I received this information from IGLA corporate in St. Petersburg regarding installation in Texas specifically San Antonio and Houston :
In San Antonio you can reach out to Chad Walton +1 (210) 996-0241
They are in the process of setting up Modfx as a dealer in Spring as well (close to Houston)

Anyone have trouble getting your iPhone to pair via bluetooth to the IGLA unit through their author app? When I select the IGLA unit in my phone's bluetooth settings it tells me to enter a code into the IGLA unit, however that is obviously not possible. So it doesn't let me pair my phone to the IGLA unit as a result and therefore I can't use my phone as a fob. Anyone else had this issue and if so, how'd you get around it? My installer was stumped and said he'd get back to me.

F&A Services out of LA. I reached out to IGLA corporate and they sent me instructions on how to use the "HID method" for bluetooth pairing. My truck is currently getting ceramic coated so I'll have to wait and try that later this week. Will report back if it works.

The iPhone should work since mine pairs just fine with the Bluetooth pairing.

If you need help, I know IGLA SoCal has helped others thru questions TRXers had with their IGLA too.

Okay, so update on my bluetooth pairing issue with the app. I was able to get the IGLA into HID mode, however that mode doesn't use the iPhone app, it just perpetually has you connected to the IGLA and leaves the IGLA in a mode where it's discoverable to iPhones close enough to the truck. I could not get the app to pick up my connection to the IGLA unit either.

So, while it does work and allowed the truck to start without entering my passcode, it's not really the solution I was looking for. Technically you could just toggle on/off your bluetooth in the iPhone settings every time you walk up, but I don't want people knowing there's an IGLA alarm somewhere close and even trying to connect to it. Let alone who knows how much parasitic battery draw that may induce?

I am more than comfortable just using the passcode every time I get in to the truck. In fact, I reached out to S&A Specialist out of Chicago who I found on youtube and they told me they highly recommend against using the phone and even the keyfobs just for security purposes. The passcode according to them is the most secure way to use the system which makes sense as no one can steal the passcode (not yet anyways until Elon's neural link company takes off ;)). I'll likely only use the keyfob for when I take the truck in to service by just leaving it in the glovebox. I did just that at the ceramic place who had it overnight and they were surprised when I told them I had a security system installed.

Anyways, below is the link to the documentation IGLA sent me which shows you how to change your bluetooth pairing methods. I also experimented with the folding mirrors feature and it did not work unfortunately.

*EDIT* -- IGLA asked that I remove that link.....sorry fellas. Once you get your installed you should be able to get your hands on it.

That isn’t how you connect or pair your phone. It is paired by entering into the programming mode and then pairing. It is an option that most installers do not do because if your within 25 feet of the vehicle (like inside your house) the thieves can steal it like they normally would. If you are wanting it paired, talk to the installer and they may pair it.

Folding mirrors and comfort features do not work for mopar, that is for a few foreign vehicles like toyota/lexus. The phone pairing procedure is in the link you posted. Input pin, hold gas, pin again, let go of the gas and then service button pressed 1 time. Then you can open the app and press the + to pair it. You need to disconnect all bluetooth devices on your phone to do it and if you have the fob, remove the battery. Again, the phone is highly discouraged to pair and use. The fob I use myself but do not ever leave it in your vehicle, service center or not unless they have good insurance that will pay market value because your vehicle can and will be stolen with zero effort. When you take it in for service, you do the pin then hold the gas and then press the service button 5 times to go into service mode. It will stay in service mode until you enter the pin again or its driven over 50kph (31mph) even for a second and then driven another 3 minutes.

Bummer on the mirrors and comfort features.

As for the phone pairing, my installer could not get the app to connect, nor could I using the install instructions I posted. It just sits and spins when I push the plus button in the app, which is why we tried to connect through the bluetooth area in settings that then lead to the iPhone asking for me to enter a code into the IGLA unit. That obviously isn't possible either, which is why I reached out to IGLA who suggested the HID method. That does work, but it leaves the bluetooth perpetually connected, which to your point about phone pairing being a security issue, I don't want to do.

The service mode I did see, but seems unlikely a dealership wouldn't take the vehicle over 31mph for road testing purposes, which kind of defeats the purpose of disabling it for the service visit.....unless we're just talking oil changes, which agree that would work.

Sorry, forgot to add that part. It will pop up asking for the bluetooth pairing code which is on the card included in the package. Your installer should have it filed away or possibly gave it to you

No worries at all, I suck at articulating myself through text, so apologies for this being such a back and forth, but yes, my installer gave me the card, and yes it has the bluetooth pairing code. As you know, that code is supposed to be entered when you push the "plus" button in the app. However, the app on my phone, when my installer pushed the plus button, it just spins, it does not bring up a window asking me to put in the bluetooth code from the card. This is where my installer got stuck/confused because he said it normally asks for the code at that stage.

We then tried connecting through the phones bluetooth pairing settings, which is where I got that other screenshot I originally posted. When I mentioned this to IGLA, they told me to try the "HID" method, which did work, but I didn't like, so I switched it back to "classic" (29 clicks instead of 28). Kind of funny how the settings are determined based on number clicks of the cruise control button.

Anyways, I think I'm good just to leave the phone not paired until the Compass unit comes out next year.

I posted above about the pairing, all connected devices need to be disconnected and then you can try the pairing. Sometimes I have to close the app and retry a few times and it will do it. If there is any other bluetooth devices in the area it tends to not let it go into the pairing mode.

wow - i still don't know how to copy and paste - this is much too convoluted for me - i would never remember the myriad sequences - i'll stick with plugging in the ravelco (a better match for someone like me who wants something that is plug and play).

Let me find out. As far as I know there are no installers in Washington yet. I am currently working with someone in Seattle and they will hopefully be up and running for installs pretty soon.

If the criminal removes the tazer and your vehicle has pin code. Can you enter the code and your vehicle operates just fine? Where does it holds the pin information if removed? If this is doable then RAM can easily enable and we wouldn't even need Tazer...
