IT would be nice to have a key fob with a door opener on it. My garage is detached so sometimes I get out to the garage and have forgotten a key to the door. If my key fob had a garage door opener built in I could control the door too. And just as importantly I wouldn't need to carry a door key all day.
Is this something anybody has seen already?
Is it possible to get an aftermarket car starting/control key fob?

Get a small garage door opener or just program your homelink. ( details in your OM).

How's that (programming homelink) help when he's walking to his detached garage which contains the Subaru inside?

He wants to be able to open the door to get to the car without carrying a separate garage door opener or key to garage door.

Just great, brilliant, yes master. I use both plus have an exterior digital door pad in front of my garage.
Yes they have a device for that.....It called a key to the (side door???)

Number of variables. Most important manufacture, model of your garage door opener.

Someone has probably 'hacked' the Homelink in their Subaru to activate when fob is used to unlock doors.

Not exactly what I think you want to do... From Walmart

BE SURE TO READ THE 'ABOUT THIS ITEM'. Doesn't work with all openers.

thanks to everyone for their replies. The take away: no market for a fob with door opener in it. And, laughing at oneself is not always therapeutic. :)
