I, today bought a Signature Nav and so far are very pleased with it but i did have a not so good experience at a petrol station. After filling the car i went off to pay, leaving my wife in the car. After a few yards the doors locked and my wife panicked and opened the door setting off the alarms!! Presumably the alarm would have sounded anyway once the passenger compartment sensor realised the space was not empty? Also is there a way to prevent the doors locking if someone is left in the car?

No you cannot prevent the doors locking if you walk away and you have the key with you, you can however do a 3 or 4 second press on the locking  button, you well then hear 4 beeps and this will lock the car but disable the internal sensor prevent it going off when they move around, other then that I do as BobLyn does and leave the key with my wife while I pay for the fill up.   Also when you park up you and everybody leaves the car make  sure the windows are shut or the  alarm will sound in a slightest of breezes  lol

Just disable walkaway locking as I have done, problem fixed. I had no end of problems at first when taking the grandkids out and leaving them in the car - moving around, sometimes opening the door, alarm alarm - so disabled the walkaway. Manually locking and unlocking with the key works from a long distance away too, including from nearby inside buildings if you wish, so it doesn't delay things at all and seeing the folding mirrors fold (my model) is reassuring.

You can still lock it without internal alarm being set if the kids are young or it's a dodgy area.
