The 2-way feature is great on this remote. But just because you're paying 50-100 for this remote, don't expect it to be high-quality. I've owned two in the past, and each one has broken the same way. The first problem- Solder joints. After a couple of months, the solder joints (on both) would break, especially around the battery terminals. Easy fix- Simply resolder the joints. Next, the cosmetic paint and light labels will rub off, and thats when things start to go downhill. If you keep it in your pocket like other car remotes, the plastic case will start to break- Notably at the top right corner. Once that happens, the remote looks awful, and the keyring will fall out because the tabs holding the two halves together have weakened too.

On top of all that, the second remote I have sometimes beeps, and sometimes doesn't.

If you want the two-way feature, you can get this. But if you want a solid remote, consider buying the compatible 1-way version, P/N 7141V or 7141 P (python and viper remotes are interchangeable). It will not give you audible feedback, but it will save you frustration. They are compatible with the LED 2-way systems, too.

I sure hope DEI's new systems use better remotes. Its a mystery to me as to why Viper Alarm systems are as popular as they are- nothing but plastic junk in my opinion.

UPDATE:
I picked up a less expensive one-way Viper remote that is compatible with my system (I was tired of throwing down so much $$ for a piece of crap). It is about two months old, and is starting to crack as well.

This was an exact replacement for the remote that came with my Viper 771vx remote start alarm. The original lasted about 4 1/2 years and was held together with a rubber band for the last two. The case for the unit is not very well made and will come apart over time. There are some instructions on the package for syncing the remote with the alarm. The instructions were a little confusing because it looks like you're suppose to program a different channel if you have the remote start so it didn't work after the first try. I used the instructions to program it to Channel 1 and it worked. Other than that, it took a total of < 5 minutes to get it set up.

This is a great value, progamming taks a few seconds if you know where the "valet button" is. Turn on the key, push the valet button once, press twice and hold til chirp, then push the lock button on the remote and bingo you're done. If you read the instructions, you'll never figure it out.

I needed to purchase a replacement transmitter for my viper 488v and viper.com wanted a ridiculous price. So i thought about trying this guys out because mainly the price was more reasonable. Not only was the price great, the shipping was pretty quick. It only took 2 days to get it. I definitely recommend these guys, they are the best.

This is my third replacement I started with a python 488p , replaced it with the clifford version about a year ago (of course I can't remember how to program it) these don't hold up well to kids dropping your keys! it busts open and you spend the next 20 mins on the ground trying to find the plastic pieces that cover the lights! if i remember correctly it is Door open turn key to on, press the vale <is that how you spell that? and then press and hold the button. I tried this and my car went into power saver mode and now wont start!

Worked perfect. It cost half of what best buy wanted to replace it for. It was surprisingly easy to program, and I was up and running in 2 minutes.

I installed and bought my Viper Alarm through Amazon 3 years ago. The alarm came with this remote and a lower grade remote the 7141v remote which they don't make anymore.

I've ordered this one as my 488V casing is lose even though it's mainly been used inside the home, mainly as a alarm next to my bed/head/ears.

This remote is great for my needs. I doubt the distance or range is as far as advertised but it is perfect for my application.

My Viper Alarm hasn't given me any problems since I installed it. I know if I'm at the store or nearby, when my alarm goes off, this remote raises Hell and that's what I like about it.

So buying this one is a backup to the one I have now as silicone glued my old remote together as new.

If I have problems with this new one, I'll let you know.

Many instructions on the web say to press the programming button in the car 8 times, holding it on the 8th press. If that doesn't work, try pressing the programming button only 2 time, holding on the 2nd press. Different Viper models that work with this remote require different programming procedures..
