I find if it's turned off and still in the cradle it loses it's charge in a couple of days, if I remove it from the cradle it stays charged for a couple of weeks at least.

Mine discharges in 4 - 5 days, out of the cradle and hard-powered down

The battery is the same for the Nav 5 & 6. You can get a replacement from a BMW dealer or the tinternet.


Cheers, thanks for those links.

The battery is unique to BMW units. (Or is, in the case of the Nav5).   

If you aren’t riding in winter, and don’t use the Nav in the car - charge it up, take the back off and unplug the battery.

That's a good idea. I'll do that.

Given the weather, lockdown and that I'm working from home, I'm not using the bike and using the car instead when I need to make a trip to the supermarket

Email Garmin Customer Services with the serial number, I did and they sent me a new battery FOC as it was still under warranty. Can't remember how old it was, three or four years possibly.

I did. They sent me a generic link to the FAQ and told me to contact a local dealer if it's under warranty.
