Navigator II to Navigator III

I have a Navigator II running on my 2005 LT with the J & M intercom. I want to change to the Navigator III. Will the Navigator III fit the Navigator II mount and wiring? ie is it plug and play?

Re: Navigator II to Navigator III

Same hookup between the two it should work. Don't know about the J&M intercom, but both 2610 and the 2720 work with the same cables for the Baehr intercom.

Re: Navigator II to Navigator III

Thanks. I was looking for someone that switched a Navigator II with the Navigator III and used the BMW mounts and wiring that were set up for the Navigator II. I hoping that it will be a plug and play switch.

Thanks for those links. They answered my question perfectly. I did a search and could not find those links at all. I then went to the GPS forum and went through those threads and did not find those. You are the master. Thanks again

Another option to consider: Although it will require another mount, the BMW Navigator IV is due to be released in the next month or so. It is a BMW-tweaked version of the Garmin Zumo 660 -- having had the NavI, Nav II and Nav III units, I'd skip the Nav III and wait for the Nav IV's bigger screen and additional features.

I considered that but the Nav IV will be $1500 plus with the additional mount and wiring required. The Nav III is selling on EBay for $699 from Daytona BMW and will plug and play.

No problem -- just wanted to make sure you were aware of the option.

Thanks. I wouldn't be changing except Garmin is no longer doing map updates for the Nav II. Hopefully the Nav. III will be good for a few years. When it's obsolete the Nav IV will be $700 and the Nav V or VI will be out.
