Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY123 Made my old discontinued Martin garage opener compatible with my car's homelink
The unit is very lightweight and it installed easily with my discontinued Martin garage door opener that used the older and less secure radio frequency. I was apprehensive since I did not have any experience with garage door openers but just follow the instructions closely, go slowly, don't fall off the ladder, and you should be fine. I only needed a wire stripper, a ladder, and a screwdriver, though a drill would have made screwing the unit to the ceiling easier.
The unit comes with 1 remote but we don't use it because I synced it with all of our cars' homelinks. The range is a big improvement. I can open my garage from 2 houses away (approx 180-200 ft) and drive into my garage without having to wait for the door to open.
The bottom line is that it does everything I wanted it to do and it does it well. I only installed it on one of my doors but I plan to do the same thing for my other door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AHD4 Worked on early 70's garage door opener!
Very easy to I install, it only took about 15 minutes and worked like a champ. Best thing about it the kit worked on an early 70's model garage door opener! I refuse to buy a new opener until this one burns out.

It was necessary to install this duel frequency remote to get my Geni Garage door operator model 1024 to work. The Model 1024 frequency and the smart electric meter interfered with the operator.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michael Good product lacks complete instructions
Purchased 2 of these products to alleviate the frequency interference with the new military base Land Mobile Radio System in Groton, CT. Instructions and installation were straight forward. There are a few things you have to be aware of to get this product to work. 1) the new box/receiver is IntelliCode 1. 2) The new door openers are programmed for both IntelliCode 1& 2. 3) There are not any instructions included with this product to assist you with the new garage door remotes. Like many others, I had to google the instruction manual for the new garage door remotes so I could program them to IntelliCode 1 and make them compatible with this new receiver.
Results: Before installing this new receiver, I was only able to open my garage door by standing in front of it. After installation, I can open my garage door down the road before I reach my driveway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DataD00d Worked like a charm!
I had an issue with my Lincoln Navigator Car2U system not working with my Linear garage door opener. As it turns out Car2U is not compatible with Linear garage door openers. I discovered the GIRUD-1T on the shelf at my local Home Depot while shopping for a universal transmitter. I did a little research prior to making my purchase, but ultimately ended up purchasing and installing this system.
It was about a 20 minute installation process and once complete, I was able to sync the Genie transmitter included with the system and my Navigator's Car2U visor button to the GIRUD-1T and it works perfectly.
Anyone having issues with their existing garage door openers and their Car2U system should look into the GIRUD-1T as an alternative to replacing their garage door openers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quardz Excellent product and great range!
This installs in about 5 minutes and is pretty easy to setup the push button in your car as well as the remote. To program your car, you must make sure both the car and the reciever are in the discoverable mode. You may need two people to expidite the process so they don't time out of the discoverable mode. One to push the button on the reciever(this product) and one pereson to push the button(s) in your car per the owners manual instructions.
