BMW Motorrad Navigator Adventure


Munich. In addition to the BMW Navigator IV, BMW   Motorrad now also offers the new BMW Motorrad Navigator Adventure.   With universal software and longer battery life, the Navigator Adventure is a versatile GPS navigation system that can be used for a   host of outdoor activities, such as cycling, hiking or sailing, as   well as motorcycling. The car installation kit, available as an   special accessory, enables the Navigator Adventure with its   preinstalled European road maps (CityNavigator Europe NT) also to be   used in cars. Another special feature is the free lifetime map update,   making the Navigator Adventure a long-term travel partner.

BMW Motorrad Navigator

The BMW Motorrad Navigator Adventure makes touring on unfamiliar   routes easier, safer and more relaxing. A 4-inch touch screen with   flexible orientation enables you to determine your current GPS   position quickly and precisely even in thick forests or between tall   buildings. The dual battery system with the rechargeable lithium ion   battery pack gives the Navigator Adventure up to 16 hours of battery   life. Using conventional AA batteries increases this to 22 hours.

The customisable menu structure is particularly user-friendly. A   configuration profile for use with motorcycles is set as the default   and can be changed as necessary. In the main menu, up to 16 controls   from the “Destination Entry”, “Settings” and “Short Commands” menu   items can be configured individually according to frequency of access.   The speed of access without switching between the screen windows   offers users optimum usability. In addition, automatic switching   between day and night modes ensures good readability at all times.

For outdoor activities, the BMW Motorrad Navigator Adventure has an   integrated electronic 3-axis compass with incline correction and a   barometric altimeter. GPX files for geocaching are supported and are   transferred directly to the Navigator Adventure (for example from the   website). Important information about finding geocaches, such as   position, terrain and level of difficulty, as well as information and   descriptions, can be read directly from the display.

The BMW Motorrad Navigator Adventure, which has a water-proof   housing, allows data such as waypoints, tracks and geocaches to be   stored in the calendar, so that the activities can be reproduced at a   later point. In addition, the Navigator Adventure is compatible with   Custom Maps, enabling personalised map data to be generated on the   basis of electronic maps, which can then be loaded on the navigation   system. The MicroSD map slots make it possible to load more map data,   such as topographical maps for hiking or cycling.

The BMW Motorrad Navigator Adventure is supplied with a mount cradle   for secure mounting on the motorcycle, while a vehicle-specific mount   can be ordered separately. It can be used as an alternative to the   Navigator IV on all BMW motorcycles except the new R 1200 GS, the K   1600 GT and the K 1600 GTL. The same vehicle specific mounts are used   in each case.
