    what happens when you get out of your car, and a button on the remote is pressed while its in your pocket?

    then the carputer is on while its parked, u get back, dead battery
    Not sure about you, but I believe the general consensus around here is that ppl have DC-DC power supplies or inverters that will auto cut-out when the battery starts getting low, preventing this from ever happening.

    I think leaving headlights on would be more of a concern....

    Easiest way, is just remote start it. The car starts, so does the PC. Whe I see my car, I push the remote three times, the headlights flash, and it starts up. Whe I get in the car, music is playing.

    It won't go off by accident too easily because it is 3 pushes within a short time, so the possibility is reduced. Even if it does, it just wastes a little gas for 10minutes then shuts off. The PC is only on when the car is charging the battery.

    My remote start only cost me like $50 including shipping.

    Seems the more logcal way to go seeing as how you get many more options for a little more money, and you don't have this keychain dongle that only does 1 thing.

    well, depends how its all hooked up, and what exactly is hooked up i suppose

    but your probably right :T

    personally, i'd set it to the horn on my car so i dont have to remember where my car is, but not have to actually set the alarm off

    Pilot has a four channel wireless remote,each channel is programmable on/off switched or momentary on/off......

    cost was around 25 bucks,was purchased at an Autozone,and could handle 15 amps per output,WITH seperate inputs per output, so you could have an output on ignition only... you could also easily add relays to boost power...

    used it an undercover install, officer didnt want ANY buttons, ANYWHERE..so I installed it, and the buttons were on his keychain remote..used one button for siren,one button for airhorn, one button for lights, and had one button left over....
