|there must be a way, so many cars today have a key with a chip in it that is required to start the car as part of the anti-theft and the car start companies have bypasses for those, i would think that it is just a matter of time before some company does the same for cars like ours. after all, the key-less system has been around for a while.|
I talked to a dealer here who did the Compustar setup for the Caravan. I asked about the Sonata and the normal non smart key can be done like any other car out there now. Smart Key and push button start can be done too but they don't have the interfaces and such available yet, he said to check back in the summer. But they have done Lexus with push button with no issues so it can be done, just a matter of the interfaces becoming available since it's such a new car.
The Hyundai dealer said one from Hyundai should be available later this year. The downside is like all factory systems the range isn't as great as the aftermarket, about 200 feet compared to 3000 - 5000 feet for aftermarket units. I'm going to go with Compustar again as it was loaded with features too and would be cheaper than the factory Hyundai unit. But for everyone else, whether you go aftermarket or factory remote start will be possible shortly.
|As for right now you can not install a remote start without loosing one of the expensive key fobs. Plus they have to leave the fob in the car somewhere which makes the car able to be stolen at all times.|
