I have noticed on the new Gen 6 Camry, the beeping when you unlock the car has a very fast continuous beep (when you press UNLOCK twice), the pattern goes:

BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP

I thought this was just a Gen 6 thing and that the keyless entry was upgraded but then I noticed it on several of the Gen 5 Camry recently, it had the same pattern.

On my 2006 LE, the pattern when you press UNLOCK twice goes:

BEEP BEEP *pause* BEEP BEEP

Does anyone know why this is?

gen6>gen5
WRONG!

Gen 5 > Gen 6, 6.5

Does it really matter though? i mean...does it really affect your life that bad that it beeps a different way?

It was just a general question and I thought it would be appropriate to ask because I was curious. This was not about as to which generation is better, I already stated that I have seen (or heard) several of the Gen 5 Camry beep in that same pattern.

Could it possibly have to do with the enhanced VIP security system that was installed in the car? Because I know I do not have that in mine.

And for the record, it shouldn't matter as to which generation is better. The fact is that a Camry is a Camry, no matter what generation or body style. They have been the best selling and longest lasting cars in America for over 10 years, and I am damn proud to own one. :thumbsup:
