    I know some folks said this would be nice to have in the past, but did you all know that it already exists? Am I the last person to find this out?

    Just discovered it a couple of days ago. Somewhere in the UI, we were able to link driver profiles to specific keyfobs. I haven't personally tested it, but based on what my wife said, sounds like it automatically switches to the linked profile when the corresponding keyfob is used (not entirely sure if it happens as soon as keyfob is detected or if you have to press a keyfob button; I would assume the former, but would have to test to be sure).

    It's automatic, as I discovered, quickly sitting in the car after grabbing the wife's keyfob and finding myself in rather cramped quarters!

    I discovered it last week as well. Very nice! Was this an 8.0 / 8.1 thing? It's great to have the car adjusting the seats and wheel for me before I'm in the car.
