I've read that the 2013/14 GC's will have the cellular/smart phone option built in to the remote start system. I'm hoping it's backward compatible for the '12's as I've found NO way to customize the OEM system for it other than installing a Viper/Python kit. Which I had in my 4Runner and LOVED.

The Chevy OEM system was backwards compatible for only one year prior I believe.

I had an 09 Chevy and wasn't able to install the 2010/2011 viper type OnStar system because the computer wasn't backwards compatible to allow it.
