Navigator IV - Which version for RT?

Hi all - I just wrote off a K1600GT, that had the Navigator IV in it. It appears that there are two versions of the Nav IV; one with buttons on the side of it, and one without buttons on the side of it. The one for the K bike doesn't have the buttons, as their function is integrated with the bike's electronics.

So the bike is gone, but I still have the Nav IV unit, which is still fully functional. I have a new R1200RT. I am planning on mounting a pair of GPS's on a BMR co-pilot shelf. (Probably a Zumo 550 and this Nav IV, or if the Nav is a no go I'd get a 660). The Nav IV that you get for the RT seems to come with those extra buttons. My question is - which cradle do I get for this buttonless version of the Nav IV? Do I get a Garmin 660 cradle? Is there a cradle for the BMW version that would work? Do those extra buttons matter that I'm missing? Depending on the cradle, can I plug that standard BMW GPS cable from that lead to this version of the Nav IV?

If there are references out there to point me to, I'd be greatly appreciative. At first I thought I was out of luck and would have to eBay this unit off and get a new one, but now I figured I should at least first figure out the particulars.
