    Oh. I don't think my car has it. But I don't get snow, so you need it more than I do.

    My car will call Nova for me. And I think my phone will turn off TVs, although I haven't figured out how yet.

    Yes, I've never had remote start before. It will be nice for the office. I don't need it for home, as I garage it, but it will be nice to warm it up in the winter when leaving the office.

    Still trying to get used to all the gadgetry.
