    For people who leave all their spare keys in their vehicle, it seems like it'd be worth it, though... :lol:

    They can get in your vehicle AND drive off with it if you lose your keys too. :lol:

    Except you can set a password for your phone. :) But I think it's pretty cool. It would just have to do a lot more than handle starting the vehicle and lock/unlock the doors for that price. I think a normal long range remote would do for most folks. And no annual fee.
