I'm doing with a compustar alarm/remote start system with the drone module. $700 + tax installed on a Manual transmission. 2 weeks !! can't wait
Check out the dronemobile system .... The features make the viper smartstart look like a toy. Remote kill, gps tracking, geofencing, curfew, maintenance reminders, also does your vehicle’s battery voltage, temperature, alarm status, speed and more.This wkend Ill be getting my "Viper startsmart" remote start. It works through your cell phone (Andriod/or Iphone) unlocks,locks,trunk release, panic and informs you where your car is....all text messaged to your cell phone. Its $500 bucks...but with everything on my car...U gotta spend alot on a security system...
Quite expensive if you want to get all the features. I picked up Smart Start a month ago and it's really nice. If you want just the "basic" features, then they are relatively the same.
Yes for all the "extras" it's $100 more per year. But it's nice that the option is there. I'm going to get it the first year and see how much I use it etc. And again in the grand scheme of things... It's a $100 over a year. Like $8 a month.Quite expensive if you want to get all the features. I picked up Smart Start a month ago and it's really nice.

I would start calling shops in your area and ask them. I had 2 local shops tell me they won't install on MTs due to insurance and liability. But i found one who does and they are a compustar "pro" shop.I'm looking at the viper smart start system to maybe be installed in the next month or two before the cold winter here in NY but need verification becuz they wont email me back and it's not on their website. Can the viper smart start system (500$ one) be used on manual transmission? I rly want this one but obv need it to work for manual?!
Yes ... Smart start is a module only so it probably won't say. You are actually buying a remote start and a module (smartstart).Thanks beast but is the smart start system even ABLE to be installed on a stick shift becuz whenever I look for remote starters, they are always specified as "for manual transmission"
A number of starter manufacturers now are implementing a 'reservation mode' where certain steps are needed in order for the starter's brain to give the go ahead to start the car. I talked to Compustar through a few emails and part of what they said was that 'all their starters are manual trans compatible, which take care of the legality and liability for manual transmission vehicles since they can't be physically started in gear. More companies are switching to this since they have been taking large amounts of heat from insurance companies and problems with who can actually be held responsible' hence for the laws you mentioned.It is illegal in a lot of states to install remote starters on manual transmission vehicles. Anyone thinking about this should check their local laws first.
