A client came in with their 2019 Volkswagen Atlas looking for a new remote start. Here at Perfectionist Auto Sound, our techs are extremely experienced with European vehicles, so we walked through many options with our client while guaranteeing a clean and reliable install. We decided on the RFX-2WG15-FM, a two-way remote with a half-mile range. Two-way means that the remote will notify you once the car starts, through blinking LED lights, an audible tone and even your phone if you use the Compustar Drone car-starting app.
A customer came in looking for an autostart for their 2018 Honda HRV. They had never had an autostart before, so we walked them through the differences between one- and two-way remotes. “Two-way” means they will be notified when the vehicle is started, locked or unlocked through an LED light, audible tone or LCD screen — even through a push notification if using the Compustar Drone. “One-way” means that the remote will still start the car, but it will not give you any notifications, so you would have to see the car to know that it started. We also talked to the customer about what kind of range they needed and if they would be using Drone, the app for your smartphone that allows you to start and stop your vehicle from your phone.
After talking with our customer, we decided to go with the RFX-P2WG15-SS, a two-way remote start that has a two-mile range. We installed the system using our standard procedure of checking all of the vehicle’s functions on an iPad, plugging it into a battery charger after doing a battery test, and soldering and taping all of the wire connections. After we completed the install, we double-checked all of the vehicle’s functions and vacuumed the interior as a final step.
The customer was so happy on picking up their vehicle, knowing that they would be warm every morning and not have to go out into the cold to start the vehicle! If you are looking for an autostart for your vehicle, feel free to give us a call or to contact us here.
A repeat client from Anchorage, Alaska, brought his 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van to our shop, looking for a new remote start. He had previously brought multiple vans to us for remote start installations, so he knew that he could trust us to provide a clean, efficient and reliable install.
As always, we started this install with a check-in using an iPad, which includes taking photos of the exterior, checking the functions of the vehicle and performing a battery test. We then put a battery charger on the vehicle with a fender cover to protect the vehicle’s paint from any scratches. Our techs prepped the install by soldering every connection, electrical-taping each connection and using JK Tapes — a cloth tape similar to the tape used in factory installations — to clean up the install.
We installed the Compustar T12 remote on this customer’s van, along with the Compustar drone. The T12 is Compustar’s newest and best two-way remote, with a maximum range of 3 miles. “Two-way” means he will be notified when the vehicle is started, locked or unlocked through the LCD screen — and even through a push notification when using the Compustar DroneMobile app.
When he came to pickup the vehicle, our client was smiling and so excited to be able to continue to stay warm in his vans, and stay cool in our hot summers.

A local client from Anchorage, Alaska, recently came to us looking for a remote start for her 2019 Audi Allroad. After talking with her about what kind of range and features she was looking for, we decided to install the Compustar Prime 901, a two-way remote with an LCD screen, and the DroneMobile app. “Two-way” means she will be notified when the vehicle is started, locked or unlocked through an audible tone and an LCD screen – even through a push notification when using the Compustar Drone app. “LCD screen” means that the remote comes with a digital screen that provides feedback, showing icons for lock and unlock, the time, the internal temperature of the vehicle, and whether the vehicle is started or stopped, as opposed to just buttons on an LED remote.
Since this 2019 Audi is a push-to-start, it goes to show how experienced our technicians are at installing auto starts, especially for European vehicles. Our customer was over the moon when she came to pick up her vehicle, knowing that she had a reliable remote start that guarantees she stays warm all winter long and can cool down her vehicle on hot summer days.

During the winter months at Perfectionist Auto Sound and Security, we do around 12 autostarts a day — sometimes even more — so when a customer came in with a 2017 Nissan Rogue, we were easily able to help him decide on a remote and guarantee a clean, reliable and professional install. After all, we service Nissans almost every single day.
This customer decided to go with the Prime G15, a remote with a range of half a mile, and the Compustar DroneMobile, the app for your smartphone that is able to start, stop, lock and unlock your vehicle with virtually unlimited range. The Prime G15 is a two-way remote, “two-way” meaning that he will be notified when the vehicle is started, locked or unlocked through an LED light, audible tone or LCD screen — and even through a push notification when he’s using the Compustar drone app.
The customer was smiling and happy when he picked up his Nissan Rogue, knowing that he could now enjoy a warm and cozy vehicle for the long winter months or enjoy a cool vehicle during our sweltering summers.
