How to sync key flob settings?

Used my spare key flob the other day, all the settings differ from my primary key. Is there a way to sync the config, so it is the same as primary?

Not sure of anything outside of dealer assistance to actually sync the two. However, couldnt you just insert the spare key and make the necessary changes then they would be set for that key as well? Dont mean that to be a smarta$$ response, it just made sense to me.

no sync options. Just insert your spare key and resave all your preferences.

no need to tread lightly on your response. It's the only reasonable and easiest resolution...

Yes of course I could do that manually. Just thought if it was possible to carry the settings over, I'd do it the easy way.
