"The Ultimate Motorcycle Navigation System"
- BMW Motorrad
August 24, 2009 - Take the long route on your next
motorcycle adventure with confidence and ease. The BMW Navigator IV – the latest
generation of motorcycle navigation systems from BMW in partnership with Garmin
– has arrived in U.S. BMW motorcycle dealerships.
BMW Navigator IV features a new slim design and custom BMW four-button mount
cradle, a bright widescreen 4.3 inch 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 motorcyclist-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
The BMW Navigator IV is available at BMW Motorcycle dealers throughout the
U.S. for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $900.17 and includes a BMW
four-button mount cradle, a head unit, a carrying case, mount cover, AC
chargers, USB cable, MapSource DVD, a Bluetooth GPS compatible with over 200
phones, a three-year warranty and an owners manual.
