Combine this app with the LEGO DC Super Heroes App-Controlled Batmobile (76112), the LEGO City Cargo Train (60198), or the LEGO City Passenger Train (60197) (each sold separately) to operate the motorized engines via Bluetooth controls, or use your imagination and build entirely new creations using LEGO Powered Up components and bring them to life by coding them. Make your models move and respond to real-world events.
The LEGO Powered Up app puts you in the driver’s seat of the awesome 4-wheel-drive Batmobile to speed through the streets of GOTHAM CITY™. Drive forwards, backwards, left and right… or pull 360-degree turns! You can even activate cool tricks and stunts as you become the Dark Knight and fight crime. You can customize and code your Batmobile tricks and choose your sounds and movements – pretty awesome!
The LEGO Powered Up app also controls LEGO trains to haul goods or pick up passengers around LEGO City. You can control the speed, change directions, and bring even more life to your play with various sounds such as a whistle, passenger announcement, railroad crossing bell, and more! The Bluetooth remote control app and the remote control handset included in the LEGO City train sets aren’t compatible with older infrared remote-controlled LEGO train sets.
Thanks to Powered Up components like hubs, motors, sensors, and lights you will be able to bring your customized creations to life. You can also bring your existing LEGO models to life.

Ratings and Reviews
This app looks promising but has no instructions or troubleshooting. The intro video did NOT play on my phone or my wife’s iPhone. The app appears to connect to my son’s train via Bluetooth because I can see battery life and the device name. However the train doesn’t move and the controls don’t work... when I press a button nothing happens. I can’t find any help or instructions anywhere. Legos are typically a premium product but the experience with this app is disappointing. I have tried the LEGO website and instructions there are not clear either.
Works Great 👍
Connected to my Batmobile almost immediately within one minute. Great simple instructions didn’t even need to watch video. Great STEM activity for kids and adults of all ages. Even though the car itself is very pricey, would recommend for everyone. App was just amazing too! Keep up the good work LEGO looking forward to seeing what other STEM products you come out with!!
No way to exit the app
So I downloaded this app onto my iPhone X. Connected via Bluetooth to the new LEGO Batmobile and everything works fine. EXCEPT when I’m done with the app and want to exit the app, I can’t! Swiping up on my phone to go back to home screen or to show all open apps doesn’t work. The app simply does not allow you to. Only way to close the app is to power off the iPhone via the volume down button and the main button on the opposite side and then swiping the phone off. EXTREMELY ANNOYING. Going to return the batmobile if there is no immediate fix. What a horrible experience after spending well over two hours to put something together that totally locks up your phone.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
