“I am only going to start my vehicle from home.” This is one of the most common things we hear when talking to a client about remote car starters. From our experience, this often comes from someone who has not owned a remote start. Here at Extreme Audio we pride ourselves on selling the best quality, highest performing products on the market and remote car starter range plays an important part. Let’s explore why remote car starter range is so important.
Remote Car Starters Are More Than Just For At Home
We all agree that you will want to start your vehicle from home. But, let’s say you leave for work and your car sits for four hours until you leave for lunch. You are not lucky enough to part close to your office and your “short-range” remote starter does not reach. You go out to your vehicle to find it is ice-cold and you reflect back to how good it felt when you got into it this morning.
Remote Car Starter Range: Better To Have Too Much Than Too Little
You have quickly moved from a “start it at the house person” to a ” want my car warm wherever it is parked person.” You see, you spent hard-earned money to have your vehicle warm and toasty, so why would you want to go out to a cold car after lunch? How about when leaving work, when you are finishing up at the store, church, or a social club? Time and time again, people will call us after the installation asking if they can increase their range, but never does someone call us and say we sold them too much range!
Published Numbers Are Perfect World, Not Real Life
Another important thing to consider is the misleading numbers given by remote start manufacturers. Compustar is our feature brand, and they offer the longest range systems on the market. However, when you are inside of a commercial building you can lose 75-80% of the stated range. So a 3000 foot system can quickly become 600-900 feet when considering the obstruction that the building presents. And if you happen to work in a school, hospital, or major office building, the complex structures and electrical interference in these buildings can all but kill range. If you fit this bill, you should consider our longest range system or our DroneMobile SmartPhone based system which has an unlimited range.

When we do a consultation with one of our clients we ask them to think about all the places their vehicle will be parked over the course of an average week. We then ask them if they would like their vehicle to be nice and warm in those circumstances. That answers our question about which system will be the best fit for them. We invite you to stop in with your vehicle for a free consultation. We will help you choose a system with the perfect amount of remote car starter range.
