Question Trying to determine which head unit I have (CIC or NBT)

I've received conflicting information from 2 different sources wanting me to buy their FSC/Map updates on which head unit my 2013 328i has.

Attached are 2 pics that may help.

he last 7 of my VIN is: F353200
Map Region: North America.

Thanks in advance for your assistance/input.

Well, there is a 3rd choice...

You have neither CIC nor NBT as you have HU_CHAMP2.

OMG this is getting very confusing.. :-) So I have HU_Champ2 WITH combox?

I ordered a 10.25 inch Android screen with NTB cables on Aliexpress.
https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/IPS-a...5c214c4dkCH7tn
Does this fit without problems?

I pulled out the unit and it looks like I have the 6pin LVDS (NBT) cables.
My screen shows the CIC look screen.. Very confusing and I am freaking out..

You have HU_CHAMP2 for sure. And since you have Navigation Option, you should also have Combox.

I have no idea about aftermarket Chinese solutions.
