Viper's VSM350 SmartStart GPS Module lets you use your smartphone or similar device to locate, secure, and start your vehicle, and much, more. Once you're connected to the Cloud via the Viper SmartStart App you've downloaded to your device, you'll be able to lock and unlock your doors, pop the trunk, or start a car equipped with a compatible Viper remote start system. SmartStart GPS can even alert a nervous parent when the vehicle's not in the right area or traveling too fast. If your device has internet service, you can communicate with your car and can control many of its functions remotely, even if you're hundreds of miles away.
The VSM350 uses Verizon CDMA/3G technology to communicate with the Cloud, giving you wide national coverage, fast response times, and low power consumption anywhere in the United States (no service in Canada).
First, you'll need to purchase a 1- or 3-year subscription to Viper's SmartStart GPS Premium service plan in order to take advantage of the features SmartStart has to offer. The plan's most valuable and reassuring feature is membership in the Viper Motor Club, which entitles you to free roadside assistance, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year — a great feature if you need towing, a new battery, or a tire.
The SmartStart GPS app can show you your car's location and alert you if it leaves a designated location. The app can display your vehicle's speed, and alert you if that speed gets too high. With one click, Social Media Check-in lets you share your parking location with your Facebook friends. When you upgrade to the GPS Premium Secure service plan, you can set up a SmartFence around your car that alerts you if the car leaves that area, and create a HotSpot that alerts you if the car enters a forbidden zone. SmartSchedule, another feature in the Premium service, sends you behavior-based reminders when it's time to start your car, taking into account your commute time and outside temperature.
The Viper SmartStart app displays a background image that shows you what the weather's like at your location. For your peace of mind, the Vehicle Status screen shows you whether your car's locked, armed, running, or has a door open. If anything disturbs your car's security system, SmartStart will send an alert to your phone and a text message with the details of the occurrence. Every time you use your phone to lock your car, the SmartPark feature remembers where you parked. To return, you press "Find My Car" and SmartPark shows you a map to your car accompanied by any helpful notes or photos you stored there.
Like a lot of security systems, the Viper SmartStart also includes a panic button, so you can set off an alarm in case of an an emergency. Two auxiliary channels allow you to turn on the dome light, open the windows, or control other additional actions. The Parking Meter keeps track of the time remaining on your meter, alerting you when it's time to feed it more coins.
That's right. Some smartphones with voice command capabilities let you gain access to SmartStart verbally from wherever you are, as long as you have phone service. SmartStart works with most iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices, select Android devices, as well as Apple and Android smartwatches. The Home Control feature even allows you to access and control your Alarm.com-powered home security system from your smartphone, so you'll know your home is safe and sound while you're away.

Great product very easy to install in a 2014 jku
Excellent product and just what I was looking for. I had Crutchfield install this Viper VSM350 SmartStart GPS module as well as a Viper remote start system in my Infiniti G37S coupe. All functions are working as desired: remote start, lock doors, unlock doors, panic, trunk open and GPS tracking. Crutchfield installed these add-ons and was also able to integrate them with my car with an adapter module designed to work with my vehicle. All of the folks at Crutchfield were professional, friendly and made the experience a pleasant one.
Pros: Convenient vehicle remote control via Viper smartphone app Can locate car anywhere in U.S. Excellent customer service by Crutchfield
great product easy install!
Pros: easy install and great service from Crutchfield!
Overview: The Viper VSM350 SmartStart GPS module allows you to operate specific functions of your SmartStart-ready car security or remote start system from your smartphone. SmartStart operates nationwide using Verizon CDMA/3G technology. The SmartStart app is compatible with iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) with iOS 8.2 or later, and Android devices with OS 2.0 and up. SmartStart is also designed to work with Apple Watch and Android Wear devices. A service plan is required to operate SmartStart.
Note: If you do not need GPS capability, please see the Viper VSM300.
Voice Commands: The Viper SmartStart app for Android (v4.0.6 and later) now supports voice commands. Currently the three supported commands are start my car, lock my car, and unlock my car.
Multiple Vehicles: SmartStart modules can be installed in multiple vehicles, and you can control each one on your smartphone. A screen on the app lets you choose which vehicle you want to control. The SmartStart module can be controlled by multiple phones, as well. This is helpful for families with multiple vehicles and multiple phones.
Basic Functionality: With SmartStart, you can use your smartphone to pre-warm your car's cabin in the winter, pre-cool it in the summer, lock/unlock the doors, arm/disarm your alarm, and locate/track your vehicle. Your vehicle responds exactly the same way as it does when using the alarm system's remote control, with audible and visual confirmations. Using your device, you can perform the following commands, which appear as icons on the touchscreen:
GPS-related Features: The VSM350 adds GPS capability to your SmartStart module, giving you several extra features:
Virtually Unlimited Range: SmartStart works over the 3G cellular network, giving you virtually unlimited range anywhere in the United States. As long as your vehicle is in range of a GSM cellular signal and your phone has a 3G (or better) signal, SmartStart will work.
Service Plans: SmartStart hardware is an "always on" connected device that communicates over a cellular network. Just like a smartphone, SmartStart requires a service plan to communicate over the network. With the SmartStart GPS module, you will need to purchase a GPS Premium Service plan of your choice of 1-year or 3-year plans. Not only will you receive the basic SmartStart features (remote start, lock/unlock, and provide 24-hour roadside assistance through Viper Motor Club), you will also receive special GPS-related features.

Because I have the module that doesn't have the gps feature and would like that feature [ Elazer Dec 24, 2015 ]
Because you already have a "SmartStart" capable system it should just be a simple replacement of the module.

You need to buy the auto start system or the alarm system with auto start . There is a new alarm with auto start that they don't carry. The difference is the remote is totally different and the mile range is longer then the one they sell and there two ports for motion sensitive one for the glass and one for the window. I wish i would of got that system. They told me that i have the lastest system in which i don't i had to tell them that after i got it install. But the f350 is the lastest model.
