Re: 05 LT NAV2 to NAV4 Install Was Plug and Play!
My 05 LT came with the Comm II system with the newer radio and bMW NAVII from the dealer. It has the round selection dial on the unit. The NAVIV has a different cradle and connection wires then my old NAVII which is the same for a NAVIII however, the NAVIV cradle mounts directly to the Stingray in the Same fashion as the II or III. When I removed the Stingray (just detached it but did not need to disconnect anything but just lifteed and turned it over on iTS side) I was able to disconnect the old NAVII cable and pull it out thru theSingray GPS mount. I then fed the new cable in and then one by one disconnected the three old ends of the cable and plugged in the new NAVIV cable. It was completely plug and play. Have not yet played sound thru the system since bike is still apart and but the power function works perfectly with keyed powere or if key is turned off the GPS runs on internal battery. Will try some Music later today after I load some to the GPS as well will try the GPS simulation mode. Not sure if this mode is just visual or includes sound. I do not have Bluetooth but wired J&M headsets so this is another variable.
