Remote Car Starters
At Sounds Incredible Mobile, we offer a wide range of remote car starters specifically designed for newer vehicles equipped with passive factory security systems known as an immobilizer system. These remote car starters include the necessary software and hardware to retain and interface with your vehicle’s passive OEM alarm system. We carry quality brands like Viper and Compustar that are compatible with both Push-to-Start and turn key ignition systems as well as Automatic or Manual transmission. One of the more popular options we have is designed to work off your factory keyless entry remote. Simply press the lock button 3 times in a row on your existing smart key or keyless entry remote and your car will remotely start.
Use your OEM Remote
This option is very convenient because you don’t have to carry any additional remote controls with you. The only downside is you are limited to the range of the factory keyless entry remote and for most vehicles, that range is between 150 – 250 ft. If your vehicle is just parked outside in the driveway or you can see it from your office window at work, that may be all the range you need. If you’re not sure, one way to test is to simply try locking your car from where you’d be remote starting it. If you can lock the car from this distance you’d also be able to remote start the car from this distance. This option is activated by pressing the lock button 3 times in a row on your factory keyless entry remote or smart key. This type of remote car starter is usually $399.99 installed* plus tax, but prices can vary depending on the year, make, model and transmission.

Extended Range Options
Perhaps your OEM remote has insufficient range for your parking situation at home or at the office. Most OEM remotes will provide 150 – 250 ft in range in a line of site parking situation. If the range of your OEM remote is inadequate, please consider one of our extended range models available such as the Compustar Prime 1-way one button featuring up to 1500 ft in range.
This one button style remote is simple and easy to operate. Simply press and hold the button until the key light on the remote flashes, then release. Thanks to its small, sleek design, it won’t take up too much space on your key chain.
This type of remote is considered a 1-way remote. It sends the signal one way to the vehicle. With this model, you would have to see the vehicle to have any type of visual confirmation the car received the signal to start. The parking lights will come on, so if you can see the vehicle, you will have visual confirmation. If you are in a parking situation where you cannot see your vehicle, you may want to consider one of our 2-way style remotes. A 2-way style remote will confirm from the remote that the vehicle has in fact received the signal to start.

Extended Range with 2-Way confirmation
If you work at a large facility such as a school campus, hospital or shopping plaza, the range on your factory remote control probably isn’t going to be sufficient.
Or perhaps you are a commuter and you take the train every day. How nice would it be to start your car 2 miles from your stop? With any of these parking situations, a 2-way extended range remote car starter would be desirable and beneficial.

Benefits of 2-way Extended Range Remote Car Starters
Unlike a factory remote control, a 2-way remote will actually confirm back to you the car received the signal to start. If you can’t see your car when you’re remote starting it, how else would you know it received the signal and started?
With a 2-way Viper remote car starter such as the DS4+ with D9857V, the remote control will provide you with a green LED confirmation light and audible chirp to let you know the vehicle received the signal to start. If you’re too far away and out of range, you will get a red light and error tone to let you know it didn’t start.
Similarly the Viper DS4+ with D9756V includes a 2-way confirmation LCD display with easily recognizable icons to quickly relay vehicle status. This remote will display whether or not the vehicle is locked, remote started and even display the remaining run time on the remote car starter.
With up to 1 mile in range, these 2-way Viper remote car starters are perfect for anyone who has to park pretty far away at home, at school or at work.
