Availability of 2009 BMW R1200GS OEM rack mount?

At the Vancouver Motorcycle show last month - it was mentioned that mount fitment for the BMW OEM rack is almost ready for production. Is there a timeline as to when it will be available?

Any other manufactures make something similar?

I have a Nuvi 550. It also has a rubber gasket and I haven't had problems with corrosion on connectors.

It has a usb connector for power - so I suspect that over time it can become corroded.
