i've noticed when my iphone and key fob are in the same pocket, i cant lock/unlock the car via touching the door handles. I'm assuming the car is confused by the radio signal. Anyone else experiencing this?

Yes, It seems that way to me to.

Although, sometimes it works OK, but sometimes I have to remove the phone or the key fob to lock/unlock.

And it looks like it's a bigger issue when locking then unlocking the car.

Speaking of cupholders....WHY did they put the 12v outlet between the cupholders? This is just asking for trouble.

Unfortunately, somewhere along the line in engineering (and yes I am an engineer), the elegant solution became more important than the practical layout.
