This unit comes with trunk release capability and remote control integration for OEM alarm or add-on trunk release systems. Pop your trunk using your remote transmitter for convenience and ease of use. Carrying a handful of groceries? Arms tied up with luggage? Pop the trunk without using your key so it’s open and waiting for you when you arrive.

Installation is challenging, but the system works well. I like the system because it has an abundance of features and comes at a great price point. I can only estimate "durability" as it took me six months to finally get it installed.

I am a professional installer and I have istalled several of these units, even have one in my truck. This is a great system with one exception. The LCD remote is a little problematic. My remote has problems with resetting itself randomly, which isn't a big deal because it still works afterward. The remote start works excellent and the built in turbo timer is an outstanding feature. I would recommend it and have many times. I just wish Crimestopper would make the remote a little better.
