Those are the correct part #'s for the install.
As for the iPod controls, I'm not sure where your info came from for iPod control. You will be able to control the iPod as well as browse for artists, albums, podcast etc using the radio as well as voice control commands.
For the flashing the vehicle for Uconnect, I would speak with several dealerships, let them know that you know the flashing takes less than 1/2 hr. Others have done this and found dealers to flash for around $50.

I can get the uconnect online for about 1/2 the dealers price. I figure I need 82212159 and the iPod unit 82212160. I was hoping to get this answered from the dealer but to get these 2 parts is over $200 more than online.
From what I can see the iPod connect does not allow you to control the iPod. Is this true? A stupid concept since the connection wire will be in the glove compartment. Are you suppose to reach over into the glove compartment to switch songs? I was hoping to ask dealer if there was a iPod connection that will work with the radio controls. It seems there are some but not sure about for my radio/vehicle. I at least hope if there is no way to control iPod it at least scrolls the song titles. If not it would work no different than my current setup of aux input and lighter port for power.
I figure I can install it myself must be a simple plug n play thing. But I still need to pay dealer about $100 to flash the connect.
