“Our partnership with BMW Motorrad has proven very successful over the last 11 years and we’re thrilled to introduce this next-generation BMW Motorrad Navigator,” said Ulrich Niedermayr, automotive OEM account executive at Garmin Deutschland GmbH. “The BMW Motorrad Navigator V goes far beyond providing simple road guidance by giving riders instant access to real-time motorcycle data, extensive route planning capabilities and advanced audio and Bluetooth functionalities.”

BMW Navigator V features a large 5” display that is glove-friendly and makes navigation information visible at a glance. The integrated stereo Bluetooth functionality lets riders hear navigation prompts, answer calls or listen to music through their helmet. On select BMW motorcycles, riders can even view comprehensive real-time information 1 on the MyMotorcycle Pages, such as tire pressure, gas levels, and when their next service is. The system also tells the rider how many times he shifted gears, used the front or rear brakes, the average throttle position, and more 1. The page can be configured for multiple data field layouts and users can re-arrange the data in the order they would like to see. With the Last Ride Analyzer users can view a summary of the motorcycle data, trip conditions and stats of their last ride.

Premium Garmin navigation features include Active Lane Guidance, Real Directions, junction views, 3D terrain, and more. Garmin Real Directions™ guide riders in a natural and intuitive way. The new feature uses recognizable landmarks, buildings, traffic lights and stop signs to give directions. For example, it tells riders to “turn right after the Starbucks ® ” or “turn left at the traffic light.” The new Active Lane Guidance displays an animated graphic next to the map view that uses brightly colored arrows to indicate the proper lane needed to make a turn. PhotoNavigation allows riders to simply click on a geo-coded picture stored on the device to start navigating to that destination. When purchased with maps for Europe or North America, Motorrad Navigator V includes lifetime map updates 2.

Even before riders get on their motorcycle, they can conveniently plan out their trips in advance using the BaseCamp trip planning desktop software, creating longer and more detailed tours with up to 3,750 shaping points per trip. Trips can easily transferred to the navigation device via USB.

BMW Navigator V is compatible with Garmin Smartphone Link, an Android and iPhone app that provides riders access to live services 3, such as traffic camera images, weather and fuel prices, utilizing the smartphone's mobile data plan.

The BMW Navigator V comes with a BMW exclusive, four-button motorcycle mount that enables many quick-key functions for extra control and usability. The mount and GPS device are vibration-tested, waterproof (IPX-7 standards 4), and designed to withstand fuel sprays and UV rays. On R 1200 GS and K 1600 GT / GTL models with factory-installed navigation option many functions can also be controlled directly using the multi-controller on the left handlebar.

BMW Motorrad Navigator V is available now at BMW Motorrad dealers in Europe and North America.
