Uh, Brian, please read my material more carefully before you put me
down. I posted about the bad human engineering of the confirmation
circuitry, which causes people to almost always press the button twice;
and whoop it up because they can't see the confirmation from the first
Read the following paragraphs. Again. You quoted them, you know.
The Hyundai that I rented worked this way.
It is too easy to hit by accident.
It's a thoughtless design that annoys other people. Annoying other
people isn't cool, even if your attitude is "What's wrong with you: get
a life." That's insulting, Bryan. It happens that many people are
disturbed by unneccessary noise pollution. Just like you are with
motorcycles. Hey, Bryan: what's wrong with you? I love the sound of
loud-as-hell motorcycles. I'm going to part outside your house and revv
my motorcycle: Vroom, Vroom, Bryan! Deal with it. Get a life!
You're making assumptions and touting them as facts. You have no idea
how often people press their remote buttons twice. Judging by your other
responses, once it too much. Intolerance will get you nowhere.
Current Hyundais do not.
Really? I think I've hit it exactly once in the 15 months I've had the
car and that was in my garage. That's hardly a problem.
No, it annoys you. Do you see anyone else here complaining?
If it gets to the point that I can't stand it, I'll do something about
it, even if it means moving. I've already done something about idiot
kids that drive by with their bass booming. The town I live in has noise
abatement ordinances and the police will enforce them when complaints
are filed. That's the way you deal with such things, not by complaining
about them in a forum.
Maybe it's my particular unit, but the "panic" button sticks.
Also, on the Hyundai remotes, all 3 buttons (lock/unlock/panic) are on
the face in close proximity. I'veset of the panic button by accident
when holding a handful of keys.
The VW Jetta "switchblade" remote has the panic button on the side away
from the other buttons.
New features? How about a programmable button for my garage door?
Can you make it an MP3 player?
