Evo1 vs evoAll for Mazda

0 votes

Which one would I need for a stock car with no remote start? I only want to use the OEM key fob to control it and don't have any other starter installed. From what I think, the evo all is not stand alone, which requires another starter from viper, compustar? But the evo one is standalone and so this is what I would need to be able to program to my oem key fob?

Specific  Mazda questions, but some background knowledge: Mazda cars have this issue where if a car has been remote started, the engine shuts off if the door is opened. It's a "safety feature " but clearly very poorly thought out. I'm wondering if Fortin is able to bypass it.

1) for a 2016 cx5 automatic, would the engine stop when a door is opened ? In this video below (skip to 15:15 if not already linked) you can see how this gentleman can open the door and engine still runs.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?t=917&v=wbIzTEKrUrc&feature=youtu.be There is still safety-engine turns off if he doesn't push start the car before touching the brakes. This video is for a 2019 cx5, but it uses the same key fob as my 2016 cx5. Would I expect same operation? I may have seen a user post a 2016 cx5 with the same issue. 

2) I'm planning to get a new mazda3, and install Fortin if it works well with cx5 above. Same question as above: would this system allow me to open the door and have the engine still run?

For a 2016 mazda cx-5 you would need the following parts for remote start using the oem remote:


1- evo-one

2- thar-one-maz3

3- flash link updater


With the products mentioned above the vehicle will not shut down on door open. 


This would be the isntallation and programming guide using the above mentioned products: https://fortin.ca/download/68261/evo-one_ig_thr_bi_maz3-3-6-cx5_pts_2014-2017_1key_a_68261.pdf
