What are my GPS options?

Just bought an 03 LT. The factory installed GPS will not work without batteries in it. Is this normal, or is there a problem in the power cable?

If I decide to replace it, is the 2820 my only option to fit in the factory mount?

I know the the unit on the bike can't be updated, how old is the 2820?

I don't want to spend $800 for something already out of date.

Re: What are my GPS options?

The 2820 is for sure discontinued but I don't think this has to leave you out in the cold or with an ugly mount.

Look at this recent thread post # 20 for an example of what can be done: http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthre...ghlight=ghetto
