  • Resident's card screwing up my Passmo

    Usually, putting my Passmo in the general vicinity of the ticket gates was enough to get the gates to open. This week however, I had to put my car right on the sensor, and even move it around a bit. I assumed that my Passmo was getting old, as it's pretty beat up, so I got them to exchange it for a new Passmo for me - which didn't solve the problem. I then realized that my Resident's Card was directly behind my Passmo, meaning that when I was swiping the card, having an additional RFID chip in the scannable area was screwing up the sensor. Moving the card further back in the stack solved the problem. So if anyone else is having, or in the future has this problem, there's your solution.

    This is a real issue. Although I have not experienced with a Passmo card, I notice that when I have two cards with embedded RDF chips together, I have the same problem. True, you can alleviate the problem with "card order" in your wallet or passbook, but as these cards become more common, it will become a bigger issue. As it is, I have one such card with me all the time that I use several times a day. When I get my new resident card, the RF chip will be immediately and permanently disabled so I don't have to worry about "card order".

          so instead of putting your residence card in your WALLET since you dont take it out anyway unless you are being pulled over by the keystones, which happens....eh.... NEVER. Why stubbornly keep it together with your pasmo?

            I'm not sure where you keep your Passmo, but I keep my registration card in my wallet. I also keep another with a RDF chip. I *need* the chip in the other device but not in my residence card (when I get it). So *not* disabling the unnecessary chip in the residence card would simply be asking for trouble. Every day. Several times each day.

            Anyway, my point is that with more and more cards getting these embedded chips, there are going to be consequences (and potential business opportunities) as a result.

              oh I agree, so lets hope companies look at pitapa who now uses the card like a paying system for vending machines and in some shops. One card for everything, that would be fantastic. ahhhhh one can only dream.

                How are you planning to disable the RF chip?
