Navigatoe II

I can see I'll be on this forum quite a bit.
I've got a Navigator II on an '05 LT. There's no manual (bought bike used).
I can only find a pdf for a Navigator III online.
Will that work?? I have no idea how to set this GPS up.
Thanks!

Re: Navigatoe II

I used to have the NAV II on my 05 but have upgraded to a Garmin 2820 so I could have XM & MP3 capabilities. The NAV II is essentially the same as Garmin 2810, If you cant find anything on the Gramin web site I will try and locate my old manuals. The NAV III is essentially the same as Garmin's 2820 without XM or MP3. If memory serves me, the manuals for the 2820 should provide enough basic information for your NAV II. You also need to know what version of Garmin Maps are installed on your GPS. I don't have access to my LT right now so I can't guide you on how to determine. Additionally it would be beneficial - not required - to have the Garmin software installed on your PC so you you can pre-plan your routes. I'm sure others on the forum can weigh in with more accurate info.

If you have a Nav II, you probably have an upgrade coming your way in the not too distant future........those are getting quite dated these days.

Re: Navigatoe II

Garmin no longer provides map updates for the Nav ll also, another reason to consider an aftermarket current gps unit

Re: Navigatoe II

Coming from a guy who still has a NAV I, it's still adequate to do the the job. It is slower than the new ones. It isn't as colorful as new ones. But for basic navigation needs and routing, mine does just fine.

Re: Navigator II

Thanks everyone, for now I'm interested for directions only. Don't really care about the XM, Bluetooth, MP3, whatever else.
I'm used to manually logging in waypoints (N & W co-ordinates) from Google earth on my Garmin E-Trex which was mounted to the handlebars on a Ulysses.
But I don't have a clue how to use the Navigator.

Re: Navigatoe II

Hello Sorchilla, can't find any info on Garmin's site when you enter "2810", is there another name?? Aside from the e-Trex I mentioned, I'm a compltete novice when it comes to GPS.
Thanks again.

Does the 2820 fit on the bmw navigatoe II mount? Is the unit water proof? Thanks

Re: Navigatoe II

The manual for the Nav lll should do you fine. There's very little difference between them, probably none from your point of view going by how you say you'll use it. If you've got the mains lead for it play with it in the house before using it in anger. Its pretty simple once you've got the maps loaded.

I have an 05 with the same set-up. It can be very frustrating at times...... I ended up buying a zumo for nav, (Zumo is very intuitive) and still use the stock Nav for speed, compass, etc.

The speedo on my 05 is way off.... The old NAV has great big numbers showing the MPH.
