That's odd, as the minute I drive away from the key, I get a warning. Icon of a key with a diagonal "NO" line thru it in the middle of the dash. Maybe a ding too, although it's been a while and I'm...

I don't think the point (to the designers) is whether it's close or far from the physical knob. It's that you don't have to remove your hand from the wheel.

It doesn't turn it off/on, technically it mutes it. And if you were playing something (as versus radio), it pauses it.

But it's not off. You can still change stations, change tracks, etc.
