Better/Newer Homelink transmitter?

I am starting to look for a Homelink transmitter to install into my E46 and am finding units with two different part numbers on them and was wondering if the folks here know the differences between the two.

Sellers on ebay with both part numbers say they support rolling security codes

Any help would be appreciated. I did a search but didn't find the answer.

The newer one has the lit buttons. The older ones do not. If the eBay sale has actual pictures of the unit, it will be very easy to spot.
