Default Missing Camry Options

For the past 16 years I have been a faithful Toyota owner (1
Camry, 1 Prizm, and 1 Pickup). I'm hoping this year to purchase my
second Camry. This one will be the SE. Two options I wish a Camry
would come with is 1) Remote starting and 2) OnStar. Nothing worse then
going to the car in the winter in my companies parking lot to a cold
car. OnStar I know is for GM owners, but to me its the icing on anyone
purchasing a car with safety in mind. Also, if the door is locked and
I forget the keys in the car, bam its open.

Why pay thousands for Onstar when a $50 call to a locksmith will remedy it?
How OFTEN does anyone lock their keys in the car?

As Far As I know, OnStar is not available yet to Toyota owners. But a
Remote start is available from many places aftermarket and are very
reliable when installed properly.

OnStar is available in many other model cars too, one example is
Saab.........Yeah, Saab...........Go figure. My company has the repair
contracts on most of the OnStar products available,...........maybe
all of 'em. We are certainly the largest of the Re-man centers for
them. There is talk of Onstar becoming available as a "universal Unit"
in the future. So keep your ears open.

I forgot to add that On-Star is a wholly owned subsidiary of GM.

No manufacturer offers remote starting. This is an aftermarket only
device.

This statement is kinda untrue,.............not completely false, but
that's a statement of an incoplete nature.

Ford actually does offer a Remote start system to add to Ford
Cars/trucks. It is a ford labled product. It does not however , come
installed from the factory. It is ONLY AVAILABLE AFTERFACTORY.
It is even covered by Fords 3yr 36k mile warranty once installed. If
done by a Ford Authorized installer................So it is true they
are not offered from the factory. But they are offered by a
manufacturer.

Now, to add to this silly nit picking that I Have just thrown out
there, the unit/s that are offered by Ford are not manufactured by
Ford. They are Built by CODEALARM..........A very well known company
that builds lots of models of automotive security and convenience
pieces.

My company has actually installed the Ford units on Toyotas in the
past, so I imagine they could be adapted to the later model Toyotas
also.This is only an assumption, as I am aware of some minor issues
from the last ones I remember being involved with a couple or three
years back..............Call Codealarm and ask 'em what they have come
up with..............it's worth a shot anyway.

Not true, Chevrolet offers it on Malibus, and Pontiac on
G6s. For example, from
http://www.pontiac.com/specs/specs_c...r.jsp?brand=g6
"Remote vehicle starter system, included in key fob"

Dodge offers it now, too.

And I believe On-Star can be added also.
