Help with pre-wired GPS mount
Yesterday I bought a new LT. Just before the ignition is a standard four-hole mounting plate, for GPS, There are two cables, one with a small circular fitting for the GPS, about 1/4 inch across. I have a Garmin 276c, and it's power plug is the same but larger .I ve no idea what model the plug is intended to fit.Hopefully it is a Zumo 550. Can anybody help?
The second wire ends with a 1" x 1/2 flat piece that has approximately ten staggered teeth lying flat. I am completely baffled. Again, I hope it's for the XM part of a 550. Can anybody help with that?
Oh, both cables split from a single line.
I spoke at length with the BMW dealership about it, but they pretty much blew me off. Wanted me to buy the branded unit.
"What a long strange trip it's been."jg
