iPhone app unlocks car door, starts the car

iPhone

A new iPhone application will enable users to lock, unlock and remotely start their cars with the phone rather than the car's key fob. The application includes a receiver that is installed in the car.

In order to use the app, the car just has to have electric windows and locks. It doesn't require previous installation of a remote start feature. One big advantage: If you lock yourself out of the car with the keys inside, or if you lose your keys, you can still get into the car and start it.

The Viper SmartStart is the latest example of automotive electronics functions migrating into Apple iPhone and other smartphones.

The I Phone is putting out some amazing apps and functions. I still like my blackberry for business but I may try a I phone soon.

Laura, I'm still a Blackberry user too, but this caught my eye.

Thanks Anne and Matt.  I'm suspecting that some of these apps will be migrating to the Blackberry and the new Google based phones.

Hi Gabe:

I saw that on a commercial yesterday...

Amazing...

My first thought was, what if someone can unlock & start MY vehicle instead!!!

I don't know how much security is involved, but I would think it should be pretty secure.

Probably have that already in some home automation apps.  Have a great cup this morning (you probably already had one or two).
