    Has quite the range on it. Didn't know this one was a 1 way unit so it doesn't notify you if car has started or not, unless you can see your lights as it will turn park lights on when it has started. I have been having problems with my door locks 2 weeks after the install. My doors will lock with key in the ignition so I have to make sure to take then with me if I have to get out with it running. And now one great door won't lock and the other won't unlock which causes my horn to honk multiple times. Its embarrassing when I drop off Uber Riders and pick them up. They think I'm honking at them and they think I'm messing with them with the door locks. I'm taking my car back to best buy where it was installed to have them look at it. Also the spring under the hood broke a day after it was all installed. It was installed to high and the hood must have snapped it. All in all, I would recommend getting a remote start. Not sure if my problems are with this brand, model, or the install at the store.

    I've had this same starter on my truck for several years. It works well, however the range is certainly suspect to environmental conditions. I'm good from about a hundred feet on mine, we'll see if this one is any better. I like the fact that it comes with 2 remotes and I just learned when this was installed in my daughter's vehicle, it has a "pit stop" feature where you press the start button while in the running vehicle, it places the car in a stand-by mode which allows you to remove the key and lock the doors while keeping the vehicle running at the same time allowing you to run in to your local convenience store and keep the car warm. Surprisingly, I have it on my older version as well. Would have been nice to have known that when the first one was installed. No issues with either at this time, Beware of the "valet mode" which disables the starting system. I had to take my truck back in to the Geek Squad Mobile guys to learn the hard way ($). So far it's a quality product.

    The installers don't know the product......

    I purchased this as a daily deal.....well it was no deal at all. I called 2 different best buy stores near me and they couldn't even tell me what additional parts were needed. It took at least 35 minutes on the phone with each store to realize that they do not know what they are doing. We have one of those rare vehicles.....a 2015 Toyota highlander....who ever heard of those right?? Finally, I got a hold of one of their 'master installers' with 15 years experience. He told me he didn't feel comfortable installing this on a new car. BTW, the package I purchased included 2 separate installation packages. Why would Best Buy sell a remote car starter WITH installation and then not have it available for installation in any store. This is a total joke and I am returning this tomorrow. I can't even tell you how unimpressed I am with Best Buy after this....total loss of confidence.... I would love to hear from a customer service agent about this experience...I bet I won't hear a peep....

    Drone remote starter install for honda accord 2007

    The kit provided all the parts needed for my car. I only had to pay a $5.00 materials fee to Bestbuy. Overall, I'm satisfied with the purchase and overall experience with Geeksquad mobile. I was quoted 3 hours for the full install and they completed it on time. The installer assisted with registering the free 90 day Drone service using the computer in the install bay. He then walked me to my car which was parked outside the install bay and demoed the remote starter features. This type of service is probably YMMY per Bestbuy store but if you are in New England definitely get your remote starter installed from Bestbuy in Portsmouth,NH. For those wondering about the Drone app. I use it with no issues on an Iphone 6+ and my wife uses it daily from her Samsung Note 3, again with no issues. An added bonus is, my Iphone gets a notification every time the remote starter is activated from either my wife's or my phone.

    I got this along with a Geek Squad installation for a good price on my Sienna. Most things works as it supposed to. for some things I still need my OEM remote. So I have to carry both. for an example, this does not have a way to open the power sliding doors. Also if you hadn't stated the car with the remote start, it will not unlock the rear door. If the car was remote-started it will unlock all doors at the same time, but not otherwise. The range is not so good. you pretty much have to see the car for it to work. As I found out after from the manual, the antenna is supposed to be installed horizontally, but the Geek Squad guy had it installed vertically. Not sure if that has anything to do with the range.

    1st. the installer doesnt know what he is doing.. 2nd. we told him we cant pick up the car and he said its fine and we will keep the car inside the garage. so i change my mind and pick up the car instead. car is on the parking lots :( not inside the garage. 3rd. this thing discharge my battery 2 times. called road side assistance on my own money. bring the car back and tell them what happen . he said hes gonna fix it. he called us and he said car is ready. day after. the battery got discharge again..so we just let him take it out of the car and have a refund. 4th. u have to program the remote before u leave the car. or else it will not work :)) goodluck to those people going to buy this product

    This is a great bundle. It works like a champ every time. The Best Buy installer was awesome as well. Not only is the installation top notch, but he explained how everything worked. One Pro: I like how it automatically locks my truck after I remotely start it. My wife has a different brand and it doesn't have this feature. One con: I had to pay extra to upgrade the remotes. The remotes that come with this guy are pretty lame. The Smartphone option is pretty sweet but it requires a monthly fee which I refuse to do. The remotes I purchased were around $100(?) so beware. All in all I am happy with this purchase. Another solid win by Best Buy.

    Awesome Units

    Purchased 2 of these units, one for myself and one for my wife. No more having to go outside in the cold to start our vehicles. Lock, unlock, and rear opening hatch features are all functional and nice to have as well. There's also a feature that allows you to leave your vehicle running and locked at a convenience store if you're just running in to grab something (most newer vehicles don't allow you to lock your doors while the vehicle is running) Range is much farther than any factory remote starts, very pleased overall.
