Thread: Gps connector in k1300s ?

  1. #16

    PO cut the blinking plug off!

    Thanks, Lee
    After taking almost all of the fairing off, I finally found what I believe to be the wires. Note I said nothing about the connector since the previous owner cut it off for some reason, which is one of many reasons why I’m not fond of used vehicles. However, he did upgrade the horn from the stock sleepy cow MOO to an air horn.

    There are three wires:
    Red
    Blue
    Brown

    I think the red and brown wires are power and ground. I have no idea what the blue wire does, but those are also the colors of the wires to one of the plugs on the cradle. My plan is to solder in a matching pair of three pin plugs. Is this going to work?

    I don't know.
    I do know all 3 wires are not used.
    The wires coming from my bike had the same 3 colors as yours. The repair cable I attached to my GPS only used 2 of the 3 wires.
    Matching the colors would be a good guess but it would be better if someone with better wiring knowledge jumps in and lets you know.

    [QUOTE=Lee;1120657]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.

    Lee I have a Navigator VI I would like to use on my K1300S. I do not have the BMW cradle which went with my R1200RT along with my Navigator V when I traded the bike in last spring. I contacted pirate about whether the Pen stem mount bracket he sells would directly mount the navigator VI cradle. He was not sure and sid he would check but has not responded yet. Do you know if the Pen mount will work with the Nav VI cradle? Also do you know the best place (best deal) I can get a Navigator cradle?

    I had taken for granted the 4 holes on the Bike Pen were a standard spacing like the Navigator uses.
    I think the BMW Navigator cradle is only available from dealers.
    They sell a 4 button cradle and one without the buttons.
    If you have a wonder wheel you don't need the buttons.

    Thanks Lee, I don't have the wonder wheel so I would buy the one with the buttons. I have a friend with the one without the buttons so I can measure the hole spacing on his. Hopefully Pirate can get me the hole spacing on the Pen mount.

    Iíve used these people with good results. Shipping takes a bit longer. Uncertainty with dealing with a foreign vendor is mitigated by PayPal. Their price for a four button cradle is 100.00 Euros which at todayís exchange rate is $110.00.

    Looks like it will fit but I bought it from Bob's BMW here in the USA. For some reason the Bohling link did not work with paypal. Thanks for the help

    This GPS mount has the correct hole spacing for the four button BMW cradle. Confirmed by pirate. I have a BMW GPS VI that I am going to use on my K1300HP. Thanks to lee and others here for the info
