Are you sure? I thought it said there's no "iPod out" with the new connectors...

This isn't correct (the part about head unit control functions). Please see the link below in regards to the "iPod Out" capability that we're losing...

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2409737,00.asp

Quoting from the writer,

"Losing the video out functionality itself isn't necessarily a big deal to most people. But what is a big deal is that many manufacturers over the years employed iPod Out as a way to pass iPod audio controls to another device. So that means you won't be able to use the iPhone or iPod controls on many accessories anymore, which is something that's much more common and frustrating. Worse, no one yet knows which ones won't be compatible anymore."

So yes you'll certainly lose head unit control functions.

If it doesn't work at all, color me
Chase... see my post above. You'll definitely lose the iPhone controls on your headunit but the workaround is you can use an older iPod/iTouch in your car that has all your music/videos on it and you'll be fine.

Will you still be able to get audio through that connector? Or is the only way to get audio now through the earbuds jack?

Did you just say that the workaround to the lack of ability in the new device is simply using an old device?

What truly pisses me off is that I was under the assumption that Verizon's iPhone 5 supports both voice and data simultaneously on their LTE network just as other android phones can on Verizon's LTE network.

Unfortunately that is not the case... Verizon's iPhone 5 will behave the same way as the 4/4s. Apparently for Verizon and Sprint, in order to support both voice and data you need dual antennas supporting 2 simultaneous connections. None of the iPhones have this feature, though I've read that the iPhone 6 or 7 might support the feature as per the article below...

well this is frustrating (re: ipod out controls). I suppose the saving grace is my 160gig old school ipod that I still leave in my car as my media player... glad that b*tch plays video as well

Though I lose the ability to stream netflix to my car

Don't know why you're laughing at me... you're welcome to do whatever you want. I simply presented Chase with another more cost effective option... if he has an older iPod or plans on keeping his iPhone 4 despite buying an iPhone 5, put your music/videos on that iPod/iPhone and hook that up to his existing headunit... that way he can continue using his headunit without upgrading to a new one.

'Busa - You're welcome to shell out the extra money to buy a new headunit that supports the iPhone 5 with its new connector.

Me personally... I'll still hook up my iPod Video to my Pioneer headunit (and I leave that iPod in the car all the time), maintain all existing features and have all my music/video in the car. I have no need to hook up my future iPhone 5 to my car.

Don't mind me. I just found it funny that the solution to a lack of features in one device is to use another. I could almost see Apple use it in their marketing.
