im looking at 2 models the compustar and autopage. both are similiar in features and price! they both have a setting for really cold nights where it starts your rig every 3 hrs to keep it warm. sounds like a good idea. and both have the turbo feature where it runs the truck for a cpl min after shut down to cool it.

I used to have the autopage and is sweet for the price! I wish I would have yanked it out when I sold the truck but they are a major pia to install/remove. I now have the viper on my truck and it is just as nice. The autopage was my fav but make sure to keep your manual handy because it can be fun to remember all the mode entries. The 2 way pager is cool on it too!
