The owner said the reason it isn't offers is bc on all other vehicles with Autostart an additional fob is placed under the hood and the fobs communicate to each other and that is how they start. He said that setup would compromise the security system on the qx and that without the fob it wouldn't start.
Wish I was smart enough to know the truth here. I wouldn't mind the add on remote system and I would go with a compustar. Living in Michigan it's essential to have one bc of the cold, ice and snow. I've had trouble a few times with doors being frozen shut that would render the current setup on the qx useless.
Just a bit disillusioned with the onslaught of things they thought of but couldn't figure out the Autostart?
I would welcome any and all responses. As a matter of fact I would appreciate a phone call from someone who wouldn't mind answering a few questions.

Thanks,

Chris

I started this post and have not installed the remote start. I had 2 Denali's (08-10) before this Q and I can tell you that the Q is so much better than those GM SUV's that you wont care about paying extra for a remote start. It's a phenomenal vehicle.

I live in MN and need the remote start (except for this past winter). I installed a Viper deal that starts with an iphone app. no fob needed. It was about $600 plus annual service. only used in 5-6 times and seem to work as intended.

Thanks for the info goblue. If no fob is needed then how do you start the vehicle? I was under the impression the fob had to be inside the vehicle for it to unlock and start. Help me understand this. I'm still interested in this solution for the iPhone capability. Thanks!

They install some electronic override module in the vehicle, which is part of the alarm system. the ignition is killed when the door is opened.

The setup was about $600 and I think it's another $100/yr in service fees for the cellular connection. I came off a fob based system in my yukon and have mixed feelings. I like the range of the phone system, but miss the ability to hit a fob. I really wanted to avoid an extra fob on the key ring.

i probably will use the remote start less as it takes a few seconds to fire up the phone, but it is there when I need it. Also with the ability to unlock the vehicle via the push botton on the handle, the need for a fob-based system is diminished.
