Question Navigator V on F800GS Adventure, cable of mount too short?

A few days ago I had my dealer install a Navigator V on my F800GS Adventure. Apparently they had to extend the cable for the mount, since it was too short because the GPS is mounted higher up than on a regular F800GS.

I talked to the dealer when picking the bike up but it wasn't completely clear whether a version of the mount exists with a longer cable. Granted, I shouldn't have left without a definitive answer, but are there any members who have had the Navigator V (or a Navigator IV, I think the mount is identical) installed and can tell me if the cable had to be extended?

I need to return to the dealer anyway, but would like to know for sure if it exists.

Have the Nav V on my 2014 f8GSA and as far as I know, no extended cable had to be put on. Maybe my dealer ordered the right mounting kit.(I'm not sure if there is more than one version) I think it is the same cable as the 1200 WC.

Same here, -13 F800GSA and Navigator V with the mount you buy with the gps. No problems with too short cables here, enough length

Forgive me for asking: is this unit in some way integrated with the motorcycle - like on the 1200 where you have steering controls? What makes it better than a 590? And what about lockable mount?
(I can't find any info on this on Norwegian websites and dealers are few. I ride a 2012 800GS).

There's no integration with the motorcycle.
