johnr: This has been around for about 10+ years


I buy around 1 car a year, none of them come with anything like that :(

(ok I don't buy new cars but even new cars don't offer it)

I have no luck with installing things - everything I get installed fails my expectations so I never modify anything anymore.

So far, Mr Wooller can open two doors to his house, start his motorbike and open his car's doors - all with just a swipe of his hand. The only problem is that he still needs a key to take the fuel cap off his motorbike

Since when were keys a problem that needed to be solved?

because I want the thing that unlocks and starts my car to cost 1000, have a battery that lasts maybe a day and a half and can be very easily damaged.

Wait......

if i were a car engineer, it would not cost $1000, it will be integrated (just like airplay), and a phone is supplementary to the keys, not exclusive.

why have a phone, hmm the battery life of a pone is a good point - never thought of that.
