Factory remote starters are usually bottom end crap and so are other aftermarket ones.With the factory one there is no lights on at night using the key fob(not UVO) to indicate your car has started and it only gives you a 10 min.run time and the fob does not indicate if your car is running or not..They also have very poor range.I have used Idatalink(made in Germany) remotes in other cars I have owned and living in eastern Canada,we certainly need them,and they work flawlessly.Park lights and turn signal lights flash at 3 sec. intervals at night, 3000 ft. range plus a two way communicator meaning the fob light flashes with the lights on the car to tell you it is running.They also control the heated seats and the rear window defogger.You can also get up to a 30 min. runtime if needed. I was thinking of replacing the factory crap with one of these for next winter.They are approx. 500.00 CDN. installed with the factory one removed.A price and product you just can beat.
