    I just got my smart start installed, and I have to say, it's pretty dang impressive. I now have full control over my car through my iphone. You can set it to start at scheduled times, even schedule it to start when the temp drops below or above any given temperature :eek:

    The GPS functionality is equally cool. Knowing exactly where my car is at all times. Parking spot assistance for those that lose their car in the parking garage.

    I think the biggest win for it though, is no more key fobs!!! I just have my truck, car, and house keys on my keyring now. It's amazing.

    Curious though, if anyone else has these and has paired any auxiliary buttons to it? It states that I have two, and I'm curious if I wired in heated mirrors from a 4runner if they'd be able to be activated by the phone as well?

    I just got mine for Christmas, but have yet to have it installed.

    I am quite excited about it, but one thing to keep in mind is that all those handy little functions are not use-able if your phone is in a "dead zone", ie. no cellular signal.

    Does it also send you push notifications to your phone if your truck is being broken into or when you get a door ding?

    Yep, my truck is rarely in a dead zone, and when I go out into the boonies, I've always got the key.

    How long have you had it installed?
    Do the push notifications work?

    Yeah they do, although no one has tried to break in yet, we tested it. I've had it about a week. Switched phones yesterday and logged in with my new one with no issues at all.

    just got the auto mate 5304 today with smart start...

    bad ass system... i can start/arm/dis arm my truck in alaska and get updates on it as well, still messing with all the bells and whistles. viper sends me an email and ext message for anything thats triggered and a confirmation if the command went through or failed. debating to not carry a key fob at all and just do everything with the phone since i have that with me at all times... the 2 key fob they give you is a LCD 2 way key fob, and a non lcd 1 way, and of course, the smart start app is free (i have it for the iPhone)

    auto mate is the same company as Viper, Python, Clifford, Autostart Etc...

    auto mate 5304 is the equivalent of the Viper 5704 which was the replacement for the 5901.

    120.00 for the smart start subscription for 3 years (it was the best/most money saved plan)
