I love the system however I am disapointed that you can not get install instructions for the unit unless you are an authorized dealer. I have always installed my own vehicle electronics on my own mainly because I don't trust an 18 year old kid with maybe a high school education to do it when I know that I will do it right and take no shortcuts. Would be a 5 if directed electronics would give you access to this information. Why would I want to pay between $500.00 and $900.00 to have this installed when i am perfectly capable of doing it myself.

I have used this Alarm/RS system a lot. and i have seen all the flaws in it. like how the interior temperature thing is off by sometimes up to 20 degrees (the temp sensor was inside the main unit), not that good when you hook up the rear defrost, which default is set to turn on automatically at 55 degrees or below. The range is also not close to a mile. I've had friends say it may be a half mile if your lucky and its a clear day out. I bought a scytek alarm/rs with all the same features and then some above and beyond this unit and i'm happy with my purchase which cost's over $100 less than this. also the side buttons are kind of hard to press. most times it takes both hands to use the remote 2 way remote. its not user friendly. I have used the model above this one that had a fancy screen and a wheel to control the remote, it was a lot nicer, but i'd never spend the money for it. I keep seeing problems with the models below this like the 5301 and the 5701 losing the remote programming. viper has released new versions of all these i believe that had some problems fixed. hope you don't get the old version if your buying one of these. and also i hate the shock sensor being on board. it's always really sensitive in one area near where it's located, and never sensitive on the opposite corner of the car so it's easy to break in without setting the shock sensor off, unless you have it set REALLY sensitive then you get the false alarms!
