    No offense but the other three are not so good, they dont have the range or options of COMPUSTAR far and away the best remote starts mine is rated for 1.5 miles and have started my truck from 3 miles before. Mine is also 4 years old the new ones are rated even further.

    Nobody needs to start there truck from miles away, but what that does mean is that it has more power to go through cement walls that have electrical wiring in them, such as indoor malls, your office building, etc.
