QX70 09+ Which remote starter to choose?

    Looking to get a remote starter on my 2017 QX70 for those lovely Canadian winters. Will be installed by dealer so installation complexity is not a factor.

    Must have features:
    1. 2-way system so i know if it started
    2. 1+ mile range
    3. Either interior temperature sensor or ability to disable auto shutoff (takes a while to warm up the car in the middle of winter)

    Question - can a fancy led starter remote fully replace the factory smart key? Not looking forward to having to carry 2 remotes.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance.

    I love my Fortin Remote starter but it does not meet the criteria set forth in your post.
    QX70 09+ - How to Install Fortin Remote Start

    As far as what you are looking for, I would suggest something from DEi Electronics. I used to run Viper/Python 2-way systems in my previous vehicles and loved them as well.

    Go here:

    Viper Canada

    You can build your own system on there or look around at what they have...

    And I would recommend getting a SMARTSTART with GPS system. I wouldn't recommend having your dealer install it. They're morons. Get one of the Viper guys to do it for you. I have a VIPER system in my FX and I don't need an additional FOB or anything to carry around... Although the guy that did mine knows FX's like the back of his hand (johnmax)...

    I have the Fortin system and it can do all of the above requirements. I do have the app which works in southern Ontario and Quebec. So if the OP is located in that area, he's good to go.
