Upgrading from 130S RES to RHR... HELP!

Ok, I have read about 10 different things so far and my head is spinning.

1. Half the sites I read say any 2011+ Sirius antenna will also deliver GPS coordinates. Others say I have to buy the dual antenna. Anyone know this for sure?

2. Jumpers...
I need Mopar #82211666 Microphone Harness to get my mirror Uconnect to work with this radio. This one seems pretty clear. The old radio had an external unit that controlled it, the new one has an internal, this jumper bypasses the old and feeds right into the new... got it.
Also says I need #68068278AA USB Jumper Cable to connect the USB in the center console to the radio. This looks like a mini USB to mini USB cable with locking ends on it, cant i just plug in one from radio shack that doesn't lock in?

3. What about programming my VIN? Why do I need to do this and how much are they going to charge me?

Am I missing anything?

Thanks for any help!

I have a 2013, and have done the upgrade. Your existing antenna should give you GPS.

Yes you will need to jumper if you want to use voice command and the USB port in the center console. Mine works with my Samsung S5 and and an iPhone.

I got my mine from oemautoparts. The VIN on the radio was blank, after a few minutes my VIN was in the head unit.

Hope that helps
