New Owner Questions

Just got my K1200 LT, it is raining outside so I am familiarizing myself with the BMW NAV III. The bike is used, so the Nav unit is registered to the previous owner. How do I change this? I also have a Mac computer and tried to register and download upgrades/anything else. No Joy!!! Is this all related?

Re: New Owner Questions

It is very likely a compatibility problem with the mac. I know at one time, Garmin did not have a mac version of their software. You might want to contact them directly on how to change your registration. Have read good things regarding their customer support.

Re: New Owner Questions

I recently went through the same thing. You need to go to the Garmin site and create an account and then register your Nav III unit with Garmin. After that its just a matter of checking for any firmware upgrades and downloading them to your unit.

Good luck
