It's part of the car with the remote, but if you want to do it with the app from your cell phone it's only a trial version. You have to pay a yearly fee for many of the services. I think it's 89.99 to be able to start and lock and unlock the car with the app. I'm not impressed at all by this either since I think something like locking your car and remote starting should be included. Especially if you get the top trim. I recently leased a Ford fusion energi and it's app has all that for free. I'm unimpressed by this cheapness on Honda's part.
