AirWarrior - I sent you the demo program to your phone. I guessed that you have the newer 8130 pearl. If you have the 8100 let me know and I will resend it.
The C3 is intended to be an add on system to a Autopage alarm. You are able to pick what system you want to fit your needs. If you want the system only for tracking you can use it with a basic alarm with keyless entry, starter disable, flashing parking lights, LED, 2 remotes, impact sensor and all the benefits of C3 for 700-800 installed. The features extend all the way to remote start, window control, back up sirens, proximity, tilt sensor, air horns, strobe lights, magnetic switches, glass tamper sensors, piezo sirens.... and the list goes on forever. Let me know if you are considering making the drive, what features you had in mind and make a model. If you want me to see who is C3 trained in you area I can do that too.
