I have a Clifford Matrix 3.5 w/ remote start and it works great. It has a visual screen that tells you when the car has started, and it beeps everytime your car is hit. Mine was set to lock the doors automatically after 20 seconds. It is a great security system, and the autostart is very cool!!!

Smart man right there! (Viper 791XV is the same as the Clifford 3.5) :D

Elbato you need to add the GPS tracking unit to that thing.

As far as i read previous posts, I may have to choose 2-way remote that must have long distance range.
It seems that I don't need the alarm but the remote start.

Basically I don't want to carry two remotes, yet OEM I-remote just don't have range that is long enough.....(I have '04 Tech Pkg)

I want to use the remote starter to work when i'm at home.
when I'm not home just bring the I-key only since I don't like the bulky remotes in my pocket.

Is there way to make me to use 2 different remote at the same time as i discribed?

1) use the 2-way remote to warm up the FX at home.
2) use the OEM Remote when i'm not home.

If you have any idea about this please let me know.
as well as the good product (not so expensive yet still reliable one)

Well you could, but they would be 2 seperate systems. There are basically 2 types of systems: one that has its own remotes/receiver, and one designed to work off of the factory remote, by tapping into the unlock wires coming from the OEM keyless mod. To do what you want, you'd have to...

wait.. Brainstorm!

You could do this with one module. Get yourself a 2-way remote start setup (You need something cheaper but good: Prestige APS55TWT. I install a bunch of these). Install as usual, but you could add a PAC TR-7 timer module to the wire on the 2way which will trigger the remote start. You would set the TR-7 so that it would, for example, need to see 4 pulses on your FX's unlock wire within 5 seconds via the OEM remote which will provide the trigger to the 2way systems auxiliary input. Then you have both! Use your 2 way at home, and when away from home, just use your OEM remote via the lock 4x or whatever is programmed.

I am a genius! :D

Wow you have no idea how much I am going to use that. Sorry if I lost anybody with that. If you have this done your installer should be able to figure this out going by what i wrote above (and if they cant, then they probably shouldnt be working on your FX!)

The GPS unit runs anywhere from $600 and up depending on local prices. Install charge should be minimal, since it basically plugs into the ESP2 port on your 3.5. There are a couple of extra wires, and the GPS/cellular antenna (all in one) which goes on the inner windshield or under the top of the dash. It'd probably take an hour or so to put in your FX. Then you have to buy a service plan thru the tracking company, i think starting at $50 per year. I love mine, as the wife sometimes leaves the I-keys in the FX and it locks automatically. Just go online, or call and it unlocks the doors and disarms the alarm. Can also remote start via phone or web. Can also see where the Pumpkin is 24/7 on my computer or via phone. Also if I arm it, and the FX moves 100 feet, It calls (can email and maybe text too) up to 3 numbers and lets me know. Pretty cool stuff.
