A:AnswerManufacturer website about page shows Compustar was started in the US by Firstech in 1995 and iDataStart was started in Canada by Automotive Data Solutions in 2005 -- looks like both companies partnered up in 2021 so I don't think you'll have a problem with either brand since they've been around for a while.
Compustar kit is a few years old but its cheaper on sale -- it has 3000ft max range and comes with one 2way remote and one 1way remote.
iDataStart kit looks like a recently upgraded version of their old HC3 system but costs more -- it has 6000ft max range and comes with two 2way remotes.
Get the Compustar on sale if you're on a budget or don't need extra range otherwise pay more for iDataStart on sale for longer range and a second 2way remote. You won't get close to the max range with either system in the real world due to interference from other things so I would cut the range numbers in half to get a better idea of actual range for most people
A:AnswerThe remote can be used to lock and unlock the door as well as start the vehicle. The key must be used to put in the ignition on position for the vehicle to keep running once the brake is engaged.
A:AnswerA cheery good morning.
We incurred no additional charges from BB in connection with the purchase and installation (Includd) of the remote starter for my wife's 2016 Nissan Rogue with push button start. To date, it has operated flawlessly as did the BB installers.
A:AnswerThat is totally normal. It prevents car from running engine all day long if you forget to turn it off.
I got installed more than 8 cars and they all turned off in 15 minutes. ( i got compustar though)
