BMW New 7-Series Keyfob, Will Be Expensive To Replace
BMW has not only launched an all new 7 Series luxury sedan, but also a new high technology keyfob that comes with this tech filled sedan. The new BMW 7 Series is the world’s first series-produced car that owners will be able to maneuver in or out of forward-parking spaces or garages without anyone at the wheel. Almost like working a remote control toy car.
The optional Remote Control Parking feature allows drivers to access tight parking spaces with ease. The driver initiates the car’s progress forwards into or in reverse out of a space using the likewise newly developed BMW Display Key. While standing outside the car. Just like what James Bond did with his E38 BMW 7-Series using his Ericsson phone in the movie ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’ a few years ago.
The vehicle moves forward when entering the space, while the exit maneuver is performed in reverse. BMW warns that while parking is taking place, the driver must watch for any obstacles and bring the process to a stop if any issues arise.
Remote Control Parking can only be activated when the vehicle is positioned centrally in front of the selected parking space. Also, the distance the vehicle is allowed to travel in driverless mode when entering and leaving the parking space is limited to 1.5 times the length of the vehicle.
This new keyfob must be kept carefully, because if you lose it or drop and damage it, the replacement costs would be probably be more expensive than buying a used E34 BMW.
