Here in the US it appears you can purchase the Navigator IV alone or as a kit, here's a link to them both:

http://www.sierrabmwonline.com/advan...&Go.x=0&Go.y=0

Navigator IV - $799
Navigator Kit - $1,163.95

If you order the LC with the Premium Plus package it states it has the GPS prep, so does that mean that you simply need to order the Navigator only ($799)? Or do you still need to order the kit ($1,163.95) ??

No, if your bike specifies GPS preparation then all the wiring and cradle are already on there, you just need the navigator on it's own, I just transferred my navigator straight over from my K16.
The kit looks like it's to retro fit to bikes which don't have gps prep from the factory.

Got it - thanks! That's the answer I was hoping for.

However, they NEVER show what the push/pull and rotate is actually changing.

People looked at the video and saw what they wanted to see.

Spring is here. The weather is nice. It's time for my dealer to get a bike ready for test rides so I can figure out if I really want one. If I do want one I'll probably have to wait 6-9 months until they build it.

On the plus side the early adopters should have found all the gotchas by then.
exactly correct...I was telling you guys the same thing a long time ago and this is exactly what the BMW marketing material said as well.

Yes.

Below is a drawing from the BMW Motorrad spare parts catalogue that shows the switch (pos. 5 and 7).

Before putting the LED auxiliary lights, the left rear mirror was held by 2 torx screws. Based on Max's schematic diagram, it appears it is now held by 1 screw. Doesn't make sense, perhaps there is the 2nd screw, but it is obscured.

The switch is held by one screw but the pipe clamp is still attached by two torx screws, which are the same as used without the switch. The pipe clamp is however different when you have the switch. The two torx screws are M6x30 and the extra screw that holds the switch is M5x14.

Here you can see the two torx screws holding the pipe clamp.

I expect the GS & navigator IV to be able to go through the Music Player list, next/previous song. That kind fo stuff. Volume control will probably not work without a BMW BT kit. Just like on my K1600GT.

I did not have a BMW BT Helmet, but used the mobile BT adapters from Sony-Ericsson and one from Nokia. Both costed me about 30 bucks (eBay), beating the one helmet only limitation of the (zillion dollar) bmw set. I also like to use my own headphone set. Volume control goes through the cord of my headphone set or the BT Adapters.

Are the vario bags the same dimensions as the previous model just with the exhaust cut out on the opposite side?

OK this deserves separate post so you won't miss it.

Two videos by Dirk Thelen, with new GS using it's Enduro genes... Rather well I'd say.

I didn't watch the videos thoroughly yet, but when someone does, please report back to us any hint of head-shake....

Great vids
In the second one, the fun begins around 4 min. Not too sure if I would take my new girl on this rocky trail
