I was told it won't be long. On a side note, the car is much more enjoyable without the feature. I don't see myself using it again. It is a long slooooow procedure for the service dept, however.
I had mine reprogrammed before I picked up the car. However I don't have satellite radio. I'd like to see them do the same thing for the Eco-pro mode. Whenever I get in the car I have to re-enable it. I use both features a lot since I drive in LA traffic 90% of the drive.
