The owner of this 2020 Toyota RAV4 recently contacted the team at Mobile Edge in Lehighton to inquire about upgrading his new vehicle with a selection of accessories. He wanted a long-range remote car starter, premium window tint and a set of running boards to personalize and complete the features of the vehicle. He made it clear that he wanted the solutions to be the best of the best so that everything would last. Our team was happy to deliver!
We coordinated a rental car for the client so that he could still get around while we worked on the vehicle. An agent from the nearby Enterprise location met the client right here at the store once he’d dropped off his vehicle.
Compustar Remote Car Starter
The first upgrade to the Toyota was a remote car starter. The client chose the Compustar T12 two-way remote control package so he’d have as much range as possible. This remote can work as far as 3 miles away from the vehicle under ideal conditions. What really matters is that this class-leading signal strength translates to reliable performance over shorter distances when being used inside of a building. The two-way communication technology confirms when a command from the remote has been received and executed by the starter system.
We also installed a Drone telematics interface on the RAV4. Drone is a piece of hardware that uses high-speed cellular data communication to relay commands from the DroneMobile app on the client’s phone to the vehicle. If he wants to lock the doors or start the vehicle remotely, he presses a button on the app. He can also check the interior temperature or battery voltage and use the GPS functions built into the Drone hardware to see where the vehicle is. He can also control the vehicle using a web browser on any internet-connected computer or smartphone.
Premium Heat-Rejecting Window Tint
Next on the list was window tint. Again, the client wanted the best there is. We installed 3M Crystalline film on the side and rear windows of the Toyota, as well as on the sunroof. We used 70% film so that the owner can still see clearly at night. What makes Crystalline film amazing is its ability to block infrared energy from the sun. Even in a very light 70% shade, the film blocks more than 50% of the total solar energy so that the interior is cooler and more comfortable.
We added a visor strip to the top of the front window using a darker 20% 3M Color Stable film to reduce glare from the sun when driving at dusk.
Toyota Running Board Installation
The last upgrade was a set of RAL-B running boards from Romik. These European-made boards feature an aircraft-grade aluminum core that bolts directly to the chassis of the vehicle. Each board can support up to 400 pounds, so there’s no concern that they’ll buckle or bend. Our technicians ensured that all the fasteners were torqued to spec after making sure the boards were aligned with the wheel arches and rocker panels.
Toyota Accessory Upgrade Project
When the client returned to the store to pick up the vehicle, we explained how to use the remote starter system and how to care for the tinted windows. The client was thrilled!
