Remote Start from iPhone?
 
There is a commercial out (i think it's a buick) where a dad starts his car for his daughter while he is at work... checks tire pressure etc via his iPhone. i'm assuming that works through uconnect but i'm not 100% sure. Can this be done on the Jeep or will it be available in the future?

I doubt it, that is available through OnStar I believe for GM only.

Looks pretty cool. $399 isn't bad. Was reading on their website and it doesnt say what you need activated on the Jeep to make it work. Am good with paying the $399 but really dont want to have a recurring bill if possible.

OnStar will be selling kits at bestbuy. you can add onstar to any vehicle soon, but it replaces your current rear view

you mean it replaces your current rear view mirror? i just read some reviews and it appears the viper one seems to have some problems... ie- works 10% of the time, will not work over Verizon network (which i have the verizon iphone). i'll wait a while on this one...
