Ratings and Reviews
I park my car far away from where I work so often, the remote doesn’t always reach. Voila, an app based solution! Or so I thought. Had my new car for a week and extremely frustrated and disappointed that the remote start and lock/unlock on the SXM Guardian only works sporadically. More times no than yes. And it takes forever for the app to either successfully reach the car and perform the task or reject. The majority of times it is a fail. I’m in a flat populated area with great cell coverage. A note to the developer, you have to do better than this - based on the 1 star average it is clear that your product has some serious flaws. I’m hoping you can update and improve it sooner than later. No way will I be paying for this after the trial is over unless significant changes happen. This feature was important to me when I purchased my car so hopefully Jeep/Chrysler will also read this and take some action. My wife’s car has OnStar. It has the same remote app functions and works perfectly. Not a single flaw.
Haven't had app/service too long but...
I have had plenty of time to use it, it does work for me (I see many people complaining of not being able to log in) no errors for me either so we'll have to wait and see on that. But it does remote start well for me (2017 Dodge Challenger) only takes about 15-20 seconds when I try it. Not bad considering my remote starter fob won't reach my car from my desk since I park as far back in the lot as I can. And I won't drive unless my engine is at running temperatures.
The app is lacking features and really needs an update. I'm not sure yet if I'll renew when my free trial is over. I might just dish out a few hundred dollars to get an engine block heater installed. Either way I can currently justify a 3-star rating based solely on the fact that it works well for me. I will keep using it and update with more information later.
Not worth it
Our 2018 Grand Cherokee came with a one year subscription to SXM Guardian but the cost to renew the service is around $500. For that price it is not worth it at all. The app itself has limited usefulness. The only things you can do from the app are remotely honk, lock/unlock, start, and locate. Each feature takes like 1 minute to complete and you’re never really sure it worked. You decide if that’s worth $500. In the car, there are some other features like weather, movie theater locator, and something about say and go where you can send places to your car to get directions. If you are reading this review you probably already have a smart phone which only makes SXM Guardian a $500 redundancy. Not worth it. The only thing that might be useful is the locator. But there are plenty of aftermarket locator systems that are cheaper, faster, and have more features. I will not renew the subscription next year.
