Take another look at the rear end (by the trunk button). There is a small hole for attaching a lanyard.remember, the key fob does not have a key ring. Nor can you place one on it. There is no hole to do so. So, you can’t attach your house key to it. So, it is basically a little Hot Wheels/Matchbox car in your pocket.
Actually, Amazon sells a MY key fob holder that protects the fob nicely and tethers it to a key ring. It seems to be made of aluminum, doesnt look too bad, and is under $20.00. As I approach my car, I just push the roof of the fob twice and never have to wonder if the phone app has gone to sleep.I bought the key fob because I was used to having a key all my life. But, after 5 months...I have never used the key Fob. And I don’t want to, either. I just walk-up to my car and pull on the door handle. My phone works every time.

You can enable the pin to drive feature and then don't tell your grandson the pin.Does anyone know if there is a card key option that will unlock the doors but not allow the car to be driven (Not quite a valet key)?
I would like this functionality for my grandson when we go skiing. Be able to go back to the car to get something or warm up, but not risk him being able to drive it.
I hate bulky keys personally, no need for a fob. Phone as key is great, card as a backup in my wallet. App has had issues a couple times but mostly just annoying. I’ve toured with the idea of pairing the car with an NFC ring then I just need to wave my hand on the car.
The FOB can also do something that you can't do with your phone. Open the front trunk. Yes you could unlock your phone, open the app, and find the front trunk button, and then click confirm when it says are you sure. But that takes forever - it's easier to just open the door and touch the button on the screen. If you have the fob, all you have to do is click the frunk button.
