BMW to Garmin GPS

What garmin will work in the cradle that came with the 2002 LTE. I think its a street pilot 1?, not sure. It is the GSP cradle that came with the LTE package that year. Any suggestions on a good replacement?

Re: BMW to Garmin GPS

Hi Tom,

I had a BMW Navigator on my 05 when I got it from the previous owner. Decided to update to the Garmin 2820 as it had far more to offer and was cheaper than the new Navigator 3.

It fits in the BMW mount and the power supply connects straight up. The 4 dedicated buttons on the BMW mount will not work though. However with the touch screen on the 2820 being very easy to use I have not found this a problem. It was easier to go with the existing mount and power than take it all off and pay out for a new one just to lose the 4 buttons.

As an aside the bluetooth on the 2820 matches perfectly with my iphone and the autocom system.
