If the thieves want your car, they will get it nomatter what.
You must be driving ATX (saying this as I don't think there are starters for MTX but I could be wrong...)I would get it for a slight piece of mind, a remote start function would probably be a bigger selling feature for me.. man it was cold this morning... haha
Here is the newest and baddest alarm that I know of!!
New Compustar Pro 2W9000FM
New Brain: CM4000
New Remote: 2W9000FMR
Coded Valet SwitchCoded Valet Switch
Knock Sensor with coded knocking for disarm/unlock. This is incase you lock yourself out, you have a coded sequence for the "RPS" or known as "knock sensor" to allow you to gain access into the vehicle.
Upgradability: If you only installed the alarm portion, and wanted to add remote start, its a simple unplug, upgrade "brain" with remote start, add additional wires to hook up and you're done. Not removal of whole alarm unit, install of alarm & starter unit.
Saves you time and $$$$
If for example, someone was to set off your "warn" zone, your pager will beep with the warn. If they were to open a door right after that, your pager would not show you the door, because its still indicating to you its a "warn" trigger. Your alarm would be going off fully when the doors open but it will not page you with door open.
On this new unit, it will override more important zones such as door trigger, hood trigger, trunk trigger, over warn trigger.
Back-Up Battery input is now available on the compustar unit including the remote start unit.
Built-in Temperature sensor, that allows you to set up Coldstart AS WELL as WARMSTART. You can set it so that if your vehicles interior temperature drops below a certain degree, it will remote start as well if your interior temperature is above a certain degree it will remote start, to warm up or cool off your vehicle.
Obviously still the same great features, works on automatic and manual transmission vehicles. Also does diesel.
Improvements on the remote controller:
For manual transmission users, the pager has an icon that will indicate if remote start is available (if reservation mode is set)
Will also display auxilaries.
Temperature is displayed on the LCD
It has a time start. You can set what time you want your vehicle to start at for example 8am everyday.
Voltage check indication: Everytime you query your vehicle, it will show you a status of voltage of your vehicle.
Alarm clock: Say for example you park your vehicle at a meter or you park in a pay lot, you can set yourself an alarm clock that will count down for you to remind you that you have run out of time in a paid parking area.
Drivelock: Indicates that it is activated. It locks the vehicle when you start the vehicle for safety, and unlocks as you turn off your vehicle.
Nope, MTX. There are alot of starters for it, just gotta be careful as was stated... and I'm not totally sure about this parking with only the handbrake business..You must be driving ATX (saying this as I don't think there are starters for MTX but I could be wrong...)
