I'll make that change in idrive. My last vehicle and my wife's current each has comfort access. I've gotten so used to leaving the key in my pocket it seems like a "bother" to take it out to unlock car! Come a long way from actually putting the key in the lock and turning it to open - I think I'm getting lazy!!

I don't take the key out of my pocket, I know the button by feel (LOL).

As others have stated, sometimes, yes... In my garage for example.

Sorry, I just don't understand making a big deal about pressing the Stop button twice -- then just don't worry about the whole radio and locking thing. I just press 2x and don't give it a 2nd thought (no pun intended ).
