Just letting folks know. I think all the pickup's still have a compatible key. Even my Nissan Altima has a key.inside the fob. Don't know if it has a Bolt to match.

It certainly would be good for those with a key. My cargo trailer, which holds a large expense in tools has 6 different keys for the various locks.

The fob fire my F150 has a wee key hidden in it, but would be a pain to regularly use.

I doubt "most" vehicles have them, but RF proximity unlock/start systems certainly are available in the package-of-toys version of most models, and standard in many.

Not just pickups - I think the physical key is a normal feature of these systems, but it certainly can be awkward to get out of the fob. It might be worth considering this system even if one had to get a separate conventional key... it would still be one key for several locks, and it would work in the tug even though it would normally not be used that way.

You can check BOLT's supported vehicles page; it says that a 2015 Altima uses the Nissan key which they support.
