For the G20 do the keys now have security to prevent theft by stealing the key signal?

Settings
Doors and locks
Comfort access
- Unlock when approaching car
- Lock when walking away from car

Sorry, but the above is from memory so it's paraphrased. The lock and unlock options under Comfort access are checkboxes so you can select one or both or none. Under doors and locks select Comfort Access by touch or with controller

One strange thing about it is that unlock does not work if you locked The car with your fob . In other words, you must lock with comfort access to unlock with comfort access.

Sigh... Pretty sure I don't have these option in my region settings.

The keys now have an in built motion sensor that switches off the signal if the key is not moved. Takes about two minutes of inactivity I believe.
