    These odd Bluetooth connections appeared on my iPhone after I paired with my M3.

    Anyone else see anything like this?

    Yes. I have no idea what they are. Assuming they are the keys.

    Those are the BLE transceivers on the driver (…36D) and passenger side (not pictured), trunk (…36R), and center console (…36C). They're used to determine how far from the car your phone is to authenticate the phone for unlock/drive.

    Oh that’s interesting. So why is there a drivers and a center. But no passenger?

    SIgnal might be blocked by something. It's just not in that particular screenshot.

    Good get. Thanks!

    Interesting that the iPhone does not let us inspect those, and therefore we can not ask the phone to "forget" them. (Not that I want to do that knowing what they are.)
