garmin question

I'm considering the Garmin 2730 or 2820. Not sure from descriptions if the difference in features is worth going to the 2820. I hve an '03 LT with BMW Navigator mounted with the BMW mount. Will these units fit that original mount? Thanks.

I have a 2730 mounted to the BMW mount, no issues what so ever. I use the the BME harness as well with our issues works fine.

Re: garmin question

I am content with the 2730. Just updated the software to Ver 7.2 and the GMX30 to update 2.30. Will install 2009 Map Update (cost $70 +ship) later this week.
