I agree it doesn't seem that big of a deal to start it using Uconnect. I like the fact it asks for a PIN so that no one can play around with my phone and start my truck. All the messages are optional. I wouldn't want to use my phone to start my truck unless I was a fair distance away from my truck I would just use the key FOB.
No the alarm doesn't go off when I start my Ram. I was saying there is a button on the app to sound the alarm (along with start/stop engine and lock/unlock doors options). They advertise it for locating your vehicle in a parking lot. Problem is, is that it works by turning on the alarm. The only way to turn it off once enabled is by hitting the panic button on the key fob in which case you have to be fairly close to the vehicle to do it. I'm sure it will probably turn off after it times out as well but it was so loud in my garage I wasn't willing to let it go to find out.
