Anyone running a NAV 5 on an LT

Just purchased a 2016 R1200GSAW with a BMS NAV5 GPS.
Considering to move it to my LT when not riding the GS. Looking to
see if anyone here has experience running a NAV5 on an LT and any
pros or cons, issues with the set up and location.

I have a NUVI 590LM on the LT but having to manage one GPS would be
preferable since the 590LM has no place on the GS - besides selling
the 590 would provide additional funds for other farkles . . .

I run the 590LM on my LT, but think you could probably get (buy) the cradle for a Nav V and mount it in place of the 590 cradle to enable you to switch the Nav V between bikes.

I just saw this thread while responding to another. I see it is six months old, but I am running a Nav V on my LT and it works great. Contact me if you haven't yet made a move and still have interest in Nav V on an LT.
