Olathe, Kan. -Garmin announced its fourth-generation OEM GPS device for BMW motorcycles that allows two Bluetooth inputs so users can talk on the phone and listen to music via Bluetooth.
The BMW Motorrad Navigator IV is based on the Garmin zumo 660 motorcycle GPS but it has a customized mount for BMW motorcycles. It also has four buttons on the left side and BMW-specific points of interest. It will be offered as a dealer option for BMW bikes starting in the third quarter.
The new unit is an improvement over the earlier BMW-Garmin Navigator in that it now has stereo Bluetooth and allows users to send routes to other Navigator IV devices. It also has a larger, 4.3-inch screen and sleeker form factor. The Navigator IV can work with Bluetooth-enabled helmet or headset and is waterproof, said Garmin.
