Very good write-up and excellent photos, David. This will be helpful to anyone hooking up accessories for the first time. What devices are you powering?

The three wires are numbered 1 through 3. Wire 1, = ground; Wire 2, = direct
12v on and off; Wire 3 12v direct on and delayed by 1 minute switched off.

David
I was told that Wire 2 was the speed pulse for the factory installed GPS or any other GPS that has the speed pulse assist feature. ??

Good job.

Your meter may show it being 12v, but if you wire to it, it won't power your device. It pulses voltage according to speed and is used to inform a GPS device.
I assume that it "informs" BMW-brand navigation systems (e.g., Navigator III).

Do you know if it can be wired to "inform" 3rd party GPS products (e.g., Garmin Zumo)?

Only if the GPS has a speed pulse input line. The top-end built-in factory units usually do, while the all-in-one portable units usually don't.
