i worked for best buy as the senior installer for 5 years and installed many viper rs units. very rarely did i have any problems with the units themselves. usually the issues were related to bypass modules or specific issues with interfacing with a particular vehicle. they are good overall units and the one button system is pretty simple to install and use. not sure if you have talked to them about a price quote yet or not, but make sure you budget more than just the unit price. there is also a bypass module you will need and possibly need to run power from the battery for it.

They did mine. Not a 4205v but just a 2-way remote start. I also had them hook up the rear defrost to come on when I start it (they will have to try again for that). But I am very happy with the range and no issues to speak of so far.
I have been watching the ford factory remote start threads on here and if my dealer would have made me aware - I would have chosen the factory 2-way start. From what I have read it would have overridden my manual controls for climate.
Unfortunately - I have not been real impressed with any of our dealers around here and their lack of knowledge - but I probably should have researched more myself.
I like my remote start though and Best Buy did an acceptable job except for the rear defroster.

hey dkd114 did you ever get this specific viper remote start installed? I'm looking at getting the same model installed in my 2013 F150 very soon.
