Through the MyLincoln Mobile app, drivers can connect through an embedded modem found within the 2015 Lincoln MKC and MKZ and the upcoming 2016 MKX, and use Now to remotely start, lock, or unlock their vehicles. Now also enables scheduling remote starts so that your cabin is warm and toasty when you need it to be.
