Garmin BMW Navigator 3

I just bought a used GPS , BMW navigator III, and I do not know how the cradle attach to the bike (R1100GS). Something must be missing here. After a couple hours search on ADV and Google, I came empty, and I was wondering where can I get this specific mount or bracket for the 4 attachement bolts at the back of the cradle.
Thanks

RAM has a couple of them. They have a four hole round disk with a RAM ball on it, and a 2 hole plate (use two opposite holes). Those four hole are a standard Garmin mounting. Look here...

How will you be mounting it?
There is a small profile "pinch mount" that goes on the cross bar - a BMW part. In my opinion, this is better than the ram system as it very solid and keeps the unit very close to the bar. I can get the BMW P/N later today.

Thanks guys for your answers.
I get the all set, included the remote, the cables, the auto kit, but does this "pinch mount" supposed to be in the original package! I will really appreciate if you can send me a part # or a link where I can buy it. A picture, if possible, of this "pinch mount" would also help me do my search.
Thanks again

I am not certain if it was part of the set or not. I am not using a BMW branded unit, I am using a Garmin unit. I had to get the mount separately. Horizontally the holes are approx 40mm apart, vertically 30mm. You can see my cradle bolted on top of the pinch mount on my crossbar.

You need the mount that attaches to the four nuts in the picture. See your dealer.

Do you know if the BMW mount was supposed to be part of the all BMW Motorrad Navigator package? Before asking the seller if he may has forgotten to send me this part, I want to be sure that it should be in the original box.
Thanks

That is the p/n - I have the box and installed it myself.
Here is a foto of the part you get. The gps cradle screws to this mount. Measure your bolt holes and see if it measures up to the measurements I gave before.

Thanks so much for your patience, sorry for the confusion, I thought that your "garmin unit" was in fact the mount. I get it now. The space in between the bolts matches, so will go to my BMW dealer tomorrow and order one.
Thanks again for your help.
