Key Features


Fit for Your Toyota

Compustar systems speak directly with your Toyota vehicle's internal computer to safely start your engine from long-range. This powerful connection also allows you control your vehicle's other factory features with your Compustar remote.

For example, arm your factory alarm using your Compustar remote - you'll even receive a notification when your alarm is triggered if you have a Compustar 2-way LCD remote or DroneMobile.

Upgrade to 2-Way

One of the primary advantages of upgrading your Toyota vehicle with a Compustar remote start is 2-way confirmation. Compustar 2-way remotes provide visual and audible confirmation when you successfully start and lock your vehicle from the remote.

Compustar 2-way remotes also greatly extend the range of your system, allowing you to remote start your vehicle from up to 3 miles away.

Additional Peace of Mind

Compustar systems can be configured to protect the inside and outside of your Toyota vehicle - and will immediately alert you if an intrusion occurs. This is possible through the Compustar systems' direct communication with your vehicle's internal computer AND our DAS-II sensor, which detects shock, tilt, and glass-break.

To receive alarm notifications, make sure your Compustar system is connected to a 2-way LCD remote or DroneMobile.

Toyota Remote Start Reviews

compustar 5 star review

Great Kit!

Great kit! I had one a 2016 Toyota Tacoma and it worked well so I put one on my new 2019 Tacoma and it works even better! I understand that the wiring has been improved. I highly recommend this kit.

Remote Start- Toyota Camry 2018

Very pleased with installation and product. Remote has good range and can start car from where I live on the 3rd floor. Simple one button remote, might upgrade remote in the future. Also with the installation, I am still able to use my current key fob to start car as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I purchase and install a remote starter for my Toyota?

I don't see my Toyota model or model year listed. Is it compatible with Compustar remote start?

Can I use my Toyota's factory remote to start my car?

Will adding a remote start void my Toyota's factory warranty?

Can I add Compustar remotes or DroneMoible to my Toyota's factory remote starter?

What is a Control Module?

The control module is the device that is installed inside your vehicle and adds remote start functionality.

Does it matter which Compustar Control Module I purchase?

In most cases, no. All of our control modules are built with high-quality components and go through rigorous testing to provide the best remote start experience for you and your vehicle.

For certain vehicles, such as manual-transmissions, diesels, or European makes, your installer will need to use a specific control module to ensure seamless integration with your vehicle.

What is "Factory Fit Installation?"

Compustar offers "factory fit" installation t-harnesses that have factory-style connectors that plug right into your vehicle.

While "factory fit" t-harnesses greatly streamline installation, you should still trust a professional with your remote start install. Learn more about t-harnesses here.

Can I upgrade my Accessories later on?

Yes! You can always re-visit your place of installation to upgrade your system's remotes or add security sensors.

Which remotes are compatible with my Compustar system?

If your Compustar system was installed in the past 12 years, you can add any remote kit to your system.

Please note: some remote kits may offer functionality that is not supported on older control modules (e.g. Proximity Unlock on PRO T13 and PRO R5).
