remote starters

i would like to get one for my '08 F450.

features i would like is confirmation of the start, and a delayed start as my truck is diesel.

need recommendations of brands/models of remote starters, and east GTA shops to do the install.

thanks inadvance,

Kev

i had a compustar years ago, it had the 2 way fm signal thing, worked from really long range and had a little screen on the remote showing if it started successfully and also alarm status (like a door being opened.) not a single complaint, alarm on remote went off once with my car in an underground parking lot while i was up 4 floors!

I know this is an old thread, but where can I find the Compustar Remote Start in the Hamilton/Burlington area?

Compustar was sold to a new company and its not like the old stuff anymore its really put its quality down.

Viper or anything made by DEI would be your best idea.
