You will have two fobs, the RDX still uses the older keyless key, so you will get the chunky acura fob to along with it.I'm getting the dealer installed remote start on my new RDX, and hope that I won't need to use two fobs.
It's still unclear, because when I ordered my car (in the US) I asked if there are gonna be both key fobs with the remote start capabilities & they actually went into the one car they had in the showroom (V-6 Advance) & found out only 1 fob is with the remote capabilities and the 2nd one was the standard one, so I asked how much would it be for the 2nd fob (so I have 2 with being able to remote start the car) so they said about $600. Now, as I was looking at the add-on remote start, that was for $400 with 2 fobs/remotes. This doesn't make sense that you can buy the remote start with 2 original fobs included for $400 or you'd have to pay for the replacement $600 in already factory installed remote start. I am suspecting (just my opinion), that the Add-On Remote option is just regular remote start you can get installed at any other place that installs remote starts.From the looks of it, the Fob in the accessories section of the website is the same as the Fob with the tech package.

So I would ASSUME that the one fob would be programmed to do all of your other keyless entry and keyless start stuff. Hopefully someone who knows will chime in.

Accept for the following markets:It could be a demand thing. Majority of the Canadian market is likely to opt for remote start due to climate, in the US not so much...

I have been considering adding the remote start feature to my US SH-Tech. Summertime is coming and my company moved during the winter to a new building without and tree or covered parking. The summer sun can get brutal up here and hot leather ---- well you know!.
Anyway I asked my dealership about adding the feature and $$. They said about $550 OTD with 1 fob to preform remote start. A second remote start fob was about $220. The original fobs are still mine and work with the car. If i had added it as an accessory, I would have 2 remote start fob, as standard.
I am going ahead with the addition when 'Cinnamon' goes in for her first service.
If you order it for $286.80 it will come with 2 fobs. All you have to do is to pay for them to install it.the problem is having it coded for your car. So far only Acura has the unit that plugs into the ODB2 port and codes your key fob.
