The wireless remote Fob isn't cellular, the DCM is and the signal it gets from Toyota Communications Center is what allows the car to be remotely started by the Fob.

Quick,
being the resident Toyota programming guru, is there a way to make the base 3.0 Entune enable the key fob to remote start the vehicle, or is the base unit missing the necessary parts?

I was wondering the same exact thing-
I have the XLE with just the 3.0 Entune system.
Is it possible to do what Japatar mentioned?

In addition.. is there ANY way to add the Remote Connect service to an XLE / 3.0 Entune?

Going by the Rav4 build page, you need at least Entune Audio Plus to have the connected services which include Remote Connect.

The XLE requires Entune Audio Plus to have the connected services, the XLE is the lowest trim to offer a package with Entune Audio Plus.

I'm sure it would cost more to upgrade Entune Audio to be able to use connected services if it was even possible, plus you would have to pay the $8mo/$80yr for the service, just adding a remote start system would likely be less costly and more practical.

Here's the Sep 2018 price list for connected services, doesn't include the Rav4, I couldn't find a 2019 list, maybe it's only published so often.

Any opinion on this remote starter...https://shop.mypushcart.com/vehicle-...its/2016-2019/

Thanks for the reply! BTW...saw your post about the Hella horns and the link. I am interested in getting them but the page says not for 19 Rav4? On a scale of 1-10 I am about a 4 mechanically...so I should be able to do this? Thanks again in advance for your help!

Amazon is always behind in their applications, it is for the Camry which has the same connectors as the Rav4, they'll bolt right on and the Rav4 connectors will fit the horns perfect, an easy install, hardest part is snaking the black cover off the car to make easy access to the horns from the top in front of the radiator.
