    Interesting - that looks long enough that you could leave it plugged in all the time? Is there a button at the end that you could press to temporarily disable?

    This uses your existing key fob and antenna, so the range is exactly the same.

    I just left the button in the glove box. The way I secured the Evo, I should just be able to reach under the steering column and plug it in if necessary. But to be honest I'm not too concerned with it, the car will only run for only a few minutes (I believe the default is 7 min's) without input anyway, then it shuts down again.

    I believe that is the intent of the button. Plug it in, hide it (or just put it somewhere out of the way) and use as needed.

    Got the EVO-ONE installed and as Srad600 alluded to, the instructions are horrible. So are the option descriptions. That said, is there any way to shut off the annoying 3rd, 4th, and 5th honks as the remote start happens? I'm not sure which specific option does this but I've seen a Youtube video where there is no honk when the remote start is activated. I don't mind the 2nd honk as it is standard OEM but the successive honks are annoying and I'd rather not be advertising that my vehicle has started.

    Just call Fortin - easiest way to get it done.

    Did you create that setting? From their literature, the car should run for a set interval then shut down unless someone intervenes.

    Regarding the Mycar add-on, did you install it yourself? If so was it easy?

    Nope, I just listened to the guy from Fortin.

    Mine also only beeps when you press the lock button, not a bunch more times as it starts.

    I saw this issue raised in some other threads/youtube videos: did you guys have issues finding a place to secure the EVO-One?

    I didn't, there's a metal substructure right under the dash, next to where everything plugs in. I just attached the device to that with zip ties.

    Sounds like customer service had you covered.

    Not sure if it has been mentioned before but Mazda now lists a remote start on their accessories page separate from Mazda remote start (app). This is actually a fob controlled system but only includes one standard fob. I imagine you can order a second. Under $500 installed. Anyone purchase this yet?

    People hate it....

    I don't recall where I found the reviews, here probably, but the app is buggy and slow and apparently not very accurate.

    Any why would you pay $500 for that? This is like $200 and works with both your standard key. You can also add on other components to make it two way, but that requires a different fob.

    Not the App. This is a new remote start just put up on Mazda's site. Operates with fob, not your phone. I know the phone app one sucks but this traditional set-up must be good and since it's from Mazda, if something goes wrong with the car it's on them.
