Question about Garmin 665LM

Can a Garmin 665LM be hard wired (no bluetooth) and integrated into a BMW communications II system? I have a '09 LT with a Motorrad Navigator III GPS and will buy the 665 if it can be used with my BMW comms and J&M hard wired audio for the rider/passenger. I am interested in the 665 because I want satellite radio. I'm looking to use the hard wired audio through the J&M system for the helmets so I won't be using bluetooth. I hope I've explained this correctly; I'm tech challenged so if there is someone who knows this issue well, has 10 minutes free, please send me a PM and I'd appreciate covering all this in a phone conversation. Thank you!

Re: Question about Garmin 665LM

Mine is hooked through the aux port on the front of the voice 2. Just make sure you use a 90 degree plug so it clears the cover.

Why am I here and what day is it??

Re: Question about Garmin 665LM

Regarding the above posting, did you replace a Nav III with the 665 and if so, were you able to place the 665 in the cradle that held the Nav III? Also, if you're using the 665 for Sirius-XM, are you using an FM transmitter? BTW: What comm system do you have on the LT?

Re: Question about Garmin 665LM

I got my bike new and it did not have a nav unit on it. I put the cradle for the 665 right on the mount and had the dealer wire it in. To the best of my knowledge the 665 will not fit the cradle for the Nav III.

I am using the XM radio in the 665 and it is hardwired right in to the aux port on the front of the Voice II unit in the radio compartment on the bike.

The comm unit is the Voice II unit and the helmets are wired to the bike. Tried wireless before and just like the sound better this way. And no batteries to charge up at the end of the day.
