    Sorry guys/gals:
    I have to ask this stupid question. I have tried to buy a smart key fob cover to protect my smart key fob either silicone or leather. I have searched eBay. Amazon and google search. I can't find any cover will fit 4 button keyfob. Lexus has a nice leather one for smartkey. I always put my keyfob in my pants pocket with other coins, keys you name it. I hate to scratch my keyfob.
    Does anyone have any keyfob cover to protect smartkey?
    Thanks

    Wish I could help, I'm looking for one too. My last one looked brand new after having it in a silicone cover for its entire life. The cover looked like crap though ;)

    Unfortunately, yes you do need to take the key fob out to open your door

    Actually you can open the drivers door by sticking your hand inside the door handle. There are settings to open all doors at the same time as the drivers door. I can also open all doors by touching the button on the hatch. My fob never comes out of my pocket, except to change pants. ;)

    well I agree that the key fob never has to come out of your pocket but when the key fob is in a Faraday cage then the car ceases to get the signal from the key fob, hence sticking your hand inside the door handle will result in a frustrated owner.:D

    Not exactly what I'm looking for either. I can't believe how few accessories there are for the Prime. I've been trying to find window vent visors. Can only find them for the front, not the back. How weird!

    I just wrap it in a plastic that you use for food. It is thin and works. Best of all, it cost just about nothing.

    I just hang all my keys on multiple dangling rings and have the fob hang out of my pocket. I've been carrying my fobs like this for 17 years. Never lost one or had it scratched.

    It appears Toyota Canada will offer side vent visors for the Prime but we'll have to see when it officially launches in June.

    Wow, that's great. That is not too long to wait. I like leaving the windows open a bit when parking. It's only been one day and I already miss them!

    Funny thing is car will warn you every time you've left your windows open and power it off.

    That has saved me from having soggy seats a few times.

    Yep. Here's the page. You'll have to wait til it arrives nationwide (no date yet) as the June 1 launch date only applies to Quebec. (I assume Ontario is closer to you than Quebec.)

    Edit: It appears to be available for the regular Prius too. Maybe you can order those? The doors should be identical.

    Yes, I am about 30 minutes to Niagara Falls. So Ontario will work well! I tried ordering them through the dealer. They told me they could only get the front. I am surprised they didn't know the regular Prius fit.

    Thank you so much for the info Tideland, we love leaving windows partially open.
