Nav II for '03 without comm system?

I'm being told by 2 different dealerships that the BMW Nav II system is not available for my '03 LT without the communcation system installed too.

It sounds odd to me. I know someone who has the Nav II installed on their RT and he doesn't have a comm system....

I looked at SierraBMW site and saw they had 3 different options for the Nav II

K1200LT 1999-2004
K1200LT with prep #394
K1200LT with prep #394 and voice

I called them 2 days ago, left a message and haven't heard back.

Can anyone help fill in the blanks for me?

Thanks,
Scott

Typical arbitrary dealer response...amazing, isn't it? He is somewhat correct, in that you won't have a plug-n-play, integrated setup with audio, etc. that is straight forward. What you can and will have to do, however, is get a pre-'05 installation kit such as can be found here, which includes the mounting braket that goes where your map light is and a wiring harness for the Nav II. A & S Cycles even has everything you need put together in a kit, GPS included for $1078.00. You will have to do some rigging at the end of the wiring harness to tie into a power source, for which the map light circuit is ideal. It's really an easier installation than if you had a Comm System, because since you're not plugging into it the plastic doesn't have to come off. Just the windshield and the instrument cover.
