Default Upgrade RES130 to RHR or RHB, Question?

Hey folks, Im going to be upgrading the radio in my 2012 Ram 1500 bighorn to either a 730N/RHR or a 430N/RHB from a basic RES130 without uconnect but with the steering wheel controls.

At the moment, I am not planning on adding the mic, camera or lockpick, Those are next. My sole goal at the moment is to upgrade the radio and get NAV. I do plan on adding those later.

I have a few questions for those kind souls who have blazed the path before me.

I have seen that I need a security code? Where do I get this?

I understand the 730N has the Uconnect built in and the 430N needs the module as a separate purchase, Is my understanding correct?

Are there any gotcha's that I haven't covered, Both when sourcing a used radio and when installing it into my truck?

Any help you can give me would be awesome.

for some information, check out
http://www.oemautopartsco.com/
fill in the vehicle stuff
it will bring up what works in your vehicle, click on the radios that you are considering, it covers it pretty well

you may want to look elsewhere for better prices, but it is the most informative site that i know of

most of all, which ever radio you choose, it has to have the HIGH SPEED Bus
unless you go aftermarket

Simple plug and play. My unit came from a ram and did not need any codes or dealer flash. Purchased mic from online oempartsinc and installed it in overhead console. Without lock pick keyboard is locked out on nav while in motion. You will need mic so that voice activation can be used to enter addresses or search while in motion without lockpic
