Re: GPS for K1200LT
I have had the Zumo 550 and now the 665 fit on the GPS mount using the supplied cradle. The problem is the BMW power/audio connector will not work on a Garmin. With the 550 it is simply solved by clipping the BMW connector off, isolating the power wires and putting a new plug for the Zumo 550. The 660/665 is a little more problematic as the wiring bundle (power, audio, mic & sat antenna) are integrated into the mount. To do it cleanly and safely the bundle needs to be routed under the gas tank, which requires removal of both forward side panels and the stingray. I had a local independent BMW mechanic route the bundle for me. If you have the time and inclination you can do it yourself. I had him route it so the wires come out under the rear part of the tank and under the seat. From here I connected the power to a fuse block and the audio to my Starcom which lives under the seat.
Regards & Ride Safe!
