    Questions for the Viper 791xv

    1. What's the range on this baby?

    2. On the 2-way does it tell you if u locked ur car or not?

    3. What are the best features about this alarm, that makes this alarm the best for it's price?

    4. Did you install the alarm yourself? or did u buy it from a local shop and let them do it for you?


    I think i have a couple more, ill ask later on...


    Thanks,
    Dantezzy

    Re: Questions for the Viper 791xv

    1. they say up to 1/4 mile, which is probably true line of sight. otherwise, without LOS id say closer to 150-200feet

    2. yes, and tells u the status of remote start, ignition, what sensor triggered the alarm, and such

    3. thats your call

    4. no, i bought mine off ebay for about 187, and some extra goodies. had a local shop install it all for a hefty price. but its a good install

    it uses what, a xhf signal or something. with the size of the antenna if it has reflections its gonna kill it. another thing is to have a very powerful battery in there. lithium. dont even think about using rechargables because the voltage isnt enough to give you good range.

    line of sight id say yes, it can definately do 1/4 mile, put a building or some metal/cement walls in between and the range is drastically cut. thats just how HF works

    Re: Questions for the Viper 791xv

    range can be unpredictable. but after 8 months of using the 791, i have a sort of "feel" when it will page the alarm or not. my rule is if i can see my rearview mirror (where the antenna is mounted) i can page the ride, chin trick works occasionally for when i don't.

    i paid $550 for the alarm and was charged $150 for the install, this was at a DEI authorized shop in upstate NY.

    That's how my RSX 3.5 works. I tried starting my car behind a building, and it wouldn't start. When I peaked around the corner and press it, it worked. It's based on obsticals more than distance. BTW I paid $180.00 for the alarm and installed it myself. Took me a good 6 hours.... not bad considering it was my first time, and the complexity of the alarm itself.

    cheapest i found on ebay is 125 and that's from a personal seller. i'd rather buy it from a bigger company type and i can find em' for 180 online other than ebay.
