I don't think adding an aftermarket remote starter can void a warranty unless it can be proven to be the cause of a failure of an OEM part. Otherwise no one would have one installed.
I've noted mention on the forum of many feature limitations of the OEM Toyota remote starter so I doubt you'd find the ones you want.
For instance they all, Toyota and aftermarket, shut the engine off if you get in and touch the brake pedal before turning the key on. I saw no logical reason for that since you can't drive off w/o unlocking the steering and bypassing the Park lock, so on my self-installed one I disconnected the wire to the brake light switch. Gave me a feature I wanted - no dumb shutoff.
