Then lock it right when you get out... Before you walk away?Because if you can't actually see your car, but are within range... it's nice to hear the audible sound. I can't see the car in my driveway from the house.
I walk away from the Tahoe, click the button on the fob, and the horn sounds. No question. Can't remember if I locked it & I'm in the house.. click the button & it honks. Can't do the same with the Volvo. An audible sound would be nice. So would auto locking of the doors when you engage drive.
I've been tempted to bring you my R for an alarm install - its a special setup...This might be the perfect excuse to get a remote starter in your car
I got a COmpustar Pro 901 two way remote start/alarm system with the following optional add ons.
Now i can control and get alerts from the car from virtually anywhere. Smart phone apple/android/windows/blackberry or web based.
Basic alarm system with audible notification, no remote start should cost around $200 -250 depending on the shop.
