F20 LCI upgrade to ID5/6

I have an f20 LCI 116d production date 02.2017 so I think it was the last production month with the old equipment and then they switch to newer (LCI2?).

It came with bmw professional radio and no navigation, however I cannot confirm part number at the moment as I am still waiting for the ENET cable to arrive. I would like to upgrade to an 8.8" screen and to head unit that supports navigation and carplay. After consulting with I found out that the unit called HEAD UNIT, BASIC WITH GPS2 supports wifi and preparation for apple carplay.

1. Can I install this part? Or only the HIGH2 (harman evo units?) offer that option?

2. I remember that when I bought the car in 2017 an option to connect and obtain information thru mobile network was available but not anymore. Does this mean that I have an ATM unit? Does this complicate things? Can I simply forget about it and just plug a fakra gps antenna and leave inside the HU area?

3. Does the iDrive controller need to be upgraded as well for the nav mapping or is this retrofit optional?

4. Providing that I will use repair fsc codes bought online, do I care if the replacement HU is newer or older than mine?

Thanks a lot in advance for your time!
