    Corvette

    The new Corvette has the exact features that the Lexus has---proximity sensors for unlock and push button start.
    Why not use the BT in your cellphone to trigger the PIC, I always have mine with me and 99% of the time the battery IS charged. That 1% is why you need a manual override for the whole system.

    Can you configure the output signal strength of your cellphone? Or can we just decrease the input sensitivity for the receiver?
    BT cellphones will definately be interesting... and cheaper than making some reciever. Plus, don't most BT cellphones have JAVA support?

    You could do remote start.

    Wouldn't be any harder than remote door lock/unlock/open, trunk pop, window up/down

    You wouldn't need a seperate remote either.

    Remote start would just be another relay. You get a remote car starter from an alarm manufacturer and hook up to it. We could also use the remote car starter to start the car from one press of the button in the car, instead of holding it while the engine is cranking.

    If a 10-digit pin takes on the order of weeks, imagine what a 100-digit PIN would do for security.

    Also, if you disable pairing beyond the initial, you decrease your risk even more.

    Yeh. also you can increase search time dramatically by putting in ASCII characters (alt + number on the numpad). ♣

    can you use special characters in a BT PIN? It's not only numbers?
