Wow really?Yeah, me too! I had a 2-way on my '85 Mercury that I moved to my '97 Pontiac. It worked 2 blocks away and beeped when the signal was received.
Mine seems to work from pretty far away. I have been starting my car from my desk which is on the 2nd floor of the building... My car is usually about 150ft or more away from where I sit and it also has to go through a couple of walls... Works every time for me.
