Just to confirm, with keyless entry disabled there is no need for a faraday pouch, right??

yes, as far as I know


weirdly, since I had the 18c update I can only disable keyless entry if the engine is running whilst doing the button presses...

Thanks Pcheaven. Yeah, I had to have the ignition on for it to work on mine. Also the door needed to be fully open not just ajar.

What do you guys mean by the headlight button? The button on the end of the headlight stalk or the rotary button to change the headlight settings?

Like I wrote before
Keep it simple, this works 100% and can hold more car keys then an average household needs to protect

And most important, it’s fail save. You can stand with the closed box infront of your Velar keys inside and no keyless entry will work. Lift the box and the Velar opens.
This will never wear off, can be used for centuries 😂

it's the headlight button on the car key. There are 4 buttons:
1st closes the car
2nd opens the car
3rd is the headlight button
and 4th opens the tailgate

That's fine when your car is parked at home. The big issue for me is when the relay devices are inconspicuous enough, and powerful enough that the thieves will unlock your car while you're walking across a car park. Personally I see keyless entry as a bit of a gimmick. I use the fob to lock the car, so I'm quite happy to also use it to unlock the car. I also have an issue with it when I'm trying to unlock the car with the wristband, but happen to also have a key in my pocket. I end up having to put my key on the floor 10m from the car while I activate the wristband transceiver with the boot open - much to the bemusement of onlookers.

I've disabled keyless entry as per the OP and sleep much better as a consequence.

Pointless feature in my eyes. If you have to press a button to unlock/lock, may as well be the one in your pocket.

How big is the chance, that someone with this kinda equipment is stalking you on the go, close enough to get your signal without getting noticed? If you feel this is likely, I’m glad you found your solution.
