Viper Smart Start with GPS, you can monitor your vehicle from anywhere you have cell service and can also see exactly where the vehicle is at all times.

CompuStar CS61021as here.
Works great. Range is not quite what's advertised but distance to communicate is far!!
Only downfall, for me personally, is the fact that when batteries are killed on the eX I cant set the delay time for it to start. (basically waiting for glowplugs to finish cycling with the temperature outside) It will engage the starter quicker than I would personally like in really cold temps (we see -30C jan/feb here).
Other than that it's been rock solid and planning to upgrade to the Drone in the future when fee's drop a little.
