Garmin 2820 to Zumo Upgrade Advice

Hello All,

It has been a while.

I have a 2005 LT with a 2820 Garmin. This has the slide power connector. If I upgrade to a Zumo, it has a different power connector. Anyone know of any adapters out there?

The current connector also provides audio into my BMW communication system for XM radio, cell phone and MP3. I would like the same functionality if possible.

New cable comes in the box. Just have to swap cables and plug the GPS in to the aux in port on the front of the voice 2 panel.

Or at least that's how it worked for me.

I get GPS and music, both am/FM and XM radio to the headset.

Why am I here and what day is it??
