BMW Nav vs Garmin decode part numbers

Post by JohnnyRidesAlone »

This is what I think;

BMW IV = Zumo 660
BMW V = Zumo 590/95
BMW VI = Zumo XT

I intend to hire one on holiday. I know that Jog weel on GS will not work if I use Garmin

Corrections or confirmation welcome

They are similar to what you have posted but not the same

A lot of people say the XT is superior to the Nav 6

Thanks Stu,

My objective would be what BMW cradle would run what Garmin. When I was in Italy I ran my 660 on a GS 1200 cradle ** . No jog wheel but was OK.
My issue is that loading an SD card with my routes onto a hire unit can be hit and miss. In Portugal it took forever to load.

** It did work until I realized I had not clicked it into place and it popped off at 80KMH into Giuseppe’s Fiat !. He was not happy but saw the funny side in the end.

On that basis I believe the 660 will fit the cradle and the nav V and VI

I don't believe a 590/595 fits as I believe the power outputs/inputs are different

The connecting pins are the same for 660, 590, 595, Nav V and VI. The case dimensions vary, so I'm pretty sure a Zumo 59x will not fit an RT's factory GPS mount, but might work on a GS. The NAV VI is more like a 595 with an improved screen. The XT uses totally different connections and mount, though there are adapters available to use the BMW cradle for mounting and power.
