It is a wrist band that allows you to leave the keyfob inside the car while you are having fun in the great outdoors

Now driving a 2018MY Mini Countryman Cooper S E All4 PHEV, alongside my 1996 Defender
TDi300. I hope to be back in a new Land Rover in late 2019 or early 2020 but am having a short break
To try something different

Is that meant for the Discovery only, or...?

RE: Retrofitting “activity key” to evoque 2016

Anyone tried that please? I checked with one of the experts and he confirmed that theoretically (he never tried) you need new KVM (HPLA) instead of the FK72 and may be new BCM. The issue could be that all of these new ECUs might not work with the rest of the ECUs installed in the car.

if anyone finds a way to do, i would appreciate if you can tell me about it.

Thé key fob and the security system is manufactured by premo group

I just keep my fob on a carabiner with all my other keys. If I go hiking or for a run, I'll just take the fob and leave the rest behind. But I like the 'coolness' of the activity key...
If you change BCM, it would have to be VIN coded to the car. Unsure of compatibility with the other modules.
