Push to Start & Keyless Entry - Recent tech add-on for your vehicle - available @ Naviplus. - Pa


The smart key and Push To Start feature allows the driver to keep the key fob pocketed when unlocking, locking and starting the vehicle. The key is identified via one of several antennas in the car's bodywork and a radio pulse generator in the key housing. Depending on the system, the vehicle is automatically

unlocked when a button or sensor on the door handle or trunk release is pressed.

Vehicles with a smart key system fitted have a mechanical backup, usually in the form of a spare key blade supplied with the vehicle. Some manufacturers hide the backup lock behind a cover for styling.

Vehicles with a smart key system can disengage the immobilizer and activate the ignition without inserting a key in the ignition, provided the driver has the key inside the car. On most vehicles, this is done by pressing a starter button or twisting an ignition switch.

Yet the cruel fact with this system is that has been implemented to those vehicles from :

  • European Vehicles - Mercedes / BMW / Audi / Range Rover & Jaguar etc.

  • Highest Trim model of certain vehicles - usually after 2007.

Nowadays most of vehicles come with at least Push to Start feature, regardless of stock or an optional accessory, yet the Keyless Entry system that recognizes the signal from remote and unlocks doors isn't something that is available for every new cars.

The perk of Keyless system, that you do not actually need to use your remote to Lock / Unlock the door is such a high merit.

For example, if your hands are full from shopping or holding something heavy, instead of put it down on ground, approach for the key, unlock and lift those again is somewhat draining.

And at some point even that actions won't be ideal to be executed.
