I'm using it everyday since the first day and I love this feature!

It works remarkably well if I lift the foot high enough for the kick retract action.

It works great for me, but my Boot-Do is strong. I get a kick (pun intended) of showing my friends how to do it, and it's never taken them more than two swings when I show them how.

Works 1/10 times for me. I even know exactly where the sensor is (laid on the floor and looked up at it).

Literally, 1 out of 10 times. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Tried fast kicking, slower, move of a wave motion.. Really quite annoyed I wasted my cash on it tbh!

Mine has not failed once since I figured this out

Will try this..


PS, when it DOES work, it literally takes 3-4 full seconds to open the boot. So you have to kinda as well. Meh.

Is there a software update I can get to fix this? I cannot get this to work consistently and I tried every method above. I did find the dead center swift in and out kick to work but then after I open the trunk with the kick, close it to try to again, for practice, it won't open until 10 of the same kicks later. It's pretty darn frustrating. Was at Costco the other day carrying loads of things and thought what a great feature to use when my hands were full. I did swift in and out kick and just ended up looking like a tool and had to eventually drop my groceries to free up my hand to press the trunk button.

I read somewhere in another forum that a software update fixes this?? Not sure tho.

It works about 80% of the time. Seems like there is a delayed response... kind of like your computer processing information under heavy load - applications open but they take long time to respond...
