So your vehicle has to be parked "with signal"
what does that mean?
3g? Wifi?

edit looked it up.
Its 3g or Wifi...

hope you dont live out in the country lol

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Just needs a cell signal. You could start your car from across the country, or unlock it.

Not quite. Your phone has to have 3g or wifi from what i have read.
from the site:

"With SmartStart, there is no such thing as "too far away." SmartStart works over the 3G cellular network or over Wi-Fi, giving you virtually unlimited range anywhere in the U.S. As long as your vehicle is in range of a GSM cellular signal and your phone has a 3G or Wi-Fi signal, SmartStart will work."

so you can only use it if your phone is in a 3g zone. And ATT's 3g sucks

That looks really cool. I wish Verizon would hurry up and bring the iPhone. Sucks that it's only for the iPhone until then (well at least for Verizon users).

I want this. Primarily for the alerts. It'll show you if you had an alarm from basically anywhere. I have factory remote start and wonder if they can integrate it...

no jeep here...
