    We have this remote start on both of are vehicles and love the 2 way capabilities. The Drone App for us works great but we only use it for the free month. It's a bit expensive for the monthly subscription unless you want to pay 5 years ahead to get a better price and I still think it's over priced. If the monthly charges ever go down then we would defiantly do it to allow us to have another way to start the vehicles plus all the other features. I also payed more money up front to get the 2 way remote because otherwise it's just a one way remote that come with the kit.

    I got this remote start for my Tacoma after reading many reviews and the Compustar remote was well reviewed and complete. I hate the cold so I got this so that I could pre-warm my car in the winter. And I cant say enough good things about this remote start!!! For starters its got a GREAT range! Also the remote will indicate via flashing of the blue light to let you know that the remote start recieved your command. This remote start works great soo glad I went with this unit. I also want to commend the Best Buy geek squad installers. He was very professional and knowledgeable and informed me of the process ahead of time. WOULD DEFINETLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE LOOKING TO ADD A REMOTE START!!

    Great car remote starter, no more freezing cold once I get in my car on a chilly winter. And I can start my car from 150ft w/c I really need on a freezing day. Highly recommended!

    I can’t believe that I have driven through 30 winters without a remote starter. Getting to a warm and defrosted car is priceless and the good news is this remote starter is affordable. There are upgrades like the drone app that makes it possible to start from anywhere but if you’re looking for a one- button starter that can unlock or shut your car back off then this is the one. Once you purchase the starter an appointment is made for the install which is quick, clean and professional. The install tech goes over the operation of the remote thoroughly with you before you drive off satisfied. Thanks Mike at Augusta, Me. Best Buy!

    Does not come with installation kit, harness or installation manual. In the box you get only naked modules and remote fob that's it. !!!!NO T-Harness!!!! Included!! They expect you to give your car to their installation team to get it installed in your car !!!NO WAY!!! Compustart website is just a primitive ugly set of useless links. You expect to find any manuals there? Fugget about it!

    You cannot beat the quality in craftsmanship and functionality for this price. The Compustar RS1B-DC3 1-Button Remote Starter with included installation from Best Buy is simply awesome. My installer was able to flawlessly integrate the remote starter into my 1999 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban! I have since jettisoned my factory remote control and rely only on my Compustar remote, now. Door locks, unlocks and engine start/stops, all with visual confirmation from my classic truck, from a one button remote is...simply awesome. HIGHLY recommended!!!!

    Purchase the Compustar 1-Button Remote Starter for my 2015 Jeep Unlimited. The Compustar Remote Starter works flawlessly and very easy to use. The techs at Bestbuy that installed the system in my vehicle are knowledgeable and professional in their work. I have purchased two more of the Compustar Remote Starter for family member in 2017 Christmas gifts (Buick and Honda vehicles). Purchased another one for my fiancé vehicle which is a 2018 Hyundai. Like I said they all work flawlessly. I would highly recommend it to friends And families.

    I had a remote start on my old car and decided I couldn't live without it on my new car (2016 Mazda CX-5). When I went in for my appointment, I requested for them to program the module with the 3x lock feature so that I could start the car with my factory key fob. It works flawlessly! The only things that I have noticed are that you can't walk up and open the hatch (it's not a power hatch on the 2016) while it's running without hitting the unlock button on the key fob first or else the engine shuts off and that you have to have your climate control/heated seats set before you shut the car off if you want them to turn on when you remote start. I wouldn't consider either of those things issues, but there isn't a lot of information on how the system works on a CX-5 specifically and just wanted to save some people from endlessly researching!

    Remote start is literally one button held for about 3 seconds. Lights flash so you can see connection has been made. Fob also controls lock and unlock for doors. Car cannot be driven without a key in the ignition, so no worries about it "driving away." Just need to remember to set heat or A/C when you turn off your car, and you'll have a nice warm or cool car when you come out next time. Car will run in remote start mode for about 15 minutes. Took about 2 hours for BB to install, so plan accordingly.

    Works great

    I bought this for two cars and they both work great. I wanted this system because I can expand on it in the future (App controllable, GPS tracking). My only complaint is the remote start will turn the engine off when any door is opened versus when the brake pedal is pressed, which is how it was with my old remote start system. I wish there was a way to switch the engine over from the remote startup to the actual running engine so the AC or heater would always keep running, like my old system. But otherwise it’s very dependable and works great, I’ve had them for 3 months now.

    Dont get any other remote start if your installing on 2017 ram 1500! Viper sucks! Had it in for a few months with nothing but problems, wouldn't unlock doors, sometimes would shut off randomly and it costed more then the compustar. Now that I have the compustar it works flawlessly, never had a issue once! Great buy and was the cheaper one! Great distance with the remote and you can program it to your factory key fob. Very satisfied with this one :)

    I was hesitant originally because of the price, but this turned out to be one of the best investments ever! For starters, the mechanic at best buy was very efficient and didn't take super long to install the kit. He showed me how to work the remote starter and all the little tips and tricks. In terms of the quality of the kit itself, I personally love it. I can start my car from a pretty good range of distance. For example, if im checking out at the store and leaving I can start my car from there. Or when I'm leaving from home its very convenient. When you start the car it only turns on the ignition and the heat. The rest of the car is off which is good for saving the battery live. Overall, I really recommend this product!

    I started researching remote starters and found this one online at Best Buy. I was still hesitant because I wanted to ensure it would fit my needs. After talking to the technician, I purchased the starter and made the appointment after my work hours, which was fabulous. A few hours later, it was installed and it's working great. It has great range, because I park at the farthest point in the parking lot at my work and my car starts when I push the button from inside my office.

    The Best Remote Start

    Posted .

    I love it. It took about 4 hours for installation. And I did choose the two way with the Drone. I love that you can turn it on from your phone as well and I can see if all my doors are lock or unlock. I’m so excited. And I have two little ones, so I’m glad they don’t have to sit in a cold car while it warms up. Best decision I ever made. It is set for my car to run for 15mins.

    The Compustar RS1B-DC3 kit (starter unit is actually a CM-DC3) for our 2008 Honda Odyssey is perfect. It's a basic 1- button 1-way system, but it works great. Never fails to work and Geek Squad installation was also perfect. Recommend to anyone. Especially on sale like I found it.
