Remote Start / Smartphone Remote Control

Let’s start with a feature that you can use before you even get in the car. For those who live in either really hot or perennially snow-heavy regions, remote start is a godsend. The ability to have the car already cool or warm is a crucial element to the daily commute.

In the last several years automakers have expanded this concept, providing remote-control apps for your smartphone. These apps let you start and shut off the vehicles, lock or unlock the doors, and even operate the horn and headlights all from your phone. Some apps even provide vehicle diagnostics.
