NBT Evo ID5/ID6 Navigation

So I'm wondering... is it possible to remove the head unit from a wrecked 2017-18 M4 and swap it out with mine so that I can get I drive and the new map version? Would all the plugs be the same?

Plugs would be the same but you need to code unit to your car and FSC codes.
Let me know if you need them.

That sounds like it would be more of a pain then just paying Bimmer world to install a new one

Ordered the retrofit kit from steve@codemybimmer and did the install a few weeks back. It was very straightforward for anyone with a basic level of DIY capability and patience.

Do you have a NBT or NBT EVO currently installed as you give no info.

Appears you have an early model NBT EVO unit and an ATM unit so you would not lose your SOS communications and connected drive.

However, as your VIN is linked to the early model units, you will be unable to use all the benefits of a newer HU.

Maps can be updated in other ways. Much cheaper than changing the HU out. So it's really down to CarPlay.

And I would not spend the money to retrofit anything but the latest NBT EVO Hardware which is version 4.1 of iDrive 6.

However, you will not be able to use a number of the advanced Connected Drive features that are available for later vehicles as your car's VIN/provisions are still tied to that and the BMW MasterDatabase would show the old HU's abilities.

The easiest is to sign into your BMW Connected Drive account and purchase the latest Navigation maps which can be sent OTA to your car. There are other options as well.

As for CarPlay, depending on the HW level in your car, you might have access to iDrive 6 lite with CarPlay - or not. Regardless, iDrive 6 lite has issues with limited memory.

Again, is Car Play alone worth that much to you?

Why are you saying that iDrive 6 lite has issues with memory?
Both HW 3.1 and HW 4.1 has 4GB memory of RAM, and there are NO issues with limited memory. iDrive 5/6 units has same amount of RAM memory.
Maps update could be done by simple using FSC code for your VIN.

The OP actually won't lose any pre-existing functionality if he was to upgrade to ID6 given the model year and factory options according to the VIN. OTA Map updates will still work provided that the vehicle still subscribed and same goes for RTTI, BMW Online services etc.

We do get a lot of folks who will have us remotely setup and flash the HU in their vehicle and this is something we can help you with if you source your own hardware.

90% of the used units out there don't have the necessary firmware to have fullscreen apple carplay enabled and will need an update.
