08+ Radio in 05WK

I know you use the lockpick to put a MYGIG in an 05, but what about a non-MYGIG 08+ radio like an RES. Is the lockpick still needed? Is it plug and play?

Actually is a lockpick mandatory to install a MYGIG in an 05, or is a cheaper adapter without all the perks available? I have no need for NAV so I was looking at the REN. With that I wouldn't need all the lockpick perks like address in motion, DVD in motion (don't care), or camera unlocks (don't plan on installing anyway).

Basically I'm trying to find a way to add uconnect to my car without buying that mirror and kit. (MD just went hands-free a few months ago) I figure if I can upgrade the radio at the same time then great, but spending $300 on a lockpick when I would only be using it as an adapter isn't justifiable.

So again, is a lockpick or anything required to upgrade my 2005 to either the RES or REN (MYGIG)? (I understand I'll need a new bezel)

Thanks everbody!

you still need the lockpick and you will have to make a bezel

Well that's pretty miserable. Looks like it's aftermarket or nothing.
