Press the button on the remote ... I put in a starter, did you?

I snuggled into the heated seat as the temps dropped like a rock backing out of the garage through the plumes of exhaust on the radio screen. Noted the plunge below 20F (I know..thats high for you guys) and smiled at my buddy the climate control who won't blow air at me until it'* warmed up. The projector headlights and 9006 HID fog lights ripped through the cold darkness while I sipped some coffee and turned up the 80'* rock being pumped through the amp

If I put one on the truck it would have to have a long range. My garage is kind of far from the house.

I ordered a Viper Smart Start... With

Viper 5902 Responder HD Color SuperCode SST 2-Way Security and Remote Start System

Yeah I can be pretty much anywhere I have cell service and start my truck LOL.

We are working on something that will allow me to run multiple vehicles from 1 phone

Quote:
With Viper SmartStart, there is no such thing as "too far away." Viper SmartStart works over the 3G cellular network or over Wi-Fi, giving you virtually unlimited range anywhere in the U.*. As long as your vehicle is in range of a GSM cellular signal and your phone has a 3G or Wi-Fi signal, SmartStart will work.

Makes me wonder why GM hasn't implemented something like this via OnStar. Unless there is and I just didn't know it.
