However, here's something to keep in mind. Don't keep your cell phone in the same pocket.
A statement released May 23 by Nissan North America indicated that some cell-phone models can interfere with the wireless functionality of the smart key if the phones are within an inch of the chips in the plastic fobs. Although Nissan hasn't received any complaints from customers, they will be introducing a revised I-Key that cannot be interfered with.
Presently, smart keys are offered on a variety of new makes and models, and are known by various names depending on the manufacturer. A list of some of these names include:
- Audi: Advanced Key
- BMW: Comfort Access
- Cadillac: Adaptive Remote Start & Keyless Access
- Infiniti: Infiniti Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition
