Been down there many times. For $20/year it's a great deal.

Default Opening the gates with car window closed

Thanks to all knowledgeable commentators for confirming we can, in fact, use the cards thru the window. BUT - I wanted to reply to those who started this thread, so worried about opening a window in the rain.
If you were returning to TV from anywhere on a rainy day, you were already out in the rain in order to get from the restaurant/church/shop/bar to your car. You got a lot wetter doing that than rolling down your window.

How about gates with no card reader?

I am surprised that the smartphones don't have an app yet.

I have SUV and have no trouble opening most gates without opening my window. The height of the car doesn't matter, if you get the card next to the pad.

Sounds like a good way to secure your gate card against theft. Just leave it right out in the open.

I'm the original poster. We picked up our new SUV yesterday and I'm very happy to report I am able to open the gate with the driver window closed.

It's about not allowing the hot air into the vehicle when driving in this Florida heat. It is about not letting in the cold air when driving in the cold weather. Let me be honest, it is also about not getting me and the inside of my vehicle wet when it is raining.
