BMW's BT helmet system with NAV V on a GSW allows MP3 an directins volume control through the GS "wheel".

Can anyone please inform if there is any other BT system where the GS's "wheel" also controls listening level ?

Thanks,

Andre

As was previously noted the Vikuiti 3M ARMR220 for BMW Navigator V does fit (107mmx65mm) and can be acquired either at an Amazon.com seller or Protectionfilms24.com.
Installed the Vikuiti DQCM30 today.....size is correct, but the install wasn't as easy as it should have been. Of course this is about me not the protector. Not sure I can live with the final result.

I am not sure if any other systems do allow volume control via wheel . I cannot do this, nor do I want to, with my Senna. I have looked at all the BT headsets and IMO the Senna is the best unit. Very simple ti adjust volume by quick turn of one large dial ?

So, did we work out how to blank the screen when riding?

Sometimes I just don't want the screen on, cheers.

Anyone had the same problem? Any solutions?
Thanks a lot friends!!!
iPhone 5s with 7.1 pairs just fine with my Nav V. No issues but I did have to disable search for BT devices in the Nav. Music playback paused randomly if find new devices was on.

Screen Protection

Oversized screen protectors (for the 760) on the big auction site ... 3 for $7.98 shipped. Cut them to fit - works great!

My Nushield's arrived a few days ago, haven't even looked at them yet, but will to see how they fit. AFter the Vikuiti has dried they are OK. A little dark in the sun but I can see the Nav V it is matte finish and it has a slight tint.

BMW Navigator V on GSW

Before you had 2 navigation options; fastest route and shortest route. Version 2.60 has added the functionality of curvy route. You put in your destination and it gives you a couple of options with the curviest roads. I have found it at minimum doubles the transit time. Sometimes 3-4x longer!

Probably wouldn't do much for the Midwesterners but out here in CA living near all the good roads lets just say it takes awhile to calculate the route sometimes

Does it seem to also pick smaller roads?

Does anyone know if there's a setting to avoid town/ city centres? I normally put fastest route in, which should avoid busy cities, but it doesn't always.
