Toyota announces Lexus Enform with Safety Connect

Already announced to launch on the HS 250h, Lexus Enform with Safety Connect will become available on additional 2010 model year Lexus vehicles manufactured after the official "go live" date of August 1st.

The IS sedans – including the all-new IS C and the IS F, the LX 570 as well as the RX 350 and RX 450h SUVs – will also offer the subscription service.

Safety Connect is available on both non-navigation and navigation-equipped vehicles and offers four safety and security features: automatic collision notification and stolen vehicle location, emergency assistance button (SOS) and enhanced roadside assistance, which adds GPS data to the already included warranty-based Lexus roadside service.

All calls are routed to a Safety Connect response centre that operates 24/7.

Available only on navigation-equipped vehicles, Lexus Enform includes all of the Safety Connect features and builds on them with the premium services of Destination Assist and eDestination.

Destination Assist agents are available via the on-board cellular equipment and can help drivers find a specific address, a business by name, or a type of business (e.g., gas station, movie theatre, etc.), and even Zagat®-rated restaurants, and then send the co-ordinates to the navigation system for routing.

EDestination enables drivers can go online via to save and sort destinations in up to twenty folders, each holding as many as ten destinations. These locations – up to 200 at a time – can be sent to the vehicle for downloading into the navigation system.

Lexus InsiderTM, a complimentary opt-in service, is also available on all Lexus Enform-equipped vehicles. This feature offers in-vehicle audio casts that provide owners access with useful vehicle tips and event information, and insights into exclusive owners' benefits.

Additionally, XM NavTraffic® and XM NavWeatherTM and the all-new XM® Sports & Stocks are available on Lexus Enform-equipped 2010 model year Lexus vehicles.
