I only wonder as I live in Texas, and I will never have to worry about that! Sea-level to 400 ft!
All FI systems have a MAP sensor..... it happens no matter where you are and you won't notice.. The '07's had an issue with altitude, which was resolved by replacing the ECU with one having revised software. Not sure if it was a recall or a TSB.

For those on Macintosh the degree symbol is typed option-shift-8. On iOS hold the 0 (zero) for a popup with the degree symbol.

Yeah, this Boomer is still fascinated with EFI, and ECUs...

I hearken back to my youth when I was constantly tweaking my carb, on my '73 Charger, and constantly messing with the choke...

You see, Kids, back in the day, motors had this thing called a "choke." It would change the air fuel mixture, when it was cold, so that the car would start and run! It was a thermo-mechanical arm that was attached to the exhaust manifold and the butterfly on the carb! LOL

And for we "Windows" folks, if you hold down the left "ALT" key and using the number pad on the right of your keyboard, and type 248, you will get, ""

Yeah, Boomer stuff...
