I have the python remote start installed on my truck. I didn't install it, I had a local stereo shop install it. I got the one that you can start the truck from your phone, it is cool as hell when it is working. With the phone it is hit or miss if it is gonna work. I got it last Christmas and since then have carried the extra clicker in my pocket more than not just to make sure I could get into the truck. I am going to have the Bluetooth add-on installed in the next couple of months. That should help with it being more reliable.
From what I understand is that the system runs off of AT&T and if they don't have good service the phone can't communicate with the truck. The first week that I had the system my wife and I were locked out of the truck for 20 min, she was pissed! I couldn't get the kill switch to work and finally it just unlocked with the phone.
If I was going to do it over again I would still get it but I would have done the Bluetooth add-on right from the get go. Hope this helps.
