Thanks steelious! I needed a good laugh.. bum warmers!We pay more because it's a completely different economy with different import rules/levies/etc. Not to mention that most (not all, but most) provinces have much higher tax rates that anywhere in the US.
And my guess is that you'd be fighting an uphill battle to get Blue link on a Canadian car if you moved to the US. It would not be free either.
On top of the cost of adding it, and those with it can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that there's a monthly fee for it too.
OR...you can just go let your car warm up for 30 seconds and start driving it. Throw on the bum-warmers and your heater will be warm in no time at all If it's extreme cold that you're worried about, then I would focus on an engine block heater, not a remote starter.
Consider getting a Viper Alarm with remote start package. You can get a databus module with the kit and use the Viper app on your phone to remote start/lock/unlock your car. Viper dealers are in your area. Check with them regarding cost and coverage. I hope that helps.Can i get or put a remote starter on a hybrid 2013 sonata tech limited? curious? or dont need it ?? just thinking winter purposes
Don't forget if you leave the heated seat switch on when you turn off the car, it/they will come too when you remote start.
I got a remote starter installed on my HSH LTD last month. Compustar. I'm in Canada. Works fine to me.Anyone in Canada have a remote starter or the Hyundai warmup system installed on their Sonata Hybrid? I have a 2014 Sonata hybrid limited and from my research and calling a couple places I am told a remote starter can be installed.
What about the warmup system, that sounds interesting.
Wow! So you only have 1 fob? I have to carry around 2. I asked the dealer about integrating a car starter for my 2014 HSH Limited and they said there was no way to get around not carrying 2 fobs.I had a "factory" installed remote starter put on my car, works with the regular key fob.
I hate having 2 fobs it's new for 2015 models but was special ordered for my 2014 with the dealer.
I also know you can get aftermarket 1's that work with the factory key fob. My friend's Lexus push start just got it done on his 2015 model.
