separate key fob, separate key/fob

Please refer to your other question for more info. Again I suggest something in the style of the above.

In this case, you have キーレス別体, which suggests that the key is not built into the key fob. That is your key fob is separate to the key.

At the link below you can find the following tantalizing information!

"Testing shows Americans prefer the fob separate from the ignition key. But Europeans prefer the fob right on the key."

My first hit on google for "separate key fob" lead to a site for sex toys...please be assured that there are other hits further down for Honda and Volkswagen!!!
