Hell, don't you think it should be called Darwin's radar device? When
it detects someone walking behind the car, a sharp, piercing alarm
goes off and the driver unintentionally stomps on the gas pedal. The
car speeds in reverse and removes the idiot behind the car from the
human gene pool.

Now that is all mean! The device should detect the idiot. Then it
triggers your deck lid to open and out pops a telescoping 4 fingered
hand that places a Dunces hat on the offender and another telescoping
feature with a boot to kick him across the parking lot.
Add to that the optional sound effects heard on cartoons 50 years ago.
The sounds from Roadrunner and Wiley Coyote come to mind.
If you were in a parking lot at night you would swear you were at the
drive in theater.

A key fob that only has to be in your pocket or purse. Typically they
work just like keyless entry, the interior lights up when you get near
the vehicle and the door unlocks when you touch the door handle, you
relock by touching another unique spot on the handle, get in and push a
button to start the engine. None of this works with out the key fob
being very close by. Additionally if you leave the key fob in the
vehicle you cannot lock the doors from out side the vehicle. Drop the
key fob inside the trunk and you can't close the deck lid.
Additionally the key fob has the usual buttons to use if you choose to
do all of this manually or want to double check that you locked the
vehicle with out walking all the way back to the parking spot. AND the
key fob has an internal emergency key that will pull out and unlock the
The biggest learning curve to this keyless ignition and unlock option is
to remember to not pull your keys out.
I'd bet it would be loss leader type of product that you get for cheap
or nothing. It brings you into someplace where they can suggest some
other purchase or repair.
And eventually, you get used to getting this product for free and
then 'voilà', suddenly they start charging for it.
Solved the Firestone problem back in the 70's.
Simply refused to accept delivery of a new company car if it had
Firestone tires on it.
Basically, everybody in the district did the same thing.
Can't comment on Bridgestone.

Unfortunately, I've seen first hand the devastation that caused, and the
memory is enough to give me involuntarily shudders to this day.
Back when I'd just returned from the service and was totally fed up with
the world, and basically being as worthless as possible, a friend, who
worked with me shoeing horses, was leaving his home to meet me at a
stables and backed over and killed his 3 year old son playing in the
driveway, an only child. A whole lot more than that precious little boy
died that morning.
