*This is not a product from or made by Bayerische Motoren Werke AG and BMW of North America, LLC ("BMW"), who own the trademarks related to BMW automobiles.* Sunshade / Sonnenblende for BMW Navigator 5 in Portrait mode Clip-on mount. No rubber band or o-ring needed! (Attention: does not work with the 4-button mount) In white for those who want to spray it themselves. No logos. Made on request from a user from the advrider.com forum.
To install the BMW mount cradle in Portrait orientation, you'll want my variable adapter here --> https://www.shapeways.com/product/QPXH88JAC/variable-riser-adapter-for-bmw-nav5-6-mount-cradle?optionId=64934380 Attention/Notice: By default, the
Navigator 5 switches automatically to Normal mode and hides the orientation menu point. By masking contact #3 with a piece of tape (view device from its backside, second row from the bottom, the right contact spot) which is ground, the Nav5 does not detect that it is in the cradle.
- It powers up normally with ignition on
- The power down question only pops up when the ECU shuts down power to the cradle and the whole system (not instantly when ignition is off)
: The device loses access to the LIN bus = No integration with the bikes computer (no "My motorcycle" page and any information provided through the ECU) and scroll wheel functionality. You have to tap the screen as with any TomTom or (non-BMW-customized) Garmin device.
