With the new 2014 BMW X5 model, the German company redesigned even the key fob, to allow you to use more of your car’s functions from a distance, similar to a remote control. To help you out and make sure you know everything your key fob can do, this little introduction video was put together.
First of all, in case you didn’t know, your new key fob will store personalized information about:
- Locking preferences
- Mirror positions
- Memory buttons
- Seat positions
- Climate control
- Navigation views
- Multimedia settings
The unlock button will, of course, unlock your door and turn on the interior lamps. Furthermore, pressing it for more than one second will open the windows and moonroof of your car. The tailgate can be opened by continuously pressing the designated button on the fob for one second.
The key fob also has a mechanical key hidden inside it. To detach the mechanical key from the fob, press the button on the side and then pull it free. This key can then be used to lock the glovebox compartment or the driver’s door, in case of battery failure. For more info, check the video below.
