As I've said elsewhere, go the Garmin 660, $579.00 from GPSOZ. I have no connection to GPSOZ BTW.
I've had both.

The Garmin on my 2010 GS & The Nav 4 on my 2013 and I swapped them to see if there was any differences.

The Nav 4 is a little more responsive but the ring-thing does get bumped from time to time, no big deal & easy to correct.

Only reason I went with the Nav 4 was that I really wanted all the stock stuff when I got it & I had the coin.

Cheers,

DL

Wondering if the Nav IV operating system can turn a garmin 660 into a Nav IV. Must be some smart hackers here that have worked this out by now?

Them you could just buy the software and use a Garmin 66o ?

Not possible at this time. If you look around there are a couple of Nav IVs available for $525.oo in the different forums.

I like the LED's on the new GS (when they are on with the lo-beams at the same time). Just saw the DRL picture of the new KTM in German Motorrad, compared to the conventional F800GS halogen, not sure which light gives better visibility during daylight. Color difference and light output area.

It is supplied with the bike. Look in the bottom of the riders seat near the front.

Unless you got your bike very, very early, it should have been with the bike, in a slot in the front seat pan.

Mine was delivered with it a over two months ago, as are all others.

I have a pair of Clearwater Darlas that I'd like to install on my GS LC but can't find a decent bracket. What do you mean by your friend using the "stock GS mounting brackets"?

He is either confused or lying. My plug came with the bike stored under the rider's seat. Its red and hard to miss.
