I'm glad to hear that Aussie's 309 controller works when plugged in. That's encouraging. Of course, if that is the case, I would wonder why my car's software wasn't updated last week when I had my 15k service, but I suppose that is neither here nor there at this point.

What I feel is an interesting question though is if Non US-Spec cars were built w/ CDMA TCUs in the first place. Isn't Australia, like Europe and the rest of the world, GSM based?

With any luck I should be able to pick my car up sometime today (Sat July 18) so I'll report back if my dealership had any luck with the new controller re-code.
