The PO of my Bike had a Garmin GPS mount, and a cable on the Bike,... no GPS with the bike though.. I assume the cable was for the GPS connection. I purchased a Garmin 2720 that will fit the mount and would like to use the existing cable to connect the GPS, is anyone familiar with this connector will it have power and Audio both (my hope). and if so the pin out of it, I imagine I'll have to cut off the plug on the end to wire in the GPS cable I purchased with the 2720. I'm up for cutting and experimenting with the old volt meter, but any fore knowledge I can get here is a big plus.



As always I appreciate any thoughts.

I believe that this was for a BMW Navigator model with the BMW navigator cradle... or a zumo cable

Looks like an old Street Pilot III connector. I'm sure someone can chime in with the correct pin-out for it. Or just get rid of it and connect the harness you say you have for the 2720. I vote for the latter as the easiest method.

Thanks, I was hoping this would give me a way to get the GPS sound into the Stereo system so the GPS prompts would be heard over the music. I may have to go with a wired solution to my headset though instead of hearing it over the speakers.

It's the power cable for the BMW Nav1 or Street pilot 111. There is a second cable for audio and a third for the BMW Garmin antenna (not the stick antenna).
