    I thought I saw somewhere that these cars can be remote-started with a phone app (as well as the key fob). I am still awaiting my Charger so have nothing at hand to reference. Is this correct? If so, it is required that the car have the optional Internet option activated?

    This is a feature of the uconnect app. Tammie can confirm for sure, but I've read multiple times this vehicle, as well as a few other of Dodge's latest vehicles can do this.

    Are you guys saying girls can be started by remote and boys can't be. I'm not going to touch that one. I'm refering to our cars boys are manual girls are automatics. Tammie, April, help me out of this one.

    Thanks; looks very cool! I was trying to figure out the mechanism by which this works; but now that I understand it is from UConnect - I looked at that website. It loks like it is part of a service; one for which I guess you need to pay?

    The UConnect service, called UConnect Access Advantage and Mobile, are included in the purchase of the Hellcat. It requires you to register an account online, however, it is only a 6 month trial period specifically for the UConnect Access Advantage Plan. Then you have to pay a subscription of $14.99 per month there after. For UConnect Access Mobile, it just uses your phones data plan to update internet radio apps that work with UConnect (don't forget to disable this feature in the UConnect Mobile App if you don't want to eat up your data plan).

    This is all to say, the Remote Start feature by using your phone is free for 6 months, then you have to pay $14.99 per month, or just use the remote start button on your key. Below is a snapshot of all that is offered in each package.

    That would be nice if the have changed it from 6 to 12 months now. All of the Window Stickers are showing 6 month.

    One of the largest advantages I see is the Anti-Theft and Vehicle Finder features of UConnect access.

    I've had this system on diesel JGC for a year. It really is nice t be able to start my car from work and walk out to a pre-warmed car!

    My HC is an M6 so I don't get the remote start options. However I will keep the service for the voice texting. Its so nice to hear texts read to me and then be able to dictate and send a response while driving.
