199. IdeaSpark*: Cellphone Car Starter March 7, 2007

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in IdeaSpark*, Product, Service.

After work today, I thought of this IdeaSpark* as I entered my freezing cold car. Wouldn’t it be great if you could speed dial a number on your cell phone to start your car from a remote location? Get your parked car to cool down, or warm up (depending on the weather), before you head to it.

There are remote car starters that already exist (like here), but the range is limited, and can they transmit through buildings and parking garages? Also, this device will call you back in 10 minutes to remind you that your car is still on, just in case you forgot.

Yes, but wouldn’t it be nice to cool down your car on hot days via air conditioning? Tell me there are some hot days, even in beautiful So CA, or else I will have to move there, too.

Oh, that would be wonderful in the cold MN winters! I used to have a remote car starter and it made my life much better in the winter mornings. This would be fantastic.
