I just had a Remote Start installed in my 2014 Cadenza Limited. It is from Automate and the model# is AUTOMATE 4114A Remote Start. Automate is a division of the company Directed whose products include Viper and 6 other brands. The link to the Remote Start is below.

They also installed the Viper SmartStart GPS Module. Link is below.

I then purchased the Viper SmartStart GPS App for my Android phone.
The Viper SmartStart GPS lets you remote start, lock and unlock your car, just by pushing a button on your smartphone. SmartStart GPS includes the ability to locate your car from almost anywhere, plus other exciting features. I choose the GPS Premium 3 service plan that’s good for three years.
See the link below.

Everything is working GREAT, and I am very happy with the installation. Now my car is nice and cool when I get in it!

The AUTOMATE 4114A Remote Start was $295.95 installed.

The Viper SmartStart GPS Module was $299.95 installed.

The Viper SmartStart GPS App for my Android phone, the GPS Premium 3 service plan, that’s good for three years, was $199.99.

The features of the GPS Premium 3 service plan are listed below.
You get the lower per month rate because you pay for the 3-year plan up front.

• Only $5.56 / Month
• Remote Start
• Lock/Unlock
• Open Trunk
• Panic Alert
• Viper Motor Club
• Car Location/Speed
• Speed/Lockdown Alerts
• SmartSchedule
• SmartFence
• HotSpot
• SmartPark
• Parking Meter
• Status of car Ex. Car locked/Ulocked – Engine running etc……

So it cost me $595.90 for the hardware to be installed, plus the $199.99 for the GPS Premium 3 service plan for 3-years, for a grand total of $795.93, all installed by a local shop here in New Jersey.

Congrats! It's really a shame that remote start isn't standard or even an option.

I have had Remote Starts installed in my cars starting with my 1990 Ford Thunderbird Super Coupe, 1995 Mark VIII, 1998 Ford Windstar Van. Then I started buying Cadillac’s and you could get factory installed Remote Starts. In 2003 my DTS came with Remote Start, so did my 2005 CTS, 2008 CTS and finally my 2011 DTS

I don’t know why a 2014 Cadenza Limited does not come with Remote Start, after all the car listed for $43,460.00. (I paid $37,000.00)

I heard a rumor the Kia has always been afraid of Lawsuits if the car is started while it is in a garage!
