    I've not heard of this issue, but I don't start the truck after remote starting without pressing the brake pedal. If you ate speaking of just remote starting it then NO I've not had any such issue.

    It's really worth it for me. With pre-heat or pre-cooling the interior (of course preset required) when out of range. I can also make sure if I locked the door when left at the airport or trailhead. You can also get it for three years for $99 that's $33/year.

    It's the lowest on the planet for any 4G/LTE device. The breakdown is about $3 a month. Try to find something for equal or less. Anything else you look at, OEM or not, will start around $100 a year and some at that price only unlock "Basic features" making more function available the higher you pay. This is full featured, everything, one flat rate for access to your vehicle at anytime, anywhere in the world.

    You should also check with your insurance company if they give discounts for having a GPS tracking device. Some are heard to give up to $10-$20/month off which not only would pay for the device in a year, but would also cover the annual fee in about 2.5 months or so (at $15), and then some saving you money on your bill. We had a customer tell us they were discounted $85 up front for the year recently.

    Or $2.75 a month if you want to look at it that way. That's not even one Starbucks drink. I lose more change between my car seats and couch than that. Free up $2.75 - $3.00 a month in one's budget and in hindsight it isn't that bad. A lot better than anything else in it's class.

    We responded to your email but we'll post it here publicly for all to see:

    If you do key take over quick enough, the pop up on the display (from what we’ve heard from other customers) never pops up. Only the small TPMS light on the cluster ( ! ) will blink UNTIL you do the key override (key into ignition two clicks to ON position, then tap the brake pedal) and goes away after. If you tap the brake pedal promptly after the key into the ignition to ON position, then again, from what we hear, the pop up display on the infotainment screen won’t appear. The TPMS is still fully functional and no TPMS light stays on. If you have a remote start and start your car by hand, the TPMS light never shows whatsoever as it doesn’t now.

    You DON’T HAVE to cut the TPMS wire BUT if you don’t, this is the tradeoff:

    Once remote started, your fob presses post start will not register, meaning you will not be able to remote stop it. So then how does the engine stop, you may wonder - three ways, you will need to:

    A) Let it run the countdown timer the full course of the 15 minutes, or

    B) Stick the key into the key hole to manually unlock the vehicle and tap the brake pedal to stop it, or

    C) Stick the key into the key hole to manually unlock the vehicle and do key take over, where you get in, shut the door, put the key into the ignitions ON position (2-clicks) and tap the brake pedal once and you can drive off as if the key started the vehicle.

    So what you will NOT be able to do if you don’t make the one wire snip is be able to press lock 3 times after remote starting it in order to remote stop it, nor will you be able to hit the unlock button on the fob after remote starting to get into the vehicle without sticking the key into the keyhole. This scenario ONLY applies to after remote starting, and NOT at any other time. If not remote starting, the fob works as it does now without the remote start. So, we are not rendering anything useless; it’s more of the method of doing the same thing is a little less convenient but that doesn’t bother some more than the wire snip does. So some folks actually just accept this trade-off to avoid the wire snip. All kits out there require this snip and our Toyota Dealership accounts actually do this every day no questions asked. So, it’s more of something that is up to you. It all still works fine regardless; snip or no snip – just one has added convenience over the other.

    You won't regret it. You'll never look back and you'll never be able to be without it again...you'll feel naked without it after your first use! That comfort of a nice toasty cabin in the winter or cool one in the summer and peace of mind that you NO LONGER have to wonder if you locked the vehicle and then walk back from wherever to check, or get out from the comfort of your warm bed to double check is worth every penny of it. You're going to have your phone on you a lot more than your fob (i.e. pockets, nightstand next to bed, etc). Not to mention the GPS, temperature and battery voltage features just add that much more convenience. We have no doubt that you're going to love it!

    The cell connection module is 100% worth it. I park too far away to start with the fob. I regularly use it to make sure my truck is locked.

    I just installed remote start on my taco. The remotes play a sound when disengaging before the takeover that sounds like the beginning notes of "What's love got to do with it" by Tina turner.

    I have been going through the instructions before the module gets to me. Where do you recommend the module be mounted in a 2020 TRD? I see the instructions suggest 3 inches from anything metal.

    Hello All, I just installed the N2-EA-TOY6-K remote starter with the Smart Phone Control Module: N2-MYC4G-U in my 2018 Tacoma Limited. Functionality works as advertised with the key fob, but I can't get the app to function (CL6). I am pretty sure I set up the module correctly (it displayed all the correct lights during the setup). However, after setting up my vehicle in the app, I am unable to start, stop, lock or unlock the vehicle. When I start the vehicle from the key fob, I see in the app that the timer starts and when I stop the vehicle from the key fob, the timer stops. I am not sure what the issue is.

    You may want to try unplugging the module and go through the programming process again.

    @N2DesignsInc does have great customer service though.

    Thanks. I tried this and still no luck...and in fact, I now don't have the ability to start/stop the vehicle via the fob.

    Try to return it back to stock and restart the truck. Then, reinstall the module from scratch. Hope you get a hold of Jimmy...

    Again, thanks for the quick replies and suggestions.

    N2Designs support has reached out. I am going to try a process they suggested in the morning when it isn’t so cold haha
