I am looking into getting a remote start for my truck. I am at a cross road on which one to get. Does anyone know which one would work better? I am looking at the Compustar Pro P2W9000FMR and the AviStart 4400 2-Way Security / Remote Start System. Any and all help would be appriciated. Thank you.

I have never heard of those two mfg's

Where are you shopping at? It would be a good idea to get a name brand alarm. I have a DEI (Viper) that has a 1 mile radius. It is by far the best alarm/remote start out there IMO.

You need to go to a shop. Buying some no name product off...

of the internet is a very bad idea. TRUST ME!! Go talk to someone face to face at a reputable alarm/stereo shop in your area. It will be the best decision. I made the mistake you are about to make once before. NEVER AGAIN!! Oh and by the way DEI stand for Directed Electroncic Inc. They are one of the largest alarm companies in the United States. They are a very reputable company. Just trying to help ya out, but buy whatever you want....nothing but problems on down the road!

Hey Rebel, you are in Washington, right? I've been looking at getting one of those too ... My older brother installs all the electronics in cop cars and state vehicles all over the US. I can get one installed as a g-job by one of the guys and they only use the best.

Let me email him tomorrow and ask which one he suggests (as long as he's back from Hong Kong).

BTW, you have an automatic, right?

I installed the Python 990. It also has Security, Great for the thefts on a rise!! Has a window to monitor. Lets you know if alarm was set off or when door is opened. You can start yer rig up to 1 mile away.
