Navigator IV

I bought an 09LT with the Navigator IV mount already installed on bike. Can you only get the unit through a dealer???

Re: Navigator IV

The K1600 thread discusses the Garmin 660 in reference to the K1600. The Garmin 660 is the same GPS without BMW's add-on interface. There might be an interface to the bikes controls on the BMW model GPS. (I'm learning this too)

Wonder if the Motorcycle mount for the 660 will fit on BMW's GPS SPIII Mt?

Re: Navigator IV

The 660 / 665 / BMW IV use a different mount than the 2820 / BMW III .

I had the 2820 and it did mount in the BMW III mount but the BMW III mount buttons did not work on the 2820. I then purchased a BMW III and it does work with the mount and buttons but NO MP3 player. VERY dissapointed with that. It is the same unit but no MP3 player is silly.

I am currently considering the 660/665 BMW IV since I really want an MP3 player.

I do not really use the BMW buttons so I am leaning towards the 660 and since the price diff of 150+ for the 665 and the only realy benefit is the XM SAT which also costs another 15/mo makes the 665 a little expensive.
