Default Strange fob with my car

My D4 came with the usual 2 keys plus plastic key ... but it also came with what I can only describe as two giant SD cards in similar packages to SD cards, they have one single button on and a constant flashing light (red led)

The car was fitted with a cobra tracking system from factory.. but no idea what the hell the little fobs are.. and no sadly they are not Auxiliary heating

I have no idea how to take a picture and upload it's a tad beyond my skills

Any ideas?

Thanks
Ian

Well yes read the manual indeed (wording meant in jest it's a well-known saying ), but I don't have a clue what's involved as I've not got a factory fit Cobra alarm and never have had so haven't a clue what the fobs are for or how you use them.
