When GPS devices first started to become popular as options on vehicles, they were mainly limited to high-end luxury cars. As the price of GPS technology has come down, more and more vehicles and motorcycles are adding GPS options and many are opting for portable navigation devices.
Garmin and BMW have announced the introduction of a new GPS device that is customized for BMW motorcycle owners called the BMW Motrrad Navigator IV. The device has custom BMW features including a custom mount, preloaded BMW dealer database, and audio and Bluetooth capabilities.
The portable device has a 4.3-inch screen that is touch capable and glove friendly. The map database has millions of POIs installed and it gives turn-by-turn directions. The Bluetooth capability allows for sync with a helmet headset for making calls and getting driving directions. Pricing is unknown at this time.
