Adding factory remote start to a 2012 Silverado?
Can you add the factory remote start to the 2012 Silverado without much hassle?
Is it as simple as buying new key fobs? Or is there something that the dealer has to actually install?
If so, anyone have any part #'s or literature for this?

I believe there is a module/software that must be installed to have remote start. I would call your local dealer and ask them. They will also give you any part numbers you need.

I just had Rod Hatfield Chev in Lexington KY do this for my truck. If your truck is already prepped it is a "kit" which basically consists of two new remotes that have the starter on them and then they program the remotes and your truck.
If it does not I think there is a bit more to it. For me having a dealership get the kit (key fobs) and install/program was about $300 total for my duramax.
...being able to start the truck with my cell phone via the OnStar app - REALLY AWESOME! Truck is warmed up when I am ready to leave work.

You can get a nice remote start that will use all the factory features via the databus interface. My heated seats and rear defrost turn on automatically if it is below a certain temp. They cost around $200 installed. It is cheaper than the dealer and you have added range. Only option that you do not get is the onstar app that @E_HILLMAN mentioned. There are remote start companies that can do that also. I have a friend that turns his truck on from his cell phone with an aftermarket starter.

I have had others
As long as they use the databus interface (which is $80) then most of them will activate the factory included features.
