My iPhone XR has a “Do not disturb while driving” much like our Garmin GPS unit. I use it. We have satellite radio but very seldom change the station or volume. Takes discipline but well worth the effort. The only real distraction in our rig is the constant chatter from somewhere in my truck. [emoticon]

can I "assume" that those who consider the "greatly enlarged" key fob to be unacceptable, dumped their large smart phone for a nice small flip phone?

My phone goes into a jacket pocket and keys go in my pants packet. Even if the phone were smaller, I would not be sitting on it.

I seldom lock my truck and I find with the keyless fob I often throw the fob on the console and end up leaving the truck unlocked with the fob in it.

Switches do fail sometimes. I have replaced a few in the last 45 years. The last one on my Blazer a while back. Cost me less than 4.00 and I fixed it in my driveway with simple hand tools.

I really doubt such a fix will be posible with these new switches.

IT IS GOING TO BE ANOTHER HUGE PROFIT CENTER FOR THE DEALERS.

Not an issue if you always are under warranty.
