You may unlock the car by tapping your phone to the door handle once everything is set up. You may place your phone on the wireless charging station and start the car by pressing the start button. It's the same method to turn it off and lock the door in reverse.

Aside from that, this also works even if your smartphone's battery is dead, the key will stay active for up to 24 hours. On the manufacturer's website, there's also a way to deactivate the virtual key if in case you lose your phone.
