When you walk into many stores that sell remote car starters, you will probably see the terms «2-way» or «1-way». What does that mean, what’s the difference between the two, and which one is better to choose? Let’s break it down.
First, let’s clarify what a 1-way remote starter is. A one-way remote starter allows you to lock and unlock your car with the added convenience of a remote start. However, the disadvantage of a one-way remote starter is that you need to be near the car to visually or audibly realize that the required action has been performed. If you use a one-way remote starter to start the car while out of sight, you will not be able to accurately determine if the car has turned on.
This is a more modern version of a starter. Unlike one-way remotes, two-way remotes confirm the successful transmission of commands to the vehicle directly to the Compustar console visually and audibly. With two-way remote starts, you receive instant confirmation of the engine start.
In addition, Compustar’s two-way remote starters operate over a longer range than factory and one-way remote starters. This is very useful if the parking lot is far from home or work. Because of this, you will be able to warm up the car in the time it takes you to get there, thus saving you time.
Another nice thing about many Compustar remote starter models is that you get access to a free 30-day trial of the DroneMobile app. With DroneMobile, you get unlimited remote start, security and tracking features right from your smartphone.
