I have the Titanium with dealer remote start. I have no problems with the keyless functions. However, as I noted in my original post, once in the car after a remote start, I can find no way to avoid an engine stop and restart before departing. I have not received a call back from my dealer who promised to look for a "workaround".

I don't expect this is a major tragedy (since I don't expect to use it that often) but its just lame for it to work this way having bought the top of the line setup. As with every technology company now, things are rushed out before they are thought through . There is no such thing as a thorough beta test phase anymore.
