Remote car start, useful helper or luxury uselessness? While in Europe we have the function of remote start is a relative novelty, in the USA, remote start is a common part of cars from the lower middle class. What are the benefits of remote start and how can it make life easier for each of us?
The main advantage of the original remote start installed by the manufacturer is the possibility to warm up the engine before you put it in the vehicle. This is suitable before dynamic driving or in modern diesel vehicles, where heating the engine also leads to heating of other components, especially the DPF filter.
Another plus of the remote start is the possibility to heat or cool the vehicle thanks to the fact that the interior comfort system is activated together with the engine. In most cases, however, it is necessary to set the desired temperature when leaving the vehicle, which can be not only annoying but also unusable, for example at higher temperature differences.
