GPS Conversion Cable for 2009 K1200LT

Hey guys, just got a new 2009 K1200LT. I am looking for a cable to convert the factory cables for the GPS (a Garmin Zumo I think) to my Garmin Nuvi 750. I would like to avoid any rewiring if possible, just plug and play. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: GPS Conversion Cable for 2009 K1200LT

I experienced the same thing with my 2009 LT. The cord with the flat face is for something I know nothing about. The round power cord works on Garmin GP's,s. I use a 386c and it's perfect. Someday I'll find out what the flat-faced cord is for.

Re: GPS Conversion Cable for 2009 K1200LT

Hi,

My first post, as I finally "know" the answer to something!

The "Flat" plug connects to the BMW Nav III+ cradle. At least it does on my 2009 LT.

I have been a "lurker" reading the GREAT information and banter on this site.

Thank you,

Does anyone have the pinout for that cable? Both ends. Looking to make my own custom cable but can't unless I have the pinout.

A hundred miles is a good start for an afternoon's ride.
If you were not planning on riding it, why did you buy it?

This is not the clearest of pictures, but I'm sure you can get the info needed for a conversion cable.

You are a champ. Just what I was looking for. Now I can build a test connection for an iPhone input.

Re: GPS Conversion Cable for 2009 K1200LT

I replaced the obsolete Nav III unit on my '07 LT with a Garmin 590LM with tire pressure monitoring sensors. I disconnected the existing plugs for the Nav III unit under the stingray, and reinstalled the 590 using the existing stingray mount, with 4 - 1/2 inch nylon spacers between the mount and the 4 screw mounting pattern on the new unit's cradle. For power, I hooked it up through a Centech AP-2 fuse block and it works great. I'll sell you my Garmin unit for $7,500 and throw in the LT at no additional cost! Good luck with your alternative installation of the 550...
