Question C3-RS730 LCD on 2000 Pontiac Grand Am

So my friend is selling me this for my car, he had a 2006 Mitsubishi Galant that his wife totaled and he took it out and is selling it for $50. I wanted to know if it was compatible with my car.

This is the link to it: C3-RS730 LCD - 2-Way Communications - AutoPage

and here is the manual
http://www.autopageusa.com/resources...30install1.pdf

while reading the manual I noticed a bullet that says, "Some automatic transmission vehicles mainly older GM vehicles with a purple starter wire have a mechanical type park safety switch instead of electrical safety switch. The mechanical type does not interrupt the starter circuit when the transmission is in any gear and does not offer the 100% level of safety required for remote starting purposes. Therefore, our system should never be installed on any vehicle that uses a mechanical type park safety switch.

I tried searching online but I can't find anything. and If I do have the mechanical safety switch, can I convert it?

Shouldn't matter. All that's saying is if you leave it in drive the remote start will still work and the car will move forward. Assuming you put your car in park like any normal person (which you would have to do to take the key out) this is a nonissue.
