I'm still trying to figure out what you guys use the key FOB for? I leave my truck unlocked 90% of the time, and I remote start it from my phone....
Key FOB requires me to pull out my keys and press one button, one press unlocks my door, two presses unlocks both doors. Key now in my hand to start truck. Pretty basic.
Using phone, I pull out phone, input my phone password, then tap the button for myGMC
app. Tap the icon for Key Fob
. Tap the function I want: Unlock, start engine, flush toilet, etc. Now I input my 4 digit password for the App. Remove keys from pocket and insert into ignition.
Seems like one method is much simpler than the other.
To start truck remotely, I pull out my key fob, I press lock button, press and hold the start button, wait for truck to start. Now I can unlock doors with the key fob in my hands, have key in hand to insert and turn in ignition to drive truck.
Again, the App is nice, it is wonderful when I want to remotely lock/unlock truck. I have only locked keys in a vehicle 2-3 times in life, but I am even more unlikely to lock my phone in truck, extremely unlikely to lock phone & keys in truck. In any event, I probably have only used the Phone App on average 1-2 times per month over life of vehicle. Mostly when I couldn't remember if I locked truck and had walked off or where I was working on something and had my phone but keys were in the house.
