Gps/ Comm. System

I Have A 07 Lt. Wired For A Navigator 3. The Garmin Streetpilot 2820 Looks Identical To The Nav 3. Is It? If So Will It Be Compatable With The Bmw Advanced Mount Cradle. The 2820 Has Blue Tooth Technology. How Does That Effect The Bmw Voice Intercom 11? What Is The Simplest Solution To Combine Gps And Intercom? The 2820 Is Half The Price Of The Nav 3. Would Appreciate Your Advice. Thanks

The 2820 will work, but the 4 buttons on the left of BMW's cradle will not.

In addition to the comment from Joe, the 2820 also supports XM radio if you add the pricey Garmin GXM-30 xmradio/antenna and the 2820 also has the ability to play up to 1.5gb or so of mp3 music.

You may also want to look around for a Garmin 2730 (yes, it's discountinued). But it may cost even less than the 2820. The tradeoff is that the 2730 doesn't support BlueTooth.
