Wink Navigator II

I believe the screen is about shot and wonder what would be a good upgrade. I'd like to just remove the Nav II and put in the new upgrade with no modifications. It presently looks like a stock BMW fit. It seems to require a special allen head type wrench to get it off. Any ideas of where I can obtain one of these?
Thanks

Re: Navigator II

The screen has a protective film over it for protection. It can be removed and replaced. You can by new protective film at radio shack.

Re: Navigator II

Thanks but I have the bite for a newer unit. My problem is getting the old one off without breaking anything. I assume that the special tool has to be purchased through BMW so I'll be giving them a call. Thanks again

Re: Navigator II

You can take the Nav III (and I believe the Nav II is exactly the same) out of the cradle by loosening the screw on the top of the cradle with a T10 bit. See the attached picture, showing my old Nav III GPS, it's mount and the T10 bit at the bottom. The screw you need to loosen is on the top of the cradle. Once loosened, gently lift the piece up with a couple of fingers from the back to expose the red bar, and the GPS unit will pop right out, allowing access to the 4 stainless steel screws holding the cradle to the stingray mount.

I replaced my Nav III a few months back with a Garmin 590LM. Although it's cradle will fit nicely onto the LT's existing base on the stingray, it takes a little adapting for a nice clean installation.

You don't need any additional parts from BMW to do this, and can get the T10 bit from any hardware store.

Re: Navigator II

I have heard that the Street Pilot 2820 is the same as the Navigator II, so I assume that the original bike wiring would be a match for it?
