Sweet Sounds in Mankato would like to talk about why a cheap remote starter is a bad idea. In most cases, consumers quantify the performance of a remote car starter by its range. In reality, many behind-the-scenes considerations have to be taken into account when shopping for a system to control your vehicle. This article will provide some insights into why a quality remote starter is the only choice for the safe and reliable operation of your vehicle.
Sweet Sounds has been installing Compustar remote car starters since 1998. These systems are tested in the harshest conditions in Alaska and have served our Minnesota and Northern Iowa clients reliably for years.
Compustar products are different from cheap remote starters in every way. The electronic components chosen by Compustar to build their starters offer a wider temperature-operating tolerance. This ensures the system works just as reliably when it’s -30 in your car as it does when it’s 125. Compustar remotes are water-resistant and feature a durable case design that can handle the challenges of being sat on or dropped. Nobody wants the buttons on their remotes to break, leaving them frustrated and potentially stranded.
Vehicle Integration Features
Compustar remote starters are designed specifically to work with iDataLink digital vehicle integration products. Without reliable communication with your vehicle’s data network, installing a remote starter on a modern vehicle would be impossible. Nobody offers more reliable data communication solutions than iDatalink.
Compustar systems provide us with all the necessary inputs and outputs to control your vehicle reliably. We will ensure your climate controls activate properly when the vehicle starts. We can also interface with the rear window defroster, heated seats and even heated steering wheels on most vehicles to increase your comfort on a cold winter morning. Accessories like power trunk release, motorized tailgates and power sliding doors also can be controlled remotely.
When we install a Compustar remote car starter, your vehicle is as safe when remote started as it is while sitting locked in your driveway. Your doors remain locked and the vehicle can’t be driven away without someone using the factory key or fob.
Remote Control Range
Compustar starter systems are modular. You can choose a simple model with 800-foot range and a one-button remote when we install your system and upgrade to a 2-mile range, two-way remote with an LCD display a year or two from now. This flexibility has been available for the past 15 years, so even older systems can be upgraded to the latest technologies.
We don’t take any shortcuts with our installations. We never use T-taps or crimp connectors, and we don’t twist and tape wires together. We solder every connection and protect them with premium vinyl electrical tape. It takes a few seconds longer, but we can be confident that every connection will be secure and reliable for the life of the vehicle.
