A client from Anchorage, Alaska, came in with a 2016 Toyota RAV4 for a remote starter system. This client decided on Compustar’s DroneMobile and a basic one-way remote with 1,000 feet of range for a backup. The DroneMobile is very popular in Anchorage and one of the top units we sell. It has unlimited range through an app on the driver’s smartphone, so it works well with clients who travel a lot, and especially with students going to college. (DroneMobile does require an annual service fee or a three-year plan.)
We started our install by checking every function of the vehicle, using our iPads to record everything. We then performed our install using Tesa tape and zip ties, and soldering each and every connection.
Once we complete the job, we have a different technician check out the vehicle. He goes over the same functions and checks the work performed. In this case, he checked the hood pin, brake shutdown, unlock, lock and remote start. After checking out the vehicle, we vacuumed the RAV4. Before we pulled it out of our service bay, we added a complimentary Perfectionist Auto Sound and Security water bottle and a VIP hanger.
We taught our client how to use the new remote start and answered any questions.
