I would buy Compustar, why?, the 2way paging system is pretty much the best in the industry. The brain is not changed year after year after year like all the other lines generally have been. They are not a me too company, they are the industry leader company. After that it is all about the install and the additional sensors that you may want / need.

Hey Rob, which bypass modules do you use with the compustar alarms you install? I had someone install the 9000fmr and he used a bypass module that was not a DEI one, but some other one that is supposedly better. But now what happens once in a while the codes get erased and I can't remote start. It takes him 10 minutes to reprogram it but it's annoying coming back to him all the time. Which ones are reliable and won't cause any problems?

I use either the Fortin or Idatalink modules for my bypass units. Dependent on vehicle. I have never had a issue with a module losing it's programming at all. If it is self installed, time to start tearing the install apart. Might be a bad connection somewhere or too much stress on a wire that is moving just enough to break it's conductivity.

i am not too familiar with their products but i have had a quick look at the website. what model would you recomend i look into in the Compustar line?
i want remote start and a real long pager distance. the Ungo SR9000 claims it will page up to a mile, hard to say for sure and i know there are limitations to any wireless technology. and what kind of real world distances are you getting with the Compustars'? thanks again MR2NR for all your help.

it might be a mile in an open field without any interference. However when you're inside a building the range drops. It's still way better than a regular alarm but it's not exactly what it is claimed to be. And I don't think the brand of the alarm really matters. on the other note I'd recommend the new Pro series Compustar PRO2WFMAS. Nice, solid remote (I suggest getting a leather case to preserve it). Does what it is supposed to do. Has lots of features including inside temperature and vehicle voltage check displayed on the remote, knock sensor that can be programmed to unlock the vehicle with secret knock. and a bunch of other regular stuff like remote starter and things like that. I wish the siren was a little louder though, seems a bit weak.

The PRO model that is available in Canada is the PRO2WFMAS and has proven to be a killer alarm rs. I have the older 2W8000FMAS in my F350 and it has done the job fine for me for going on 8 years now. I have only had to update the remote on it, the brain is the same now as it was back then. No new model every year crap. Range on mine under ideal conditions has been over 1KM.

i went to the CompuStar site and i cannot seem to find this model. i found some similar so i get the idea, looks nice. do they have a Canadian site vs US site? looks like they are in kent washington, not too far away from us.
could you pm me a quote?
