    Finding keyless ignition fob

    Is there a way of finding the proximity of a misplaced keyless ignition fob? Maybe in the connect app or some third-party app or hardware? Many thanks

    Oh dear, always keep mine in my jacket pocket. Be interested to see if there is.

    have you checked the seat lock? This is the usual place.

    and the reason why I have had a "dumb" key cut to fit the seat lock on my R1200RS. Electronic fob stays in my jacket

    If you push the bike around everywhere, while trying to start it - when you get close enough - Vroom!  :028:

    got the link from UKGSer and ordered from https://www.keysinthepost.com/products/

    they don't list any modern BMWs but I emailed them a photo of the key and they were able to make one using a JMA blank http://www.jmakeys.co.uk/ - cost £16

    any key cutter who stocks JMA blanks should be able to make one - I think it is labelled a Ducati blank in Timpsons in the UK

    I keep the JMA dumb key on a ring with my disclock key, Givi Monokey and house key. No electronics to worry about so can be kept in an outside pocket that isn't waterproof. Plus I have cheap spares if they are lost.

    What range should the key be within for that to work?

    Needs to be within about 1 metre of the fuel tank or bike wont start
