Anyone have a NavIII to sell

I bought a NavIII off a member here about 2 years ago but it only worked intermittently since arrival so I would like to take another shot at getting one that works like they are supposed to. Does anyone have one laying around?

Re: Anyone have a NavIII to sell

I have two but that is why they are lying around. Screen touch failures and one lost the GPS receiver. Tried transplanting the screen covers but they donor failed also. No support from Garmin so good luck finding one that still works.

I am curious why you want a III rather than a V? Is cost the main reason? The III no longer holds much of the database and has other issues. I switched to a V two years ago and never looked back.

Re: Anyone have a NavIII to sell

I agree with John and Voyager. I replaced the Nav III originally installed on my 07LT with a Garmin 590LM and never looked back. I donated the Nav III at the 2014 CCR auction and they only got about $25 for it. The old system is no longer supported and memory capacity is extremely limited. Better to seek out a newer system...

Re: Anyone have a NavIII to sell

I guess it is more for a placeholder because I am planning on selling the LT in the next year. How hard is it to adapt the Nav V ?

Re: Anyone have a NavIII to sell

Don't know about the Nav V that is on my GTLE, but the 590LM was relatively easy if you're somewhat handy with tools. I used the existing Nav III mounting bracket with some spacers and four longer screws, enlarged the wiring opening on the bracket to enable the 590LM's larger wiring loom to snake through it and routed the wiring under the tupperware above the tank back to a Centech AP-2 fuse block.

Re: Anyone have a NavIII to sell

I have a Navi III that I just took off my bike. I would sell it if you need it. What is it worth?

The Nav V is completely plug n play. Unplug two Nav III connectors and plug in the two Nav V connectors. Install the Nav V cradle on the factory GPS mount and you are in business. Audio through the VOICE II intercom just like the Nav III. The only hard part is writing the check.
