2010 JKU Remote start?

Does anyone have any suggestions on getting a remote start added to there jeep? I saw in crutchfield I could get a system that was remote start only for $199 then the addon of $199 to use iPhone to start it. Sure bestbuy would charge $100 to install.

The dealer told me those after market installs are troublesome because they don't get hooked up correctly. And they would charge $440 ish.

Any ideas on which is better dealer or aftermarket? Thanks!

Find a mom and pop that gets good reviews--all remote starts have lifetime warranties, and most mom and pops guarantee their labor for life. I had a Compustar 2-way installed in my last three vehicles for under $400 here in NH and loved them all.

The dealer is trying to drum up business for the stealership.
Nowadays theres not much to screw up. Its unplug one harness and plug in the new one, add a module if needed. And labor is going to be cheaper elsewhere. Ma & Pa business doing it for there only living are going to be better at it.
