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

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.

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.
