Will knowing manual gear lead to remote starting?

Wait, what? When did Jeep add the current gear to the display for manual trans? Having had that on my 370Zs and Corvette displays, it would be nice to have it on the Jeep as well.
It appears the current gear display is part of the new voluntary recall that updates the PCM to prevent the manual transmission clutch from over heating.

Here's an interesting read:

Do Automatic Car Starters Work With Stick Shifts?

That's a lot of monitoring to get a remote start to work while mitigating risk. Making sure doors haven't opened since shut down, that windows are up, all mayhem. I don't think today's regulators would allow the owner to be the responsible party for a less advanced system. We already have battery problems enough in the JL, now we're talking about monitoring things while shut down (or checking them when the button is pushed without the engine running, potentially drawing down the battery more after it has sat for an extended period).
The purpose of all of that complicated monitoring is to reliably know that the transmission is in neutral in the absence of any direct gear position monitoring. If you have direct gear position monitoring, the complicated monitoring is not needed.
