One of the most reliable remote start systems Compustar has ever built, the venerable Pro R3-SS (RFX-P2wR3-SS aka RF-P2wR3-SS) has been a home-run for many years. Simply put, if you’re in the market for a remote car starter, the first system you should consider is the Pro R3-SS. As we have long preached, the three most important features of a remote start are 1) two way communication 2) long range and 3) great reliability. In our opinion, the R3-SS is not only one of the best remote controls Compustar has even released, it’s probably the best from any company, at any time, ever, considering the value.
So what sets the Pro R3-SS apart from the rest?
We’re glad you asked because we’re so excited to share. Not to be confused with the Compustar Prime series RF-2wR3-FM, the Pro series RF-P2wR3-SS, aka the Pro R3-SS is a culmination of some of the best products Compustar has ever built. It takes the reliability of the earlier generation models, combined with the power of the Pro T12’s DSST transmission technology and wraps it up into a small and sleek 1 button remote control similar to the very thin remote control found in the popular Slice series. For good measure, the circuit board is based upon an FTX series remote that has been rock solid for new car dealers for years. Oh, and it’s water resistant too!
Can you tell we love this unit?
Well, we’re just getting started. Unlike so many other two way remote start systems, the Pro R3-SS includes (1) two-way remote control along with the DRX1, Drone Mobile LTE Smart Phone Module! This upgrade should not be overlooked. For about the same price as the previous generation, this model adds the Drone Module which used to sell for several hundre dollars extra.
We’re not done yet.
As if being one of the most durable and best values already isn’t enough, Compustar features a second to the top of the line DSST antenna system in this unit. DSST stands for Digital Spread Spectrum Technology and DSST gives you the best range and power, rated at 2 miles maximum of range. Of course you’re not often two miles away from your car and that’s not why it’s important. It’s important since the two mile range equates to more POWER. This power is what allows the Compustar Pro series units to start in locations other brands only dream of. Mayo Hospital, Taylor Corp buildings, the State Hospital in St. Peter, the Verizon Wireless Civic Center and the River Hills Mall are just a few of the places DSST works great. The FM models work out to about 3,000′ which the Prog R3-SS increases to 2 miles. An incredible value and nearly 4 times more powerful.
The BEST warranty too?
If you’ve ever looked or had an honest salesmen discuss other brands of remote starts, you might notice the fine print that says their remote controls only have a one year warranty! Yes, only a year on the part that takes by far the most abuse being carried around in your pocket, getting dropped on occasion and just generally beat up. Well, Compustar has a THREE YEAR remote control warranty on their PRO series of products. They firmly believe in their products and back it with the best warranty in the industry. And why not, they are the most reliable!
