Which aftermarket system? Does it work with PTS (Push to Start) and have Smartphone (vs. keyfob)?I currently use the blue link remote start on the free trial. I will be ending my subscription and getting an aftermarket unit installed. For the cost of one year subscription to the standard blue link and the remote program, you can have almost paid for the aftermarket unit. Plus it adds resale value if you decide to sell later. I was really sold on the one mile radius of blue link, but most if the time I am much closer than that and it can take as long as 5 minutes to crank the vehicle using blue link. The aftermarket systems usually take 30 seconds. I guess I'm just too impatient lol.
Well apparently the Viper kit doesn't list the 2017 Santa Fe yet, and even though it lists the 2016, when you go to "build" the system, the smartphone remote start option is grayed out (you can't pick it), so apparently it can't do smartphone remote start for the Santa Fe.I haven't started researching the aftermarket systems yet. I'm still riding out my free trial. I do know that viper has a system that uses your phone as the key / key fob..... I just installed a remote start alarm on my titan 6 months ago for 250. It has a 2500 foot radius.
Well so far I'm not having any luck finding any aftermarket remote start that works with the 2017 SFS with a smartphone option.
I can find aftermarket's that'll work with an extra fob, and even with a 3,000 ft range, I doubt any of those will work through 12" concrete thick walls in a shopping mall, or through my building to the parking garage (but I know the cell phone signal that Bluelink uses works).
But if anyone can find one that'll work with the cell signal/smartphone that's aftermarket, let me know.
Rumor has it that you have a decent chance of doing the "XM" thing with Bluelink where you call to cancel and ask for a customer retention specialist and they'll give you a 40% discount (I haven't paid more than $8.95/month for XM for like 5 years, although they have a $4.95 promo for 6 months sometimes).
Again, just a rumor on that, I cannot confirm as I'm still within my free trial.
Thanks, but what i meant was that, like XM, supposedly you can get Hyundai/Bluelink to discount their rate as well.It's not a rumor, I just did the same thing with my XM subscription and offered me 12 months for $99 plus royalty fees.
