|Aychdot||I understand your concern, but it does work great when your remote can't reach the car.|

|zehkaiser||While that is a pretty cool looking system, I'm not sure I want anyone having internet access to my car. Also, paying a monthly fee doesn't appeal to me.|

I added a Drone Mobile 3400 to mine for Christmas. Starts, Stops, Locks, Unlocks, and pops trunk from your Smartphone. Had to re-flash the old idatalink module to get it to work though. If you get the premium plan you can get GPS tracking and other things. WELL RECOMMENDED!

Well, I called the support line and they got me straightened out. Here's what you should know:
Flash by Vehicle.
Device type is RF Kit and Converter.
Installation Mode is Compustar RF Kit and the only device listed (DT-100 or something like that).
Firmware is RS-FM4.
Download the install guide provided on the final screen and use that for the wiring diagram and module programming routine.

|zehkaiser||Merry Christmas, everyone. I went out last night and installed the module, but I can't get it programmed correctly. What options do I select on the website? I installed the firmware mentioned in this thread, but it won't start the car.|

They make aftermarket starters for manuals, but you have to have the neutral safety switch and hand brake sensor wired up, as well as going through a complex procedure on shut down to make sure it's safe to remote start or they won't work, that is unless you go down the path of bypassing the safety features and creating further headaches down the line.

|TehMark||Well I have mine installed but am having the same problem with it not turning off when i hold it again. Must be an option to configure.|

I'm gonna miss the remote starter I have on my current car (that's for sale, awaiting the delivery of my Focus!) It's aftermarket, had it for years. Used it in hot or cold weather. In fact that's almost exclusively the only way I'd start my car. Even on a nice day I'd start it while walking up to it. Gives it a couple seconds extra to idle and get the oil flowing.
I'm a little concerned about potential warranty issues with aftermarket remote start, though. And the Ford remote start won't work with the manual transmission!
