    Daniel,

    Have a VF2 HSV GTS and have a couple of questions regarding functionality I would be interested in ;

    1. Looking for remote start (manual), I assume the recent workaround would suit ?
    2. Can the remote start rely on factory key instead of a separate controller (given factory key for manual has no remote start button) ?
    3. Looking for GPS tracking capability for personal/asset protection purposes . Can your systems provide this (via SMS paging etc) without need ongoing subscription costs ?
    4. What system and cost would suit ?
    5. In Newcastle NSW, installation options up this way anywhere ?

    Thanks,
    Michael

      Hi Michael.

      1. Yes this will work
      2. Always seperate key for the remote start (due to limit of no button on factory key)
      3. Only http://www.dronemobile.com is compatible but you can get a plan as low as $49 USD per year ($4 a month) for alerts but GPS is $119 USD per year ($14 a month)
      4. Start around $799 for this vehicle but with tracking they would be around $1199 installed (depending on features)
      5. We have a store Houseof Soundz up on central coast! That can help.

      Hope that helps.
      Thanks

      Daniel.

      We can install a kit its a hardwire install. There is no plug and play at this stage, we designed a kit but its still in testing the last car we tried on didn’t work 100%. That is only for the plug and play though.

    Hi,

    Is the kit for the Grand Cherokee plug and play?
    If not, how complicated is the install?

    • Daniel Gardener Author
      Daniel Gardener August 4, 2016

      We have a kit for the Grand Cherokee but it requires two stage programming and thus requires installation by a store.

      Where are you located?
