Is anyone else shocked at the range of the keyfob?

Seems I can unlock/lock/start/etc from a block away. Literally

:cheers:

I've noticed mine has quite a bit more range then my Impala had. I wonder if GM didn't design it that way because of the remote start. When my son got his Pontiac with remote start I have seen him start his from a half a block away. It would be interesting to use a range finder and see just how far the remote would work with line of sight.

My 2000 Saturn LS1 and my old 2003 VUE both worked maybe 15 ft at the most. The Nox has a really long distance

I would have been happy with 15 feet on our 2003 Vue, seemed you need to be right on top of it to open. I opened the Nox from probably 300+ feet last night just to see if it would open. Had good line of site, but still pretty impressive. Of course with the size of the fob there may be a nuclear reactor in there powering the thing ;D

Not shocked, but it is one thng I don't like about it. I key my keys in my pocket and can't cout the number of times I have locked/unlocked/opened hatch/sounded the alarm inadvertently. Darn thing :)

Yep..I've done the same thing. Kind of a poor fob design. The buttons on my Solstice fob are slightly recessed to avoid this. I carry that fob in my pocket all the time..and it has never accidentally set anything off.
