    Happy customer alert

    |
    Posted .

    Ive Only had it for a day but so far so good! It is everything I wanted. I love the little noises that the remote makes that lets me know the automatic start worked. That way I do not have to run outside in 10 degree weather. My car is all warmed up and ready for driving right away! Now hopefully i can get to work on time because I won’t have to scrape my car windows!

    I have had this about 3 weeks. So far I would rate it excellent. I had it installed in Plover Wisconsin and the installer was awesome and very through. I am waiting for them to go on sale again so I can purchase one for my son.

    Got this for my daughter, Installed by Best Buy. It was 9 deg out the other morning. She loves it, Best Buy tech programed it to work with the original key fob that came with the car.

    2-Way is the Way!

    Posted .
    Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.

    There are 2 stories to everything. The 2 stories for this Compustar - 2-Way Remote Start System Model:CS4905S-KIT are installation and the system. I'll start with the installation. The 2 installers at the Northtown Mall location were all business. They were young but experienced was my take. They were working there tails off when I dropped off the car and when I picked it up. They were able to answer all my questions and then some. I wish I had read some of the manual and such as the started comes from the factory with a 25 minute run time. I would have preferred 15 minutes. The guys already were working on 2 cars and I didn't want to wait as they offered to change the setting but would have to finish the cars they were working on before getting to my car. I respect that. My mistake. The installer told me it would take 2 hours. They called me at the 1 hour mark telling me it was completed. How awesome is that! Overall very impressed with installation. Now about the starter. I had it installed in a new 2021 Mazda 6 that has push button door locks and push button starter with no issues 3 weeks ago. Yes, the remote works from long distances through concrete walls and glass as advertised. I work in a concrete building more than 200 yards from the car's parking spot. The remote starts the car every time and tells me that it has been started. The reason 2-way starters are the way to go, immediate feedback. Here is one of the annoyances of the starter. When you activate the remote to start the car, the remote chirps LOUDLY once. When the car starts, the remote LOUDLY and ANOYINGLY chirps back 3 lengthy times. There is no way to change the volume of the chirp that I have discovered. The installation techs didn't know of a means to quite the chirps either. I suggest placing the remote in a deep well insulated pocket. Best of all the feedback is with in 10 to 20 seconds. Other than a small sensor that is placed on my windshield near the rearview mirror, there are no cosmetic changes to see that would indicate you have this remote installed. I took the car in for its first factory recommended service at the dealer and they didn't say a thing. Warranty still in order I would presume. I am very happy with the remote and the purchase. I purchased this on a daily deal and what a deal it was, $300 included installation. I would still be happy had I paid the regular price of $450 to $500. There is no subscription services fees that must be paid to use this remote starter. Had one of those remote starts before and would never recommend to anyone. Sure you can start your car from Iceland but do you really need to?

    Exelent remote starter

    Exelent remote starter. Good range. The fact that you receive confirmation back to know if your car did start or not is a plus ( the confirmation doesn't work every single time 100% but most of the time it does) If you have a push to start car this is the way to go. You hit the brake and you don't even notice the transition from the remote starter to the car to take over. Observation: my car is a mitsubishi push to start. If I just tap the brake Nothing turns off, not even the radio, but if I hit the brake all the way down and kind of hold it for a second Everything inside the car turns off for a second and comes back on, I mean the radio, lights, etc, but not the engine, Engine still running but radio and ligts turns off. So When I get in the car I just close the door and give a litte tap to the brake and nothing turns off. I don't know why is like that, but I like it that way I dont even notice the switch from the remote starter to the car : )

    I haven’t had this installed for very long, but man has it made life a little more convenient. Install at Hoover, AL store (Russ) was very neat and clean. Works perfectly. This product has quite a few customizable auxiliary options, which is a HUGE bonus. I highly recommend if you’re in the market for a remote start system.

    Great remote starter!

    Owned for 1.5 years when reviewed.

    I purchased this remote starter for my wife's car as she hates getting into a cold car during the winter time. Purchase of this remote starter system included installation. Once purchased, I scheduled a time for installation. Basic installation covered everything for the car and I was told nothing additional needed to be purchased. I was informed that the installation would take about 3 hours but they finished about half hour ahead of schedule. We've had the remote starter for about 18 months now and have not had a single issue. Remote signal distance is pretty good and love that the two way remote alerts us that the car actually did turn on. With our old remote starter we would have to visually check on the car to ensure that it was actually on. The only negative is the second remote included with this is only a 1 way remote. I would have paid a few more dollars to have a second 2-way remote. Other than that, this is a great remote starter and my wife is happy. Yet another great product with a high WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor).

    Purchased the 800' kit one evening, the next morning this kit was onsite for cheaper than the 800' kit! Simply returned and purchased this kit. Install was quick and painless drop off. Best Buy mobile was very disconnected from the store itself. Even a little hard to find. Was also asked why I didn't pick up the product for install. But I was never told to, just to arrive for install. System itself if great. I work behind a wall of servers and computers and it still reaches my car about 200 feet away. I prefer the silver remote because I get the response. Multiple times the black remote has failed and I didn't know. The new remote replaces the old remote until you enter the car. But then (for me on Kia Sorrento without push to start) I have to return to my original remote. Very happy with the product. Will buy again for my husbands car.

    Great product, remotes work great..i love the 2 way feature. Only downside is if you have a lexus or Toyota its a 98% chance the vehicle will turn off when you open the door. But the remote start system works great....if anyone knows how to fix the shut off feature on a Lexus please let me know. Thanks

    So far, so good. Been using the remote start for a few weeks, primarily to open the truck doors, but tested remote start a few times and everything looks to be working as it should. My bad for not looking closer before buying because I thought this unit came with vehicle security. For $99, we can have the security module added. :-( We would be much happier if security was included in the original price, but again the unit seems to be working OK.

    this is a great remote starter , the only thing I Didn't like was my local BestBuy service they reschedule my appointment three times they are super rude with no patience at all, they tried to tell me this remote wont work in my jeep and tried to install a different remote starter (cheaper-Easier) but once I told them I Have the same remote in the same type of car same year they change their minds like "Uh really ok lets try and see" and voila they finally installed my Remote , so I hope this information will help some people out there

    I don't care for the central main calling in Ordering number. The gal was nice but I really wanted to talk to someone from the Auto Installation Dept to ask questions directly. I asked for a Remote Start with an "Alarm System". I got in the mail just the Remote Start. I had to buy the Alarm System at the store. The system for the Remote Start works as it should. But it was a hassle to wait so very long to have both systems installed that day. I'll give the System a 5 stars But I would go to a business that does this install everyday and that is the only thing they do next time. There was only 1 tech that could do this install at Best Buy and Not every Best Buy does these installs.
