Hello everyone,

A few questions...

1) When the car is equipped with Professional Navigation (609) it has the MGU headunit.
But what headunit does the car have if it is equipped with Business Navigation (606)?

2) Does ENTRYNAV use ATM?

3) Is ENTRY the lower version of NBT?
And CHAMP2 the lower version of CIC?

4) Do earlier NBT-Evo have MOST and the ones manufactured more recently not have it?

5) Are all cars manufactured with ID5 and ID6, even the ones with no remote services at all (not even emergency call, because my country did not have them at that time), not have an GPS antenna on the NBT-Evo and have an ATM module just for the GPS location?

6) By knowing the NBT-Evo hardware version, such as HW00.00 , can you know if the headunit has:
- a WLAN antenna for Apple CarPlay
- a GPS antenna for navigation without an ATM
- more RAM so it can be upgraded from ID4 to ID6 and run smoothly

7) How can I know if a screen is:
- APIX1 9V (compatible from CIC up to NBT)
- APIX2 12V no touchscreen (for NBT-Evo and later)
- APIX2 12V with touchscreen (for NBT-Evo and later)
