BMW Motorrad Navigator V with Advance Cradle
Co-developed by BMW and Garmin International, the Navigator
V is an exclusive BMW Motorrad product that does not have a Garmin consumer
equivalent that can be used on motorcycles factory equipped with GPS preparation
or with the Motorrad exclusive Advance Cradle. BMW Motorrad has taken trip
planning to another level with the Navigator V. Featuring a new larger and
brighter 5" TFT Display (800 x 480 pixels and 65,000 colors) than the previous
generation Navigator IV, the premium-class, Bluetooth-capable GPS navigation
system is a reliable guide both on and off-road, whether traveling by motorcycle
(NOTE: Does not include a bike-specific mounting bracket which
is sold separately.)

This version of the Navigator V is intended for use on any model BMW *, except
If you're outfitting a K1600GT, K1600GTL, 2013-later
R1200GS, 2014-later R1200RT or R1200GS Adventure - these bikes have factory
GPS prep and many functions can be controlled directly using the multi-controller
on the left of the handlebar. If you have one of these motorcycles, you'll
want the Navigator V without a cradle. Find it below under Recommended
Thanks to the four-button mount cradle, the waterproof and
gasoline-resistant housing of the Navigator V can be mounted safely to the
motorcycle and operated even while wearing gloves. The BMW Motorrad Navigator
V is powered by an integrated and exchangeable lithium ion battery which supplies
up to four hours of power. While riding, the battery is charged via the motorcycle's
power system. It can also be charged by computer via mini USB or by using an
optional charging unit (sold separately).

The Navigator V's new trip technology redefines route planning
by allowing users to create longer and more detailed tours with up to 3,750
reference points per trip. The navigational instructions – e.g. via Bluetooth
using the BMW Motorrad communication system – are partially spoken using real
landmarks. For example…instead of saying "turn left in 100 feet" the system
can say: "turn left at the white church."
Map zooming is finely graduated and
offers navigational tools such as a lane assistant and 3D building display
in many cities. Another routing feature is PhotoNavigation: Geo-coded pictures
stored in the device can be clicked on to start navigating towards that location.
The unit features a fully-fledged travel computer, a home function for fast
routing to the home address and beeline off road way point navigation.
A free Garmin Smartphone Link app is available from Google
Play and iOS. After pairing the smartphone with the Navigator V, users can
receive weather and traffic information. The Navigator V is compatible
with the free Garmin Base Camp route planning software, which can
create routes and way points that can be tracked and transferred to the navigation
The Navigator V comes with pre-installed map data for North
America and features lifelong access to map updates (Lifetime Map Updates -
LMU). To better plan routes, users can download the Base Camp tour planning
software free of charge at www.garmin.com or install it directly from the installation
file on the navigation device itself. Memory capacity of the Navigator V can
be expanded from 8 GB up to 64 GB using an additional SD card (not included).
For those days when the motorcycle remains in the garage,
an automobile mounting kit (sold separately, find it below under Recommended
Items) allows the powerful GPS unit to be used as a portable
navigator. A speaker and microphone are integrated into the car kit cradle
to provide audio output as well as well as a hands-free cell phone feature.
* If you need a Navigator V for a bike that has built-in
GPS preparation (such as a K1600GT, K1600GTL or R1200GS W/C), you'll need the
one without the
Advance Cradle. Find it below under Recommended
