If there's a way to switch this off on a U.S. model, I haven't found it. Makes me crazy. Putting the car cover on - the car probably locks and unlocks 5 times. Dust-bustering it - same thing. Walking by it - once or twice.

I really don't mind having to touch the door handle and if there were an option to turn off the "detect my presence" feature I would turn it off!

Anyone find this option on a U.S. car?

Very strange, still trying to understand the logic.
