I have found out this 516L module does more than what i have anticipated. It also does error messages for example.. it says "check doors", "check trunk", and or "check hood" if it finds errors with these when arming the car alarm. Also instead of getting the chirps, after a zone has been violated, and after the alarm is silenced; when finally disarming the alarm it says what zones have been triggered. How cool is that :D

Some of the messages this module emits are as follows: "intruder alert, door access", "intruder alert hood or trunk access", Door Violation", "Hood or Trunk Violation" , "armed", and "disarmed" as far as the security messages go.

When you use the keyfob for remote start or Valet mode, the messages are as follows: "valet now starting engine stand clear", "caution valet operating vehicle", "valet engine shutdown", and "engine control valet". Other than that u have 9 slots for your own messages that you would want to here when a certain zone is triggered. Oh and I would use the PA but i have one that i use with my CB hmm maybe i should test it to see which one is louder so i could eliminate one of the 3 speakers that are under my hood.

I havent heard many talking alarms nowadays, its been a good while since the last time i heard one. I always wanted one and for the price that Sonic Electronix has it for, it was right on time. Good price now, if I could just talk to my car. Oh yes, i know the technology exist just need to find the lil VRM's (voice recognition modules). Get the 516L if u want to be different, or dont because i like being the only one in my area with it as far as i know. Like anything i own i kind of played with the functions a lil but thats how ya learn.

I would recommend this product although it is really not a critical item, just cool. :)

I was able to hook the mike input up to my iphone and record a sample from an old Star Trek episode so now if anybody gets too close to the car the alarm beeps and then the 516L says that the self destruct sequence is initiated. :)

I would like to be able to use the alarm remote as a trigger so that it can call up a prerecorded message at the press of a button, but I am not sure if that can be done.
