One way. It ties into the oem remote and you just click the lock 3x to remote start.

There are add ons though to have 2 way features and a 2 way remote. Without those addons it works using the oem remote or included keyfob

I have a nice 5906 remote start alarm. The 2 way remote was just sh it. Buttons pushed way too easy. Design on how the key ring attached to it was horrible. It broke off so I emailed customer service many times so I could just buy the crappy little pin and they, as usual, didn't respond or help. I ended up having to buy like a little pouch off Amazon. Then the screen backlight stopped working and eventually I ran over it. $180 farking dollars to replace it so I just use the one way $30 ish extra remote that it came with and I am happy with it.

No it's not true. Manual cars can get it installed. There's just a safety process you need to follow in shutting off the car.

I just picked this up. It includes one small single button one-way remote and also includes short range Bluetooth control so you can start it from your phone.

I got my compustar installed yesterday that i picked up back in December. Word of warning the bestbuy guy lied like crazy trying to upsell
me.


first he asked me how much i paid (regardless of what the retail price was). The second he heard that he said "oh you have an old model, you should upgrade to the new ones that support a t-harness. It's a cleaner install, and takes the install time from 3 hours to 1.5.

then he says the upgrade would cost $300 + an extra $200 if I want the two way remotes like my model has.

I tell him stick with the model I gave him. He says "ok ...see you 3 hours"

so I get a lyft back to my office and my phone rings 20 minutes later (1 hour since he told me 3 hours)
..."it's done, come pick it up"

Shady story above about the post-sale upsell attempt. That would land his ass in hot water if management found out.

An important note about buying installation. Pretty much every Best Buy, especially in colder states, has an amazing wait to get an installation appointment. Here in Illinois the earliest appointment I could get was seven weeks from now (and after an hour drive to Wisconsin). Every BBY in my regional area has a wait of several weeks for a remote start install. My local BBY's car install guy got hurt and is out so it will be several weeks until the new guy moves down from Wisconsin and goes through the training program.

At least we'll all be ready for next winter.

Can't tell from the description, does this include the cell phone module? I mean the cellular signal piece, not Bluetooth.

Does this also come with a security system or is it just a remote start?
