I was about to say that this wouldn't make any sense because the 665 is now ~3 years old, so why would BMW base their new GPS off a 3 year old Garmin product, unless Garmin has shut off all R&D to motorcycle GPS's and has no intention of introducing a replacement to the 665 any time soon.

Then I realized that the GPS cradle on the new WC GS is still the Nav IV/Zumo 660. I can't imagine that BMW would re-engineer a GPS cradle as extensively as they did for the WC GS if they knew something completely different was on the horizon... so perhaps the Nav V will indeed be the same form factor as the Nav IV with only minor incremental improvements.
