BMW Motorrad Navigator V without Advance Cradle
The Navigator V was Co-developed by BMW and Garmin International and
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 or automobile.
(NOTE: Does not include a bike-specific mounting bracket which is sold separately.)

This version of the Navigator V (without the cradle) is intended
for use on bikes that have factory GPS preparation such as 2014-later K1600GT,
K1600GTL, R1200RT, R1200GS Adventure or (water-cooled) 2013-later R1200GS.*
NOTE: If you are purchasing it for a 2011-2013 K1600GT or GTL, you'll need
a new instrument cover with a larger cut-out because of Navigator V's bigger
display. This new cover is standard as of model year 2014 and will work with
both Navigator IV and Navigator V. Find it below under Recommended
While riding, the battery is charged via the motorcycle's
on-board power system. It can also be charged by computer via mini USB or by
using an optional charging unit (sold separately, find it below under Recommended
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.

built-in GPS preparation, you'll need the one with the
