One thing you can do which might help prevent this in the future, is to make up a little "battery backup".
Wire a 9 volt battery clip, a diode to isolate the 9 volt battery, to a 12 volt cigarette lighter plug. When you disconnect the vehicle battery, the diode will switch on and the 9 volt battery and backfeed through the vehicle's fuse box. It will provide enough voltage to keep the memory in your remote start alive while you change the starter battery.
I'm pretty sure you can buy something like this already made if you don't feel like doing it yourself. Probably would only cost a few dollars.
If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
