BMW Navigator IV - the latest generation of motorcycle navigation systems from BMW in partnership with Garmin - has arrived in US BMW motorcycle dealerships.
It features a new slim design and custom BMW four-button mount cradle, a bright widescreen 4.3" display and waterproof design, configurable fields and display, stereo Bluetooth for hands-free calling, turn-by-turn directions and lane assist features with lane guidance and junction view.
Wearing gloves? The Navigator IV's motorcycle-friendly map display has a large-key multiple-page keyboard that makes typing with gloves a breeze, while the large glove-friendly zoom keys make the map easier to read.
Debating which lane to take at the next exit? Using the lane assist features, riders are advised whether there are multiple lanes and guided to take a specific lane. They are also able to view overhead signs just as they appear to drivers and guided to specific junctions.
How far will this tank of gas take you? On the trip computer and compass page, a fuel gauge displays both a graphical fuel level and the distance remaining until empty. The reserve point can be customized for the motorcycle.
Need to get there in a hurry, or taking the long way home? When planning a route or selecting a new destination, a custom routes menu allows riders to select the option of the shortest route, the fastest route or an off-road route.
Planning a trip? With the BMW Navigator IV and its accompanying MapSource DVD, riders can plan trips on or off their bikes by completing trip planning functions from their computer, saving routes directly to and from the Navigator IV, transferring TrackLogs and saving those as routes, adding points to existing routes and using avoidance functions to build routes and stay on preferred roads.
The BMW Navigator IV is available at BMW Motorcycle dealers throughout the US for a MSRP of $900.17 and includes a BMW four-button mount cradle, head unit, carrying case, mount cover, AC chargers, USB cable, MapSource DVD, Bluetooth GPS compatible with over 200 phones, three-year warranty and owners manual.
