Neat Product, Would Highly Recommend

July 10, 2013

I have the Arctic Start AR600S installed in my Ford F150 and have really enjoyed its capabilities and unique features. It's always nice to warm up the truck in the cold dead of winter and if I should get sidetracked, it will automatically shut the engine off in 15 minutes. The other nice feature is that even though the truck is running during warm up, no one can drive away in it until it has the factory key inserted and turned to the "on" position. A touch of the brake (without factory key inserted) and the engine powers off. Very Cool item !

Arctic start best value available.

May 29, 2013

This is by far the best price and best service I have found online. As an expert remote start installer and technical support agent, this piece does everything well. Range is acceptable 5-700 feet max. Installation is for a novice installer. Brain is well laid out and options for most vehicles on the road. Professional installation is recommended always with these types of products.

Arctic Start unit is bullet proof

December 12, 2012

Even though the unit doesnt work full 2 way data it is about the most rock solid unit i have used in the past few years. Remotes are decent, price is really good, programming was simple, and range is decent. For a basic remote start/keyless unit, its hard to beat this one for the price. First and foremost make sure you get professional installation. I have been doing these since the late 80's and this unit is great. However it is only as good as the installation. Use Idatalink products for vehicle integration, you will not be displeased with this unit. I am actually using them for my friends and family. And they are performing flawlessly.
