    Drains battery....

    Posted

    This product is great. I had it for close to two years now. But unfortunately, after time it drains my battery completely. No real reason. Honda was kind enough to replace my battery and Best Buy was kind enough to re install the device and explained how I need to unlock my car (I have to use the remote start key ring they provide. I can't use the app and I can't use my actual key). Well, the key ring remote start stopped unlocking my car so I started manually unlocking my car. Guess what. Battery is dying again. This battery is a month old. DO NOT BUY THIS REMOTE START. I am not taking anything away from the services at Best Buy. They were wonderful at the Homestead Waterfront location. Store number 882. They did everything and anything for me. But I am in the process of scheduling an appointment to get this uninstalled from my car.

    We use this daily now and I LOVE the unlimited range on the cell phone with the app. Very convenient and easy to use. I also travel throughout the US a couple times each year with the family and aside from the obvious benefit of getting into a nice warm car when it is cold we have discovered an additional benefit on a recent trip to Phoenix. In the 110+ degree heat the car was almost impossible to get into until you opened the doors, started it and letting it cool down a few minutes. The steering wheel was ridiculously hot! My wife was the one that recommended we try using it in the heat of Phoenix the first time. WOW...what a difference. What it does for a cold car in the winter is identical what it does to a hot car in the summer. We were immediately able to sit in the car and drive away without the typical wait. I will never get into a freezing cold or melting hot car without this product again. Period. THANK YOU!!!!

    At the last second I opted to purchase the smartphone adapter and I am sure glad I did. The basic Viper remote start is worthless. It rarely works and it is only one way. I have a wall between my vehicle and my office and need to use my phone as the 1000ft remote will not work from inside a building even though I am only 20 ft from my car. Line of sight ONLY. The phone feature rocks. Yes, you must pay a annual fee but with that you get a two way system, verification if the car started, did not start, lock doors, unlock etc. Add the GPS and you have a full set of other options. The phone feature is all I use now so go with the smartphone feature and you will be pleased. FYI the smartphone needs to be on a cell network not wifi to be functional.

    New thing with a 13 year old alarm..plug and play 791xv esp2..SMART START FAILS WHEN NORMAL ANTENNA IS PLUGGED IN DISCONNECT THE ANTENNA AND ITS PERFECT.why would you want to mess with the old system anymore. My remotes are 80 bucks to replace. Fail once a year. Hook a smartstart up to your bitwriter port, power and ground. I discovered the flaw on accident myself yesterday and i didnt expect viper to know that flaw on a 13 year old system.so i thought I would share as you will never figure it out otherwise.other systems may experience same issue..Im calling viper monday so they may issue a service bulletin..your welcome..Im just happy it worked!

    My was really looking forward to adding this module to my Viper alarm system. I had been undecided for several months until I saw that it was on sale. Ordered online along with install, it arrived promptly and I scheduled install. I traveled all the way across town and took time off work exited about my new gadget only to be informed that the item I received was used and had been preciously activated so it was useless. Fortuneltly the staff at the store took great care off me and processed my refund, they did a great job. I am very disappointed that Best Buy would sell me a used item without my knowledge, I would have understood if it was stated in the item description but is was described as new.

    I had to purchase this module (for wife's car) because AT&T was no longer supporting the service (3G I believe) needed for Viper to run. If Sprint is available in your area it should continue to work, however we don't have sprint. This now runs on Verizon. The system as a whole works pretty well, though there are some issues from time to time. I switched to Drone Mobile on my car and while it's app needs a little work I am much happier with that. I was going to switch my wife to Drone but this was significantly cheaper.

    The box gives the impression that this is a stand alone item when it actually requires a complete remote start system already installed, this is just an upgrade. Plus you have to pay a monthly service fee! My husband purchased it as a gift and was told b 2 different sales associates that it was a stand alone system. Very disappointing to find out I had to pay another $200 for a lesser version.

    Was a great add-on, gave me the added range I needed to make the remote start usable in my situation of work and parking lot location. Mobile app handy , eliminates need of key fob. Only complaint is mobile app won't let me do silent lock or unlock like key fob, I like the silent feature at home as leave pretty early, or I should say the neighbors like the silent feature
