I am looking at the Garmin Zumo XT as a possible GPS for a 2020 GS. Does anyone have experience wiring and mounting this unit?
Thanks. Is the beemer electircal connection sold through Garmin?I have fitted a XT to my R1200. I took off the Nav VI and mounted on the support rail. Bought the beemer electrical connection and it works great. The XT is much better than the Nav Vi.
I have the Touratech Locking Mount also - I would recommend that also albeit a tad on the pricey side. Sometimes you just have to pay the $$$$$ in order to get the good stuff.Thanks. Is the beemer electircal connection sold through Garmin?
Touratech sells a lockable mount for the XT Touratech Locking GPS Mount for Garmin Zumo XT Pricey but their tech person told me I can remove the BMW mount for the Nav and bolt on the locking mount for the XT, the XT mount will fit into the locking mount and the XT will be mounted in the same place as the Nav VI. Sounds pretty easy. I'm headed towards the Zumo XT.
Hello, just received Zumo XT and trying to wire in similar to above. I am aware of BMW's and Touratech's 3-pin adapter but I also want to keep the Nav so i can see the data screen (not for GPS). And i don't want to wire the Zumo all the way back to the battery and have it always powered on. Has anyone tapped-in their Zumo XT into other switched wires. I was thinking of tapping the Zumo into the wires for the horn. Thoughts?
With the Zumo XT is has a box in the wiring that converts 12 volts to 5 volts and 1.5 amps. Does this box have anything to do with the CANBUS system; that is, does this make it safe to wire into something like the horn?
Thanks! I think this would work but by using this plug I think it means that i would have to unplug the Garmin Nav IV, which i do not want to do.
