I'm not sure what the typical range of the keycards is! Some of the posts seem to indicate that you have to be virtually touching the car, others say that the card will work whilst the car is parked outside the house. I've been basing it on the distance that I have to move before the car realises the keycard has moved away. The car will still open by pulling on drivers door handle twice even if card is 20 yards further away.

On further investigation, handsfree only operates intermittently - even after changing battery in keycard. Deadlocking by using keycard seems to work fine. Can't try second card as car was only supplied with one!
