Hi All.... the IGLA system has been mentioned in many threads but doesn't have its own dedicated one so I thought I would start one.

I had this system installed in our TC after a lot of research. It's really slick and I'm happy with it. It was about $750 USD installed (all in) at a authorized dealer.

In short, you need to enter a PIN into the OEM steering wheel buttons before you can drive. You pick the PIN (there is no master). Auto start still works from the fob but the engine dies if you don't put a PIN code in.

There is no evidence the system is installed other than it connects to one of the many CAN/LIN Bus junctions. It took about 2.5 hours to remove and reinstall what was needed to access the junction.

For any douche that isn't towing or wanting to spend a bunch a time in the car to figure out what's what to steal it... I am happy.

I know authorized installers is a challenge to find in the US and Canada. I have one by my house.

If you have any Q's feel free to ask.

Out of curiosity, can you explain the Auto start function from the FOB? It starts and stays running for the same amount of time until you put in your custom PIN?

I believe that they can also program and anti car-jacking feature into it for an additional cost. At least my installer did that. He did a test with me on it at the time. We left the car running, opened the drivers door (simulating like someone got into your car while it was running) and then went driving. The car shut down about 500 metres later. Only way to restart it was with the pin code.

The unit also comes with 2 key fobs that will bypass the system if you need that when it is in for service.
Again, though so people have had their vehicle in for service only to find out it was then stolen. Probably best to put those away unless you really need them.

I really wish they did a better job with the security features of their vehicles from the factory.

I wish I’d known about this before I had the Ravelco installed. Would’ve saved so much money AND you don’t have to remember to take off the cap and carry it around with you every time. This seems much better

Just to add to PBGas' comment...

With the app you can turn the carjacking feature on and off.

The system comes with two fobs about the size of a silver dollar. You can leave it in the vehicle when going for service and the system wont activate. Installer told me to keep the batteries out of the fob in the interim. You can adjust the range through the app but better safe than sorry.
