GM's high-tech key fob gives drivers real remote control

GM announces a multipurpose high-tech key fob

Autoblog

Cadillac Escalade owners will soon have an extra piece of tech bling with which to wow their homies. According to USA Today, GM is planning to introduce a new remote-control key fob next April that will allow Escalade drivers to change their cars' radio-station settings, check the fuel-tank level and tire pressure, and remind themselves whether they locked the doors or not. The device will feature a built-in LCD display and is designed to operate at four-to-six times the distance of other remote access systems, according to GM. The technofob will be offered on the Escalade and a range of other GM SUVs and pickups as a $150 option--a drop in the bucket if you've just dropped $66,000 on a fully loaded Caddy.
