Yeah, that's been listed as "coming soon" since at least April of 2017 when I first went to the site to see what they had.

Mopar does not make remote start for vehicles with manual transmission. That’s been my experience with my manual transmission Dodge Challenger SRTs and Jeep Wrangler JKs.

I was looking for the same and came across this... My main concern would be whether it would communicate with the FCA software or if there remains enough of the original Mazda parts to work.

I also saw this recently. I submitted a question on their website asking if it'd work. I'll let you know if I get a response.

Finally got a response from our friends at 12volt.solutions:

My boss said that our harness does in fact fit the Fiat ,but unfortunately ,the firmware is not the same on the remote start module itself. We do not currently support that vehicle at this time and would not have the module that you would need to be able to remote start the Fiat. I do apologize , but if you would like to keep checking back with us, we may carry one in the future.

Car like this doesn't need a remote start IMO. Always fun to press the button and here the exhaust sing; nothing beats the hand-to-car connection :geek:

Idling an engine to warm it up is not a great idea. Much better to get going and drive gently until the blue light goes off.

I can't open both doors in the garage so my wife has to wait outside while the car warms up for around a minute before I put it in reverse for her to get in. It would be nice to warm the engine up before jumping in it. I have remote start in my daily and it's a great convenience.
