Re: Remote door locks and remote start with cell phone question

said by Hahausuck:

What do you mean?

Because to be a OnStar clone the device would have to have a cellular radio and thus be a subscription service to use.

Because the OP wants to start it with their PHONE.

Without a OnStar type technology on board this would have to be done via BlueTooth or WiFi somehow.

Well, if it uses the cell network there is going to be a monthly cost involved.

Requirement #4: "A Viper SmartStart service plan."

Yep!
