    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 ?

    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 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.

    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.

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

  28. 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.
