Where is spring?

3-30-18  Easter is right around the corner and I’m watching snow flurries out of my window.  I would prefer the warmth and sunshine that we had last week.  I guess there isn’t much I can do about the weather so I need to find ways to stay warm.  I recently upgraded my remote start system to our RFP2WG15SS.  The system has a 2-mile range and a great looking 4-button remote.  I’ve been very impressed with the unit and love the added range.  It helps me stay warm in these dog days of winter.  If summer ever gets here it will keep me cool, too!  Happy Easter and Passover to all!

Football Fans

2-1-18  Minnesota football fans were disappointed once again this year and the loss is magnified by all the festivities happening right now for Superbowl LII which is being held here in Minneapolis.  We are known as the frigid north and Mother Nature has confirmed that with another round of arctic temperatures and sub-zero windchills.  Visitors to our area will wonder how we are able to deal with this weather.  The reality is that we have lots of coping strategies and owning a remote car starter is one of them.  If you don’t have one yet, give us a call and we’ll give you all the details on how to get yours.  In the meantime, enjoy the game and stay warm!

Wow! It’s Cold Out There

12-29-17    Brrrrr!  This arctic weather is brutal.  Sure makes me glad I have a remote starter and the way our phones are ringing off the hook it seems as though everyone wants a remote starter right now.  Good thing we are here to help!  If you’re looking to stay warm, give us a call at 952-933-3575.

We sincerely hope you have a safe and Happy New Year!

Warm November but arctic blast coming!

11-30-17  Once again, the weather in Minnesota leaves us all guessing.  Our cold October led to a warm November.  December starts tomorrow and the weather report says we’re headed for the deep freeze.  We knew it was coming but it doesn’t mean we have to like it.  If you’re still considering a remote starter check out our new line up including the CompuStar Pro series with extended remote range of up to 2 miles.  Or, even better, get a Drone system operated on your smart phone and start your car from anywhere.  Stay warm wherever you are and Happy Holidays!

Happy Halloween 2017!

10-31-17  The ghosts and goblins are out in full force today.  Hopefully they have dressed warm because there is a definite chill in the air and the snowfall last week was a blatant reminder of what we have to look forward to during a typical Minnesota winter.  Fortunately, there are lots of ways to combat the cold and a remote car starter can certainly help.  We’ve got a great lineup of products debuting this fall and look forward to a busy holiday season.  Call us now to book your appointment and be ahead of the crowds.  Happy Halloween!

Welcome to Summer 2017!

6-2-17  It seems like it’s been a long time coming but summer has finally made an appearance.  The Memorial Weekend weather was nice but we needed to get to June to see some actual heat.  We are fielding calls this time of year for both air conditioning service and remote car starter installs.  Just as we don’t like getting in a cold car in the winter, we also don’t like getting in a hot car in the summer!  Give us a call if we can help with either issue.  In the meantime, HAPPY SUMMER!

New Volkswagen & Audi Remote Start Applications

3-22-17  Good news for owners of German vehicles!  We now offer the industry’s first complete solution designed to enable remote start directly from your factory key fob using the 3x Lock feature on select Volkswagen and Audi models from 2006 and up.  This is done through a plug and play t-harness for seamless, no cut installation.  Just select your favorite remote pack and we’ll do the rest!  These systems no longer require the loss of a key in the installation process.  Please contact us to see if you vehicle is compatible!

Happy spring!  

Cold enough for you?

1-13-17  Our beautiful fall turned into a very cold winter.  We’ve certainly experienced below zero temperatures and wind chills before but my question is:  How did we survive before remote car starters?  I know my winter blues would be much worse without my remote starter.  Scraping windows and pushing snow are not my idea of fun.

We continue to add new vehicles to our remote start lineup on a weekly basis.  The 2017 model year is in full swing and technology has improved to allow us to install remote starters in more and more BMW’s and Mercedes Benz models.  Check with us if we didn’t have an application for your vehicle in the past.  We may have one now.

Most of all:  Stay warm and carry on!

Happy New Year!

Is it really winter?

11-10-16  It’s been quite a year!  The Cubs won the World Series and the Twin Cities metro area hasn’t had a hard frost as of November 10th.  Crazy!  While the warm weather has been nice, I can’t help but wonder if we will pay for it in a few months?  There’s no question that the beginning of remote start season has been delayed but living in Minnesota we know the season will eventually come.  Needless to say, it’s best to be prepared.  Call us now if you want to be ahead of the weather!

In the meantime, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a Happy Holiday season!

2015 and 2016 Nissan Rogue

4-27-16  Good news!  We now have a solution for installing remote starters in the 2015 and 2016 Nissan Rogues.

Previous installations for this vehicle required the customer to supply an extra key/key fob for the vehicle that had to be used in the installation and could not be returned to the customer.  That is no longer necessary.  Standard installation will now integrate into the vehicle without using a losing a key or key fob.

Please  contact us if you’ve been eagerly awaiting this improvement and we will get you taken care of.

Technology truly changes on a daily basis.
