Now there is a new way to remotely start your vehicle; from your cell phone.

Auto Systems in Fargo is now installing remote starters that come with a smart phone app. Instead of having to be close to your car, you can start or unlock the doors from any where in the world.

Besides getting the car warmed up, there are other benefits to the system as well.

“I think the safety of not having the keys in the car running so your vehicle not getting stolen is a nice thing for any remote start, but with a smart start it's also nice that you don't have to have your keys with you.”
