Dub show was basically saying the battery drains the same because the key fob is constantly emitting a signal to verify whether it is within proximity to function.

The doesn’t automatically switch on when you are in proximity. Both the car and the key are emitting a signal and when that signal overlaps they work as intended.

Whether you keep the key fob 5ft away or 500ft away it will still emit a signal to ensure it is within range or not.

The “new” key you bought was probably new but the battery was old because it wasn’t programmed for x amount of time, but still emitting a signal in the dillerman locker.

I know. I was just answering this post from Gberg and wanted to know if the key was close enough to the car to make the proximity unlock active:

The halogens on the Mk6 were really good, maybe the best halogens out there, but these are definitely next level. Possibly better than the LEDs in the H, which are also pretty excellent. And Rudy, I see what you mean about the car having turning lights in the clusters. :like: Also discovered that the car has the leaving home and coming home features. So much :megusta: .

On a :dislike: note, I'm already getting a notice in the MFD that my new key needs the battery replaced. :rage:
Easy enough fix. Battery is a few bucks I think and you can change it yourself. The :dillerman: charged me something ridiculous when I traded in my Mk7. The other key was apparently dead and they didn't tell me until after. :rolleyes:

Also, do you store your keys close to the car? It could be battery drain from the proximity key.

Just realized today that I don't have a compass in the MFD. :rage: :|
I wonder if it's something that can be activated with something like Carista?

I have no idea how it works, but I do know that I was not blessed with the homing pigeon gene that a lot of people have and sometimes get turned around in the curvier, non-grid streets in the greater leafy suburban paradise area. And if I know where, say, North is, then I know there is a major surface street that goes near my :haus: . Also it tends to help on long road trips to just know that we're heading in the general right direction when it's cloudy, or night time, etc. Just a couple examples...
