The old navII is heading for the boneyard unless someone wants it (free).
My question: Why can't I cut off the plugs that plugged into the back of the NavII and rewire a cigarette receptacle to each one?
. If you can think of an easy alternative, please advise but using the existing wiring is my 1st choice.
I'm replacing with the 7" wide Magellan Roadmate 1700LM automotive type for better visability. Voice commands would be good but not necessary.
.

Thanks for helping out the "old man".

Hi John,
I have a new to me NAV ll on a 05 LT I just purchased. I want to put my Sirius radio, and have Nav on my bike with a scala Q3 Blue tooth intercom will the NAV ll be capable to get this done? I have no idea right now what to do short of spending a grand to make this happen. I thought you may have some experience here thanks for any advice you can give. I'd like to use what I have if possible and onlt but the Scala Q 3
Thanks
Dan

Hi Dan. I am by no means an expert on GPS, but the Nav II is simply a BMW badged Garmin StreetPilot 2610 and the manual shows a 2004 Copyright, so this was before Bluetooth had really caught on for Motorcycle Comms. I would tell you that you will need a wired Comm System to use the 2610, unless you can get a dongle connected that might connect to the Scala system. Just in case you don't have a manual for the GPS the Garmin 2610 Manual can be downloaded from the Web if you just Google it! Or I could email it to you, but the file is too large to attach here. Just PM me if this would help.
The biggest difference between it and the Nav II was the BMW Dealer info that was loaded onto the Nav II.

Perhaps other Nav II owners may chime in with suggestions as well?

Good Luck,
John
