It's nice being able to start up your car from virtually anywhere so as long as you have a connection. It works good for the most part, but there have been a few times it refused to unlock or start up the car. I had to wait for a bit and try again. I did have this installed professionally and would expect it to work ALL the time. Additionally, it does not indicate the status of the car. For instance, once you start to car, you will hear an engine noise coming from the phone. However, once the noise stops, you'll have no idea as to how long or how much longer you have till the car shuts off due to its timer. It also does not indicate if your car in locked or unlocked once you exit the app. So should you unlock the car and later decide to check if you actually unlocked it, your out of luck. Audiovox should include a status tab in the app so you can go back and see what the status of the car is.
Had it install on my f350 truck works great and the gps tracking works great
I live here in Miami it's so hot very day. Now I can remote start my truck from inside my job and when I come out it's nice and cold . I'd called Auto Alarm Specialist here in Miami they came out to my job and installed my unit in 2 hours I was up and running they help me setup the app walk me thru everything I needed to know about the carlink and my car alarm system. Now I sleep like a baby at night :)
Paid quite a bit
Considering the price this system costs, it would be nice to know the status of the vehicle. I travel a lot. I would really like to be able to start my vehicle from out of town and know for sure that it has stopped or started. Vehicle status in the app would be great considering the installed unit does actually drain your battery when your car is not started for over a week. I never had that problem until installing the alarm system. I had left my vehicle for upwards of a month and longer, but it would still start. PLEASE PROVIDE A STATUS ALERT in the app!
