Anyone try the activity key? Have a neighbor take us out today and he couldn’t wait to show us the activity key.... but he’s not a big reader of manuals: etc. He spent about 2 minutes waving, pressing and holding the band over and on the R on the tailgate before the car locked. Is that how it’s suppose to work? Anyone know? He then realized he left his phone in the car and couldn’t get it open. So we just left it.

Why not read the manual or watch the video? Did they press the tailgate release button prior to pressing key against R?



ACTIVITY KEY
The activity key is a security wrist strap devised to support activities, e.g., swimming, when the smart key would be obtrusive or difficult to keep secure. The activity key is waterproof to a depth of 18 m and is shockproof.
While the activity key is worn on the wrist, the smart key can remain inside the vehicle. When the activity key is activated, the vehicle locks, the alarm system arms, and any smart key remaining inside the vehicle is disabled.

NOTES
Locking preference settings are retained when locking or unlocking the vehicle using the activity key, e.g., single or multi-point entry.

Activity key locking:
The ignition must be switched off. After exiting the vehicle and closing the last open door, or the tailgate, the antenna for the activity key activates for 30 seconds. The antenna is located behind the letter R for the Rover of the tailgate's Range Rover badge. The user has this time to place the activity key wrist strap against the letter R. When the security pairing is complete, the vehicle locks and arms the alarm system. The hazard warning lights flash to confirm. If power-fold mirrors are enabled, they fold in.

NOTES
If a locking attempt is unsuccessful, an audible alert is given. Check that all of the doors and the tailgate are closed, and that the ignition is switched off.

NOTES
If the tailgate of a locked vehicle is opened using the smart key or the gesture tailgate feature, an audible alert may sound when re-closing the tailgate. Should this occur, fully unlock the vehicle before attempting to close the tailgate.

NOTES
When the vehicle is locked with the activity key, any valid smart key remaining inside the vehicle is disabled. Any valid smart key outside the vehicle remains enabled.


Activity key unlocking
:
When returning to the vehicle, press the tailgate release button to reactivate the antenna. The antenna activates for 30 seconds, allowing the user to place the activity key wrist strap against the letter R. When the antenna recognizes the activity key, the vehicle unlocks and disarms the alarm system. The hazard warning lights flash to confirm. If the power-fold mirrors are enabled, they unfold.

NOTES
When the vehicle is unlocked with the activity key, any valid smart key inside the vehicle re-enables.

NOTES
Only the activity key initially used to lock the vehicle can re-enable a disabled smart key(s).

Manuals are, and always have been, free to view on the LRNA website... for all modern models of Land Rovers. They are a great source for research.

I used my activity key yesterday and it worked fine. I had watched a review video of the Velar where the reviewer demonstrated use of the key which was helpful. But I also read the manual as I did not want to take a chance that I would not be able to get back into the vehicle after working out at the gym. It was great to not have the heavy key in my pocket.

How does this work if you leave your car with a parking attendant or valet? Based on the instructions, if you do not touch the R, then it won't activate and the key fob will remain active, correct?
