Re: Phone icon, main screen
The Phone icon on Nav V is so you can pair your phone with the Bike's Comm System. This (with BMW Comm System at least) goes through the Nav V, as an integrated piece of the Entertainment System (iPod, XM, Radio, etc.).
If my iPhone is not turned on, the Phone on the Main Menu of the Nav V is greyed out.
I am guessing that you are correct - your bike doesn't have the entertainment system (I assume, since no speakers), therefore, no "Phone".
FWIW, the BMW Comm System (in my C3) is paired with the bike (for radio, iPod music, XM), and separately paired with the Nav V for Phone, and navigation prompts. Phone is paired ONLY to the Nav V. Maybe if you got Bluetooth for the helmet (and by extension, the phone), the Phone icon can appear and be used if paired to the Nav V.
