My Premium didn't come with keyless entry nor an activity key. So I looked at adding the AK as a way of getting keyless entry.
I am having it installed at my dealer on Thursday. Will update after the install. :)
Install went well. Took about 2 hours.
As I was hoping for, I can now unlock and lock my car without getting the fob out of my pocket:D

The loaner they gave me was a 2018 25T with 600 miles on it. It drove well, but I think it was not quite as quick during acceleration as my 20D. Another thing I discovered was that not all 2018's have retractable side mirrors, unlike the 2017's !!!
They had not adjusted the tire pressures prior to putting it into service. When I checked they were all around 50psi. It rode like a tank (pretty rough).

Hm, I would think the 25t is quicker 0-60 but the diesel has a buttload more of torque so I am sure thats what you feel in the 20d. While my car is in for service I get a loaner and this is the first time I got a Jaguar and first time F-pace. Its a 17 white prestige with vision pack. The seats are SO much more comfortable... I was shocked.

OK, I'll bite. Are you comparing the vented seats vs non-vented? Or is there a difference in comfort between the 10-way and 14-way adjustable seats no matter how they are covered?

Im not sure... I just know the non-sport seats in the prestige I have right now feel much softer and way more comfortable than the ones in my S. I forgot that the loaner didn't have vented seats, so I am not sure why they feel softer but they definitely are.

hello activity keys users, quick question probably a dumb one. I was wondering if i can use two activity keys at the same time ( one for me and one for the wife) would they synchronize both or are they going to override each other? Thank you.

I think the activity keys are passive rfid chips. Interesting question if you can purchase two programmed to same vehicle. They would probably have to have identical rfid numbers and unlikely that is available but curiously await what you find out from a dealer.

you're probably right, they should have same number or same chip i would assume too. since once the activity key is activated it disable the keyfob and over ride it, so I would think that the antena and signal linked to my activity key would be unique.

I was going to buy one but since the remote start app can lock your Jag with the key in it, I'm good without it...
I think some people also enjoy that the key fob is disabled when you use the activity key to lock the doors. While the app does not. Also, the activity key is waterproof, while my phone is not :)
If those don't concern you, then agree with saving some $$ on this.

Bout 1100$ module 485 but what I did I got best buy to install for 85 with geeksquad full year installation
could you provide more detail on this. my understanding is that there is reprogramming of existing fob system involved in installing activity key system after purchase. not sure how best buy would have done this so curious to know more, also what model f-pace?

I’ve just purchased the kit to install this, which I’ll do myself. Looks quite easy and the Jaguar manual estimates 0.4hr installation time including programming. I will need Jaguar (or someone with the Pathfinder Software/SDD) to activate the module but that should be it. Hopefully they don’t murder me with a stupid price.
I’ll let you know how I go.

touch it directly to the J in Jaguar on rear hatch to lock. to unlock, press the hatch open button the touch to j in jaguar. i’ve found has to be pretty direct contact between activity key wristband and the J. still love the activity key, use it all the time skiing and biking.
