You're going to lose the assist function only if you swap out for a combox. If you swap out the head CIC navi unit only, you will still have assist.

Once you remove your existing TCU in the vehicle and replaces it with a combox, BMW assist will no longer work. You can regain BMW Assist feature by having BMW assist change the TCU number they have on their end with your COMBOX's number.

On another note, if you opt for the BMW internet/Live service, you will lose the assist function even if BMW changed the TCU number for you.
