Jewfei Brought in my car today to get the GPS recalibrated but instead they ordered a new module. Not too sure why they're doing that, have a feeling it will still need to be recalibrated each time I change tires though.

TKG26 Summers back on 15" to 18" and gps is fubar again. :(

Jewfei went to the dealer today with the notes you provided. Looks like everything is working so far, thanks! Just annoying that i guess i'll have to do this everytime i switch my tires. I might try the removing the fuse thing first though, see if that works.

It's not stupid.

The tire diameter / circumference, which is part of the vehicle configuration data, is used by several modules to accurately calculate speed and distance.

The GPS module would not be altered but rather the vehicle configuration data (BCM module) is changed.
