So what is the Montana connection you might ask? Well, it appears that BMW thinks enough of the Montana that they have re-branded it as the new BMW Adventure to join the BMW Navigator IV (zumo 660). Here is a short excerpt from the latest BMW Motorrad Newletter:
"Another new partner is Garmin, which is providing a world premiere for the GS Trophy: the brand new BMW Motorrad Adventure navigation system, which is based on the Garmin Montana. We are using the very first units of the Adventure. It will be available next year."
Cheers,
That's really interesting. I wonder if the BMW version will be different in any way, aside from having the roundel on it?
