How to use Lexus Enform

September 20th, 2016 by

Lexus Enform is complimentary for the first year (and on some 2018 models, for the first 10 years) of ownership on every new Lexus leased or purchased from North Park Lexus at Dominion or any other Lexus dealership in the country.  The suite of connected services available through Lexus Enform elevates the Lexus experience and provides concierge-level convenience via technology that connects car and driver.  From emergency assistance to GPS-enabled vehicle locator to a live destination specialist, drivers can use Lexus Enform for just about any event that may exist while on the road today.  But, how do you really use Lexus Enform?   Let’s explore each service available with Lexus Enform and how you can take advantage of your Enform subscription.


More than just a button- SOS (Lexus Safety Connect)

You may have seen this button in your Lexus and wondered when would I use this?  Lexus Safety Connect is a valuable service that can send assistance directly to your vehicle’s GPS location whether you’re involved in an accident, your vehicle is stolen or the unexpected occurs (like running out of gas).  When the green light is on then you know you have an active Safety Connect subscription.  Simply press that SOS button and get connected to a live agent ready to help you.

Below are some instances when you would use Lexus Safety Connect:

Stolen Vehicle Location 

If your Lexus is stolen, you first need to file a police report.  Once that police report is filed, the Safety Connect Response Center can work directly with police to track and recover your stolen vehicle using the embedded cellular and GPS technology.

Emergency Assistance Button (SOS)

Whether it’s a health emergency, a traffic accident or some other urgent situation where help is required, a single press of the Emergency Assistance Button (SOS) can connect you to a 24-hour Safety Connect* response center agent. Using your vehicle’s GPS technology, the agent can send emergency services to your vehicle’s location while offering to stay on the line with you until help arrives.

Roadside Assistance

With embedded cellular and GPS technology, Lexus Roadside Assistance is even more convenient to use.  Whether your vehicle has run out of gas, has a flat tire, needs to be towed or requires a jump-start, assistance can be sent to your vehicle’s location-all at the press of the Emergency Assistance Button (SOS).

Automatic Collision

In the event that your vehicle’s airbags deploy or you’re involved in a severe rear-end collision, you’ll be automatically connected to a Lexus Safety Connect* response center agent. After attempting to speak to the occupants, the agent will notify local emergency services of the situation and direct them to your vehicle’s location.


Lexus Enform Service Connect

Take the guesswork out of vehicle maintenance with Enform Service Connect.  Once connected, Lexus drivers can receive updates on everything from fuel level to maintenance alerts and more via email or mobile app.

Vehicle Health Report

Your vehicle health report provides important information including fuel level, vehicle mileage, smart key battery status, engine oil quantity, recent changes to Lexus Personalized Settings*, and more. You can view the reports on your desktop, tablet, or phone by visiting or using the Lexus Drivers mobile app. For the ultimate in service convenience, you can choose to have a dealer automatically call you to help schedule a service or check the status of your vehicle.

Vehicle & Maintenance Alerts

The best care is preventive. Enform Service Connect* provides vehicle alerts to you and maintenance alerts to both you and your preferred Lexus dealer. Should you opt-in for this convenient service, Enform Service Connect allows your dealer to contact you when maintenance is required, helping to keep your vehicle running at its best.


Lexus Enform Remote

Also complimentary for the first year of ownership, Lexus Enform Remote mobile app lets Lexus Owners keep an eye on their vehicle from anywhere in the world.  Lexus drivers can use the Remote App to lock and unlock doors, turn on the engine and climate controls, find your vehicle in a crowded parking garage and monitor guest drivers.


Simply download the free Enform Remote app and with the touch of a button, you can remotely check the status of your vehicle’s doors, moonroof, trunk, fuel level, odometer reading and more.  You can also set up customizable alerts so you’re notified via text or email anytime your car is being driven while you’re out of town, for example.



Lexus Enform Destination Assist gives you 24-hour access to a live response center agent that can help you locate that new sushi restaurant or suggest nearby Points of Interest if driving in a new city.  Just use your voice command to connect to Destination Assist and let the live agent help you to find whatever you need while driving.  Below is the Lexus description of how Destination Assist goes to works for you.

Destination Assist

Destination Assist* gives you 24-hour access to a live response center agent to help you locate a specific business, address or point of interest. If you’re searching for a restaurant, the agent can help you narrow your choices by distance or type of cuisine, and remotely send the destination to your vehicle’s Navigation System.

 Lexus Enform App Suite
