What are some advantages of a remote car starter?

I was thinking about getting a remote car starter to cool down my car because I live in Florida, but I'm on the fence. Besides being able to start your car from a distance, are there other advantages to a remote car starter?

Great question! A remote car starter is certainly convenient when you want to cool your vehicle in the summer in Florida, but it has tons of other benefits as well, including:
  • Avoiding the dreaded hot steering wheel
  • Synchronizing with your smartphone for a more high-tech approach to starting your car
  • Adding a GPS tracker to it for your protection and to locate your car in a parking garage
  • Melting snow or warming the car if you decide to venture north for the winter
With all of the add-ons and other options available, using a remote car starter will only set you back about $100 to $200, but it’s well worth the price.
In addition to upgrading with a remote car starter, you may want to consider comprehensive coverage, since it’ll protect you from theft.
