Viper, the car security and accessories company, has released details for the latest version of its smartphone-based SmartStart vehicle control system. SmartStart 3.0, which we'll be seeing in Q1 of this year, includes a few new features aimed at moving the app out of remote-control territory. One of the previous selling points of SmartStart was the ability to start the car remotely to warm it up; now, drivers can tell the system their daily schedule and have it calculate the amount of time needed based on the ambient temperature, then send a reminder to start the car when necessary. The company is also planning to add more customization and feedback options, and promises vehicle diagnostics on some installations. There aren't a lot of details, however, so we're not sure yet how comprehensive any of these new features will be.
