Having a remote car starter is great for those cold mornings when you want to have a warm car without ahaving to leave the warm confines of your home. Some different models can start your car from long distances, some can start your car with a synchronized scheduled start time, and there are even some remote car starters that will start your car from anywhere in the world with the use of GPS satellites. Viper car starters are very popular systems that can also be synchronized with your car's internal alarm system to not only remote start your car, but to lock/unlock and alarm your vehicle.
Audiovox Prestige car starters provide the same function at a smaller cost versus a higher-end unit like the Python Responder models. Some units such as the Python Respinder 592 HD have an LCD screen, one-mile range of operation, and the ability to charger itself through a mini-USB charging port. Since there are many different brands out there providing the same relative functionality, it is important to make sure the device you choose will function with your particular vehicle's security alarming computer. It is also important to try and stick with a brand name in this case. There are many knock-off remote starters that do not provide adequate reliability for some car alarm systems.
