Honda Remote Engine Starter System
With just the push of two buttons, the remote emits a signal to the receiver unit installed in your Honda and commands the vehicle to both start and stop. Not only can you start your Honda knowing it is protected at all times, but it provides the power in your hand to warm up your vehicle in the winter and cool it down in the summer
Two-way remote system that lets you know your vehicle's status
A maximum of two consecutive starts with the remote in order to prevent carbon monoxide build up
Pre-wired and design to interface with your vehicle. No cutting wires
Retains your electronic immobilizer and security system
200–foot range
Command button to prevent accidental engine starts and stops
Automatically activates vehicle climate control and defroster
Available only with automatic transmission models
MSRP $509.00
The prices on this site are estimates only and do not include installations. Actual accessory prices are set by your Honda dealer.

for 6 speeds, compustar is really the only safe option.

all the other ones on the market are not designed to work
with manual trans.

Just be careful when you go to an installation shop. We had a brand new 06 camry sitting in our install bay after an employee fried out the ECU. oops
