With Winter fast approaching adding a remote start to my Promaster has become a priority. I was looking at my options and found the Evo-One supposedly works on these and has some very intriguing options. Does anyone here have one of these on their Promaster? Anything to say about it good or bad?

Just installed one about a month ago. Went in very easy, but I do have some experience with electronics. I basically stripped the jacket off the wires I need to attach to and soldered. Only a couple wires were cut to break the circuit and run through the box. It is programmed via a PC and there are 2 sides to the unit. Security and Remote Start. Both are programmed individually (this is something that took me a bit to realize). The box is amazingly small, a little larger than a deck of cards.

There are a couple things that I don't like, but I think they are just setting I need to change for my preference. I haven't had the time to make the change. One of them is that the doors relock after the cargo doors have been closed. I am concerned about setting the key down and shutting the door.

Happy with the purchase. Glad to be able to use the OEM remote to activate the remote start.

Looking at the same one myself. Been using one on my 2013 Jeep Wrangler for a few years and it's been flawless .

That's good to hear. Did you install it yourself or have it done? I haven't got a quote yet from the local dealer/installer, but I found the Evo One and the extra cable I need for the install for only $130 shipped online. Supposedly it's very easy to hook up, so I might go that route in the insatlled quote seems excessive.

I did it myself. It was quite easy, only took about 30 min. Seems like the Promaster looks a bit more complicated though. I need to study the instructions more.
