SmartStart Compatible

If you already have a compatible Autostart remote start system in your car, the DSMU300 or DSMU350 will add SmartStart capability to your system.

Now you can remote start or lock and unlock your car just by pushing a button on your Smartphone using the exciting new Autostart SmartStart app from Directed.

The simple graphical user interface gives you control over the following features of your installed Autostart remote start or security/remote start system: Lock/arm, Unlock/Disarm, Remote Start, Trunk Release, Panic or Car Finder. You can also control multiple vehicles - great for families! - and assign more than one user to control a vehicle. It's easy with SmartStart!

Virtual Tach System

Virtual Tach System (VTS), a dedicated A-to-D converter, samples your vehicle’s voltage hundreds of times each second, eliminating the need for a tachometer wire connection. The VTS constantly monitors the data and readjusts itself automatically in order to maximize its capability to start the engine properly in any weather or deteriorating battery condition.

All-In-One Manual/Automatic Transmission Remote Starter

By default, the remote control car starters are for manual transmission, but can be changed very easily, at the moment of installation, into automatic transmission remote control car starters.

HDR Technology

HDR is an acronym for "High Data Rate" and is accurately descriptive of its function. Unlike most RF protocols, radio frequencies are broadcast at a relatively slow speed which means that the time it takes for a command to reach the vehicle, it can be corrupted and therefore not be understood by the receiver. HDR bit transfer rate is 5 times faster than conventional RF technology and thus eliminates data transfer corruption and as a result produces far better operating range than conventional RF technology.

XKLoader3 Ready

XKLoader3 uses Bluetooth® connectivity to create a powerful link between you and thousands of vehicles and consolidates multiple tools into one small device that is controlled by your smartphone or tablet.

The XKLoader3 is compatible with all next generation technology platforms including DBALL2 and Directed Digital Systems, as well as VIP4.5 or higher.

Requires Directechs Mobile app (not included, but available as a free download for iPhone and iPad from the App Store and for Android devices from Google Play).

*Operating range based on line-of-sight unobstructed testing under ideal conditions. Actual range will vary due to local conditions including, but not limited to, environment, terrain, physical obstructions, vehicle location and orientation, interference and other possible impediments.
