Locking Sat Nav mount
« on: August 30, 2015, 05:29:20 PM »
 Rumour (a dealer information actually) has it that the basic (aka CHEAP) sat nav mount fitted to the SE versions of the XR allegedly was fitted because the Boxer teams (GS, R and RS) did not talk to the S1000 teams in the XR design proving stage so – again allegedly – the S1000 guys “just fitted the mount they knew about” instead of the more updated locking one fitted to the boxer twins.
 
There is now an update kit available to change the standard XR sat nav mount to the locking version as fitted to the new GS and RS.  Now personally I think that should be FOC as the XR should have the same as the boxer brothers - so maybe if we all agitate to BMW the dealers may be able to do something with BMW support.   Worth a try amyway.

That's handy to know. Do you have the part number?

Sorry no - I think it is a dealer lash up based on the parts they know are used on the Boxers.

It is a lashup as the locking one fits but has to be turned apparently to remove the NAV not sure on this as I have not done it to mine don't use the NAV much unless doing a tour.

I read somewhere that although it will fit, you can't get the key in or out very easily, if at all.

That is incorrect Rich - I have the kit on mine and its absolutely fine - you do have to rotate the whole assembly by about 45 degress, takes all of a nano second, then turn the key.  And the reverse when finished.  It also gives the unit a tiny bit more protection from rain.  Not much, but a bit !  And the parts are about £36, depending on how much discount your dealer will give you.  Fititng will be extra clearly, however a decent dealer should do it for free.  Mine did.

This is the list of parts you need to convert to a locking mount, It took me about an hour to fit including setting up the lock to my bikes key, there are several good tutorials on YouTube showing how to do this. As previously said its no big deal to rotate slightly to get the key in and out to lock/unlock but at least in suitable circumstances you can leave it unattended with a very high degree of confidence that the SatNav will be there on your return as it stops the opportunist thief.

I've ordered all those parts, and will get my dealer to code the lock. If we assemble the mount at the dealer, then I bring it home to fit to the bike (I'll go there on my GSA) is it easy to fit? And is the power cable plug and play, or do I need to re solder it to the new mount?
