    This would be great if it also included a remote start feature.

    It does -- though it only works over Verizon or by using the online portal. Otherwise, you have to get close enough to the vehicle to use Bluetooth, which kind of defeats the purpose.

    A lot of carmakers have smartphone applications that can control certain aspects of the car, like door locks and remote start, though they're usually only for one kind of cell phone and not all car manufacturers offer it. That's about to change, thanks to a gadget called the Delphi Connected Car. If you need to, you can get car for bad credit so you can drive around.
