Thinking of investing in an upgrade or two for your ride this year? If so, do yourself a favour and get a remote starter, as no other feature or function will make a bigger difference. Here we will look at some of the many different ways that you will benefit.
Control the climate
With a remote starter your ride can be as warm or cool as you want it to be, all you have to do is start your vehicle remotely a minute or two before you head out, set your ideal temperature, and it will be just right in time for your arrival. Warming your ride remotely will be a particularly big bonus during winter, as it will mean most of the ice and snow accumulated on your vehicle will have melted by the time you get there.
Protect the engine
Your vehicle’s engine consists of many moving parts, each of which needs to be properly lubricated in order to perform at their best, and allowing a minute or two for your ride to run before heading off ensures that even those hard to reach parts will be ready to go. These extra few minutes of lubrication are vital during winter, because cold temperatures cause motor oil to thicken, meaning that it takes a little longer for it to reach all those many components.
Find your ride
If you regularly visit busy or unfamiliar areas, or just don’t have the greatest memory, you will love your remote starter, because it makes finding your ride fast and easy, no matter where you’ve parked it. Not only will it record exactly where you’ve parked your vehicle, but some remote starters will even provide step-by-step instructions on the fastest way to get back there.
Not sure if you’ve locked your vehicle or not? Not a problem, as your remote starter can tell you, and if you have indeed forgotten to secure your ride you can do so remotely. In the unlikely event that your vehicle is stolen you can even use your remote starter to track its location, making it faster and easier for the authorities to recover it for you. Furthermore, using a remote starter to warm up your vehicle, as opposed to having your keys sitting in the ignition, is a much safer option.
Boost your vehicle’s value
If you ever decide to sell or trade in your vehicle one day, your remote starter will significantly boost its overall value, as these savvy systems have fast become one of the most popular vehicle features for modern drivers. Keep this in mind when choosing your remote starter, as you will likely recover any money you choose to invest in it.
