How difficult was it to reprogram on a scale of 1-10, 1 being the easy, and 10 being difficult?

Would that cruise control feature that measures the distance of the vehicle in front of you and maintains a certain distance from that vehicle affect the radar detector?

So the parking sensors set it off? The parking sensors should only be enabled while trying to park, not while driving. I know while I worked at BMW, there was a lot of issues with parking sensors going off while driving, it was quite an annoyance.
