    You need an RES+ ECU upgrade if your remote start stopped working! Took almost three months to come in, part was backordered. Just got mine working again, finally!!

    I agree with the comment below. I bought lexus rs+ in 2014 for my 2010 rx350 and it just stop working and lexus now tells me that they longer support it even thought I paid close 1,000 to have it installed. Great when it worked but sucked. I give it a 1 because lexus did not provide good service for this product. Very lousy job

    The app usually works fine, it's the service that constantly goes down.

    I paid $700 to have this feature in my '14 RX and it just stopped working. I pay $55/year for the service. I have been to 2 dealers and nobody knows how to fix it. I have spent countless hours on the phone with Lexus and...nothing. I will never buy another one!!!
