Remote Starters are Back, But This Time It’s an App.

Technology in the automobile industry has been thriving, from GPS to in car Wi-Fi.  Lately, many new cars come with the option of a remote starter app.  Remote starter keys have been around for a long time, and has evolved into an app that can be downloaded on to smartphones and even some smartwatches.  There are many perks to having yet another command at the touch of your smart phone.

One advantage over having an app rather than a remote starter is that it is said to be able to reach the car from a further difference.  There are a number of convenient features that are found between the different apps that make it so you don’t even need your car key… or half of your dashboard for that matter!  Many of them can perform the standard locking, unlocking and car starting, but some of them do so much more.

Some of the features help with locating your car, such as honking your horn and flashing your lights, and even a vehicle finder.  Of course, many electric cars need special attention too, and there are apps for that!  The Nissan Leaf app shows the battery life and estimated driving range.  One can even schedule charging times.

Having these features are not just for easy remote access, but are very relevant for safety notifications as well.  Having the ability to find your car, especially at night or in a parking garage is dangerous, and many of these new features can assist someone find their car.  Second, if you are able to see your mileage or tire pressure before entering your car, it can be beneficial, especially if there is bad weather or you are in a dangerous area.
