So you do have to leave the key in the ignition for remote start. How good is the security part of the compustar? will it disable the car if someone gets in and turns the key over? since the key will be in the ignition when parked I wouldn't want a remote start. A theif would be like oh boy a free honda civic, keys alarm remote start and everything. Maybe a diffrent story with lojack installed, but still then you would have to find the car. So whats the point of remote start?unplugged said:the only remote start w/ security I know that works with a manual transmission which has the neutral safety in mind is the Compustar. Basically, when you leave the car, you leave it running in neutral. You close the door, then arm it. The motor will shut off after 5 seconds or so. This is a pretty cool safety feature b/c it won't let you arm it if you turn the engine off yourself. By leaving the car running and in neutral, the system knows that when you remote start the car later, it won't start and stall.
~racnjsn04~ said:Wow, that's a lot of features for one alarm system. What's the best price you've seen on the compustar system? About how much do you think it would cost for install?
