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.
