Siri Eyes-Free Compatibility

SEFM

Recently, we’ve received numerous inquiries from our customers regarding Siri Eyes-Free compatibility for many popular Lexus models.  For those who are not familiar, Siri is voice-activated search/executable command software available for Apple iPhone users.  Beginning in 2014, many automobile manufacturers, including Lexus, have partnered with Apple so that Siri can be integrated wirelessly to the car’s infotainment system via Bluetooth, allowing users communicate with Siri without having to touch their iPhone once the device is paired.  Lexus has branded their integration technology as “Siri Eyes-Free Mode”.

The following Lexus models are Siri Eyes-Free compatible:

  • 2014 Lexus ES 350/300h
  • 2014 Lexus GS 350/450h
  • 2014 Lexus LX 460/460L/600Lh
  • 2014 Lexus RX 350/450h

Please note that the Siri Eyes Free Mode feature cannot be retrofitted into any 2013 or older Lexus vehicles.
