Select 2014 Lexus Models to Feature Apple’s Siri Eyes-Free System


Lexus Siri Eyes-Free

Good news for iPhone owners, Lexus will be introducing the Siri Eyes-Free system to select 2014 models:

When drivers pair their personal iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 with a Lexus vehicle via Bluetooth, Siri performs an amazing range of tasks. Need to make a call on the highway? Ask Siri to connect you. Need to send a quick text message, IM, or email? Just dictate it to Siri. When replies come in, Siri reads them aloud over the audio system.

Bonus: the system provides turn-by-turn navigation using Apple Maps. When you request directions from Siri, a map pops up on your phone while Siri delivers directions over the audio system.

Included as a standard feature on the 2014 ES, GS, LS and RX, Siri Eyes-Free will be accessible using the steering wheel’s Off-Hook phone button.

    LEXUS!!! I know setting up for all Android devices is tricky, but please put in the effort! I love Google Now, and I want to access it with the touch of a button rather than having that button just sit there… mock at me…

    WHY wouldn’t this feature be available as standard on the All New IS? Mind boggling Lexus.

  • Crave

    Androids do all this already (S4 at least) without the carmaker having to put it in anything special

    Wait. What I meant is that I can utilize Google Now on an Android device through the feature mentioned in this article. Activating Google Now voice control is a bit tricky sometimes, especially when connected through Bluetooth.

  • Ayo DocMkize

    How would customers know whether to use Apple Maps or Lexus Navigation?
    Which would be easier/more convenient to use?

    Why is the message button on phone panel grey shaded and I cannot access it. I just leased a 2014 300H ES
