Goodman Comfortnet - by WR ??

I have a new Goodman GMVM96 heater installed using my original thermostat. I am interested in adding a communicating thermostat in make use of the modulating gas valve and humidity control. This is my dealers first 96% installation, has it working fine, and feels that it is a waste of money.

The White Rogers web site says that they supply this equipment to Goodman (and Rheem). There is a WR retro kit, # 1F98EZ-1421 available for $220 that includes both the wall unit and a board to be installed in the heater. The WR pictures and specs look identical to the Goodman components.

Is my logic correct ?? Thank you.

The new WR thermostat should communicate with the excising board in the heater and I would just keep the 2nd heater board as a spare....
