Default [2011+] Remote start options

Just picked up my 12 QX yesterday with every package. I was shocked when I found out it didn't have remote start especially with the price and all the other technology. Does anyone know of a kit that works with the factory remote? I saw one on EBay but am leery.
Thanks

I went with the Viper Smart Start system (smart phone app based). Has its pluses an minuses vs a fob remote.

Was probably $600 installed, I'd have to check.

I can't imagine the stock fob giving any range. Feedback from those that have it?

Can you give some of the pluses and minuses of the Smart Start?

biggest minus- a fob is easier. just hit the button and go. I have an Autostart that has a tremendous range and it's a 2-way so I get a confirmation. With the viper, I have to dig the phone out of my pocket, fire up the app, and wait for it to initialize. It takes a few seconds. not as easy with kids. the wife does not like the extra steps.

biggest plus- range. as long as there is a signal on the vehicle, it will start.

Another minus- I accidently started the Q not remembering I drove the Lexus to work. The Q was in the garage at home. Kids and wife were home and didn't realize I started. Dangerous. There is no way to shut off remotely that I have found.

IT seems to not work 100% even when the signal shoudl be good. I get notified that the app did not start the car so at least I know it doesn't work.

Not cheap. monthly fee.

Overall, I'd probably do it again, it's just not a perfect system

yep range is super limited. just in the vicinity of the car. that's the major downside to using the oem factory setup. in the Consult, there is a provision in the settings to enable remote start. so its already built in some what, the dealer needs to program the system with the Consult.

Still, its an option.

Compustar is the way to go hands down for several reasons. It is infinitely expandable and uses a specific firmware to integrate into your cars databus system. This eliminates the spaghetti wiring mess that you sometimes see with other remote starters. Compustar partnered with ADS to provide a finished product that is reliable, discreet and has up to a mile of range. Check out their website and if you have any questions, our information can be found on facebook: facebook.com/westendaudioandupholstery
