Would love some more firm info on Nav V availability, I am picking up a new GS in May with Sat prep but am not keen on this older Nav IV at the ridiculous price they are asking.

If I have to pay big bucks I want the latest, might as well hold off I guess.

Actually, the locating lugs are slightly different.

A Nav IV or Zumo will fit a Nav V cradle, but a Nav V will not fit a Nav IV or Zumo cradle.

There was a fellow who had made an app for android navigation. It had a little joystick mounted on the handlebar.

I am sure the same fellow could make use of the controls on the handlebar....
CraftyCoder was his name I believe.

Some one hack that handlebar already! The possibilities for the diy guys would be endless. Pity the diy people usually like to start hacking things once they start becoming slightly older...

Put an ipad or galaxy tab behind the windshield and you are golden...

Dealer said

Funny enough i was kicking the tires on a WC a couple weeks ago and asked about the GPS, dealer said it was a 660 in bmw's flavour but with significant price drop over previous years to the $700 mark (thats Canada bucks)

Well it looks like I am in the minority. I have a new WC GS and bought a BMW IV. It works flawlessly and communicates with the bike automatically setting time and date , actuall fuel readings giving low fuel warning set where I want it to come on. Music is good with the Scala G9 . I am we'll impressed.

Too bad but good to know. I'll be managing with my nuvi until the new V comes out and buy the whole kit (even though I have a IV cradle that came with my bike).
Thanks for the info Andy!

Can you elaborate on this? What app are you using for navigation and just using the map holder to keep it dry?

So what is the "guess" on when the Navigator V will be available for our new bikes?

I have called myself paying attention, but I don't seem to recall ever seeing a date.

Also the first post in this thread was basically 18 months ago.

Thanks

If you look at the latest spy pictures of the RT LC you will see the dash has an installed GPS that is likely the Navigator V.
Interesting considering the new GS LC is using the Navigator IV on it's GPS Prep option.
