app. However, i really do like the fact that it will notify you if you leave the doors unlocked so I will probably keep it. I'm kinda shocked at how often i do it.

(and it is pretty cool when people when people go what's that? um, I'm locking my car doors because it sent me a notification that they were unlocked heh heh )

Remember that 100' was in a parking garage and you distance can vary.

I love it when I remote start my car, and people are like WTF. It's even more fun when Security comes up and lets me know that my car started by itself.

Lol

I've seen those reactions from quite a lot of people, mainly being those not into cars and not up to date on how technology has progressed and how it continues to progress.

Make sure you have the Lexus Enform Remote setup and working first. We found that w/o it the Key Fob won't remote start the car. Hope that helps/

Awesome, starting with key FOB works for me now too, since setting up the Enform app.

What is everyones success ratio with starting the engine using the Enform app? For me it's about 50/50....

It is about time that Lexus Canada smarten up and get the Enform App that you Americans have been enjoying for sometime now. I would love to have all these features.
When? I have heard never so far!

It might have to do with regulations about remote starting a car and leaving it unattended, wasting gas, or creating pollution. Does Canada have anything like that?

It's more, like 70/30, but then it also has to do with cell service and being able to connect.
