Mounting Nav V on vintage bikes

I purchased my Nav V with the four button mount to allow me to mount Nav V on a vintage bike when not riding a new RT.
Vintage bike is converted to 12v neg ground.
There are two leads off the 4 button mount.
Are there instructions on the wiring posted?
The existing two lead brown/white has what looks like an plug adapter/endpoint/plug that would need to be do you connect wires to this particular plug type?

Re: Mounting Nav V on vintage bikes

I have the Nav V on my GTLE and a Garmin 590LM on my '07 LT. Unfortunately, Nav V bracket is incompatible with the 590 and vise versa. On my 590, I routed its power and ground wires to a combination switched/unswitched Centech AP2 fuse block and didn't have to worry about finding a stock BMW plug. If I were in your shoes, I would cut off the existing plug and replace/splice in some new plugs or install a switched fuse block. Hope this helps!
