    Los Angeles area, I took it to a local shop and it took all day but they were nice enough to give me a free rental. You can email the company and they can tell you where authorized installers are nearby.
    Yeah it kills me that this feature has been nonexistent in all the models.

    May not happen often but, what happens if you bring it in for service. When I had it in the my Acura you just pushed the brake pedal and the button. Considering it for my truck.

    Yeah, the funny thing is they list GM and Toyota dealers on the website as authorized dealers but when I called them they knew nothing about this. It's still kind of new. I think it came out last year or this year. Make sure the place you take it to has done the install before.

    For service if you're still under warranty you shouldn't have any problems. This doesn't really affect anything major on the vehicle. The system actually still uses the key to start so they keep your original key, this just eliminates putting the key in the ignition.

    So is that just a cover over the key hole, it doesn't get removed? That's really good to know.

    Yes it's a cover over the ignition and they removed the part where you insert the key.

    At first I didn't see what the big deal was on keyless entry, but now I have another vehicle where you walk right up, open the door and push to go. Love it. This system will be considered..... But still waiting to new esky and may just wait for that new beast!

    The middle button has two functions: remote start and open/close lift gate. It depends if the the vehicle is locked or unlocked.

    It's been a while now, how is it? Any frustrations? I'm about to put in a simular system once I find a good installer in Jacksonville.
