how to know if my Smart got the transmision reprogram

I have just bought a Smart 2008 in Philadelphia, is comming by sea (7 weeks), from Philadelphia to Delaware, then to Guatemala by sea and after that by land in a container to my country El Salvador), it will be the third Smart in El Salvador,
after I read several post about reprograming the transmission for the 2008 model to the 09, I want to know is something wrong will happend to the car if I do not perform that reprogram, because in Central America (Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica there are no Smart dealers, then no sofware, no spare part in other words nothing, I will have to import everything from the States.
