Head Unit Upgrade

I am trying to establish the facts after seeing some conflicting info. I currently have an NBT head unit with ID4 in my 2014 F33. I have the 8.8 screen and the touch IDrive controller. I am thinking about upgrading to an NBT Evo with either ID5/ID6 and coding it to my VIN.
My main query is, will my Connected Drive account still operate on the upgraded unit so I can get my paid for map updates and access my service history etc.

Not without other changes in equipment and coding....plus playing some tricks.
