2023 F350 Platinum Tremor 7.3L (built 9/25)
Here's a link to the company's website: https://iglaglobal.com/

There's fortunately an installer in Weatherford: https://www.4dautosolutions.com/igla-anti-theft-systems

Cost is $1,200 with installation, while the Ravelco is now about $650, so almost double the cost

Current list of authorized installers

Currently a few shops across the country will be authorized to install this Igla alarm system.

This product isn’t something any big box stores or large chain stores because security reasons.

Do not attempt to buy old product from eBay and other online retailers as they will not work.

I asked the installer if there's anyway to defeat the IGLA device, and he said not unless you uninstall it which is as challenging to do as the Ravelco with the way they hide the wires and the device itself. Instead of carrying the bottle cap sized key of the Ravelco, you can either enter in a code (which is pressing a sequence of buttons in the vehicle), carry small fob that automatically disarms the device, and your phone can also be set-up to disarm the device via bluetooth connection).


There's also a carjack mode, which effectively if you open your car door and take your foot of the brake for more than 3 seconds (assuming you're in park), it will disable the vehicle the next time the speed drops below 20 mph. This way someone who carjacks you can drive away, but as soon as they slow down, they're stranded. Here's a video that demo's that feature.

 
Can you change the "input code" at any time??
 
Looks very interesting, I wonder if it will integrate with the factory alarm. Definitely have to find out more about it and its capabilities
 
If it uses a fob it seems like the same technology they use to mimic the key for push button start would do the same thing to mimic the fob?
 
Now I definitely have to look into it . Do the drivers door handle delete, remove the lock pulls , and IGLA should be a healthy deterrent. I even have AROD’S kill switch that I haven’t installed yet. But definitely leaning towards the Igla

My question as well. Dont get me wrong, I love these companies like Ravelco and IGLA creating actual theft (not break-in) deterrent devices. Having a best friend who’s 250 Tremor was stolen at a Home Depot after his fob signal was cloned, any of those BLE devices make me nervous (just like our fobs, which I keep in a faraday sleeve when in public, so the same could be done for IGLA). IGLA is a Russian company, which means the code/tech is likely pretty solid (no, I’m not trying to be funny). 😄 I have/had Ravelco on two current vehicles and two previous. IGLA seems pretty cool.

I have the fob, but I only use it when I am taking my truck in for service or going somewhere where i'll valet to avoid having to put the system into service mode or give them the code. Otherwise, I have an app on my phone that acts as the fob or can use the code if I don't have my phone.

I don't know how easy it would be to clone the IGLA fob. The thief would have to identify the frequency and software to decode the signal to clone it.
 
Shit with the price we pay to keep these things from getting stolen it would almost be cheaper and less of a headache to just advertise that we own an easily stolen vehicle in the local paper and pay our insurance deductible. :cry:
 
What are your thoughts on the IGLA device after a couple weeks? Have you run into any issues? I know its still not long term, but seriously on the fence with either ravelco or IGLA when I get my truck

What are your goals with an anti theft device? What are your thoughts from what you do know about one 🤔 or the other?
 
I had an installer come out to my place, but the software update did fail and he said they are still working on the Super Duty. He could have installed it, but with limited functionality and no guarantee that the Super Duty would ever get a full-functioning version. So, I went the Ravelco route and I have been happy with it. The truck is still in my driveway ;-)

Obviously goal #1 is keeping the truck where its parked. Ravelco seems to do this perfectly. I would like (but could live without) to keep as much functionality as possible, such as remote start, which goes to IGLA. My biggest hold out with either of them os there effect on reliability in the future. Ravelco is fairly invasive and i have concern with any type of splicing (I dont know what they use). IGLA seems largely software based which has its own concerns, not to mention support is from a distant country at the center of some rocky geopolitics.

The device works as expected and haven't run in to any issues. I have noticed that I have to wait 4 - 5 seconds after starting the truck to enter in the code. So that's a nuance that will take some getting used to. For the most part, I rely on my phone to deactivate the device as I do not keep the fob on the key chain.

IGLA is also spliced into your vehicle like the RAVELCO, they just take different approaches to achieve similar outcomes.

Once your IGLA is installed and working, I can't see any reason why you would need further support from the installer or manufacturer. If you forget your code, they give you a card that has steps outlined on how to reset it. The system is programmed with this process, but not one that anyone could figure out without the unique code that is given to you at installation. I suppose if you lose the card and forget your access code, lose the fobs, and your phone somehow loses connection to the device / or you lose your phone, then you'll need support. Your installer would be who you would be working with and they would be liaising with the manufacturer.

Excellent non biased explanation 👏!!

Based on the above what I will offer is, I have had my Revelco installed almost 2 years, no issues. The shop I use has coordinated over 100 installs in last 2 years, no issues. I see you are from Washington, so summer remote start should not be an issue, and winter could be. To me that is a caveat I am willing to live with. Me, I'm not well versed or comfortable on software based electronics, therefore I like what I have. I don't have a clue what if any "hack" protections IGLA have in place but I would assume 🤔 it's possible.
 
FWIW, I have/had Ravelco on four different vehicles. Living in TX means more hot than cold. I wear fishing shirts most of the year and haven’t ever had an issue keeping the plug with me (I don’t notice it anymore than a key fob). Yes, remote start is gone, but when I approach the truck, I do the double-unlock and hold the button which lowers all the windows and begins letting the bad heat out. Not as effective as remote start to cool it, obviously, but it does help. In all four vehicles the last six years I’ve used Ravelco, I haven’t had a single problem/issue. My Land Cruiser has 227k miles on it, our Expedtion 107k miles and my ‘22 250 Tremor a measly 20k miles. :)

I have no experience with IGLA, so I can’t comment on that system.

Can it still be started using FordPass? Or is that disabled too?
