When it comes to remote starter range, the MyCar remote system from Perzan Auto Radio in Upper Darby lets you control your vehicle from anywhere that you and your vehicle are within range of a cell phone tower. Gone are the days of holding your remote to your chin or pressing the start button repeatedly to begin the process of warming your vehicle. Telematics solutions provide quick and reliable control from anywhere.
How Does the MyCar Remote Starter Control System Work?
In a conventional remote car starter, our team of expert technicians will mount a radio frequency communication antenna at the top of your windshield and provide you with a set of remote controls. The remotes and the car starter communicate using radio signals in the same way a walkie-talkie lets you talk to friend or co-worker. The drawback of radio frequency communication is that interference can reduce the effective range of your remotes.
The MyCar system uses a data connection to interface with any of the remote car starter systems we sell and includes a cellular modem that talks to the MyCar server. When you press a button on the MyCar app on your iPhone or Android-based smartphone, an authenticated message is sent to the server, then immediately forwarded to your vehicle using cell phone towers. The system is safe, convenient and impressively fast.
Vehicle Locating Functions
Have you ever wondered where your kids go when they borrow your car, or do you need to keep track of a fleet of company vehicles? The MyCar system includes GPS locating features that make it easy to find out exactly where your car or truck is located. Just press the Locate Vehicle button on the app and in a few seconds, the exact location of your vehicle will be shown in Google or Apple maps.
Additional Convenience Features
Not only can you start your car with the MyCar telematics system, but you have full control over locking and unlocking your vehicle. If we have integrated a security system into your remote starter, the system will arm and disarm with the locking and unlocking commands to keep your vehicle safe. You can request battery voltage information from your vehicle to ensure it will be ready to go when you are.
If you have a remote car starter that includes a vehicle temperature sensor, you can check to see how hot or cold the interior of your vehicle is on the app to decide how much time the car will need to become comfortable inside. The system also includes a total of four auxiliary output channels that we can assign to trunk release, power liftgate and motorized sliding door functions.
Where most telematics systems take as much as 10 to 15 seconds to relay a command from the app on your phone to the server and then to your vehicle, the MyCar system works in less than 5 seconds. Often commands are relayed in only a second or two.
The Best Value in Telematics
Unlike other systems, MyCar doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to use each year. You have your choice of the $39 Premium package, which includes one year of service, or you can pick the Ultimate Package and get three years of convenience for $99. That’s less than half the price of competing products.
If you think that price is fair, just wait; we have even better news for you! The first year of service is free when you purchase the system!
