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

GM announces a multipurpose high-tech key fob


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.
