    Gps connector in k1300s ?

    Just bought a Gps for mounting on my K1300s. Is there a connector fitted on the bike wiring loom already to use the 3 pin rep connector that can be purchased from bmw ?
    If so where is it?
    My old f800st had this, k1300 must likely but i dont know where it is on the bike.

    There's a white plug in front of the battery. It may have a black protective cover on the plug. The black thing laying on top of my battery is the cover.
    The plug is circled in red.

    Is there a mount for the NAV VI that may be installed on a 2010 K1300S?

    Welcome to the forum.
    Are you looking for a cradle to power the Nav, or a mount to attach the unit to the bike?

    Mmm. I guess, both. I have not bought a NAV VI, yet, because I do not know what accessory mounts are available for the K1300S cockpit. I've seen a few photos of persons using Garmin Zumo's, but the images are never close-ups so I don't know how these were mounted. Thanks for asking.

    BMW has a cradle that fits the Navigator IV, V and VI.
    I think the Zumo 660/665 will also work, but you need to check on that.

    At first I used the top part of a Ram handle bar mount and attached it to the lower half of my clutch lever clamp.
    I had to file out the Ram part and use longer bolts to make it work.

    Later I found a used Verholen ball that screws in where the plastis BMW Roundel is.

    Ram sells a ball that screws into the same spot but has a unfinished look.

    One more option.

    The ball on the left is another option.


    It's made by Hornig

    BikePenR GPS Mounts - Pirateslair.net

    I like the GT10 for K1300S from Pirateslair.net - BikePenR GSP Mounts. Gotta' give up the Roundel in the center of the bars (which may be heresy - will leave that to an Inquisition....) but it's elegant. Thanks Lee.

    The BikePenR mounts I've seen are well made and Pirate is a good vendor to do business with.

    Got a Question

    I have the cradle for the Navigator V. It has two sets of wires with plugs. Where do they connect? It came with absolutely no instructions, but it did have a packet of Body & Bike shower gel.

    Post # 2 shows the connector.
    You only use one of the cradle connectors on the K1300S.
