Sort of un/related question, but I'm just curious what the range is on the remote start? ie: do you have to be within ~50', ~500', or do you have to be almost on top of the truck for it to work?! I've ordered it with my truck.
I've never tested the max range on my wife's Terrain (factory GM remote start), but I don't think it's all that great.
I had an aftermarket remote start in my old Avalanche, with 2-way FM feedback, and it was INCREDIBLE ... it would start the truck from probably ~1/4 mile away! (maybe not that far, but pretty damn close!) ........AND the remote would "beep" to say the truck started. I wish the factory systems were that good.
Now using the Remote-link app with a smart phone, will that start the truck from wherever you are with your phone?? THAT will be pretty sweet, if I can start it from a greater distance away (ie: at my work, which takes quite a few minutes to get from my work location to the parking lot).
Just curious to hear from those of you who have it .
