Now you can securely remote start, lock/unlock, or find your car just by pushing a button on your smartphone, using the exciting Directed SmartStart app from Directed, the leader in vehicle security and remote start. And, now the same convenient app also lets you arm and disarm your compatible home security system.

Corporate Greed! My 1 star is for the developer. Directed who provides the service for the app on your phone is the optimy of corporate greed. I paid for three years of app smart start service, with no GPS. When I upgraded to a GPS unit they would not give me any credit toward svc paid. Would've had to pay all over again. I took the app off my phone & they can kiss my u know what. Who do they think they are anyway! I will never use their service ever! I'll get my $ back in additional equity if I ever sell my car.

This used to be great but now I'm using an s5, there's a major flaw in the design of this app. Because of the design, I can not get to the menu that allows me to refresh the status page.

Timestamp There is no way to refresh to get a status of your vehicle.

I don't get it. Why would anyone pay 5, 6, $700 for something that might or might not work when you can get remote starter installed for $250 with no annual contract and no annual fees. And the best part is that they work every day to the day your cars actually die. Just go to pep boys

App won't open half time and status screen is now useless There is no way to refresh status screen in app on Galaxy S5 so that feature is useless. App crashes half the time I open it asking me to send error report. No hybrid map option like IPhone app years behind where this app should be for the money you spend on the system this app is "suppose" to run. Quit jerking us around and fix this junk!!!!!!
