Question GPS swap 2002 to 2005 help

Hi everyone

Looking for some help please

Want to swap over a Garmin street pilot 2720 GPS from my 2002 K1200LT to my new to me 2005 K1200LT
I am fairly mechanically inclined but electrical is not my forte. I was going to try and figure out by doing a side by side, but they are not just a little different in layout it seems

I do not have the install instructions for the Garmin GPS or wiring diagrams for the 2005 LT, GPS was installed in 2002 LT by dealer in 2002

Has any one done this, Do I need a adapter harness to plug into the bike? I see there is a whole series of wires that are just dead ended hanging out of the radio in the 2005, with no wiring diagrams not possible to figure out.

Does any one have wiring diagrams of 2005 LT radio communications systems, I have both sting rays off at this point
Or install instructions for GARMIN 2720 OR 2730 GPS

Want to end up with it all hard wired working through intercom system

The 2005 has BMW GPS and Voice 2

Thx in advance
