Question about Car Audio & Video
No i am affraid a cell phone
enhancing product won't work. they are different fm and cell.
I suggest going directly to the battery for power and ground. Also, placement of the antenna is critical, it should be placed high on the glass- like centered on the windshield above the rear view mirror. If you have tinted windows, metallic tint will affect your range as well. If you've noticed your range decrease recently, try replacing the battery in your remote.
If all else fails, you can always upgrade.
If you have good antenna placement and a good battery in your remote, you may be at your maximum usable range. Note that I used the battery that came with my last remotestart/alarm/keyless for a year, then replaced it. After replacing it I noticed the range almost doubled, maybe the other battery was just cheap? Maybe it had been sitting in storage for a few years? In short, if your connections are good and the install is done properly you may just have to live with this.
you can try this http://www.crutchfield.com/S-vRZu4gTzbfP/cgi-bin/prodview.asp?i=514AUANT
but the range should be atleast 200ft. not 80ft. 80 means you are near interference or there is a big issue. hth

You do not say how much more range you need. If you are talking about double your existing range that may be possible but if you are talking about triple or more that just may be impossible with the OEM unit. If you can find the antenna and make it allot longer and mounted higher, than the stock antenna it will increase the range. How much is impossible to say. A repeater would have to be mounted somewhere between you and the vehicle so I really do not see how that would work for you. Unless that repeater was really powerful and could be mounted in your office. You would also need a repeater that emulates the frequency of the remote. I know this is probably of no help to you but it is all I have. Good luck and I hope you figure this out.

U could do this, but you will need to figure out the frequency of the remote to do it and then find a suitable repeater, there are remote starters that can use a cell phone repeater signal to start the car, it is called a JayCar SMS Controller, contact any auto electronics installation and sales service for details on this cell phone activated remote starts system, this really the only viable option.
