    If I buy the BMW cradle for the Nav 6 with the buttons on the side and mount on the S1000R using the BMW USB connector from the mount to the bike will I get the diagnostic/trip/temp info like I get on my GSA ?

    BMW NAV MOUNT PART NUMBER 77528544464
    came real close to getting my answer. This mount with the four buttons on the left has two plugs. One is power the other is data. I found two you tube videos. One where a guy showed mounting it on a RR. The other on a RS. There are two plugs on the upper left side panel. one for power one for data. The one with the RR only showed the connections. The one with the RS showed the same two connections ( in different locations) but he powered it up and it did have the trip computer screen, but he did not go any farther to show if engine temp etc was displayed.

    Again, I want to use my NAV VI on the my S1000R with the hopes of getting the same diagnostic info as I get on the GS. I believe the 4 buttons on the left of the above cradle perform the same functions as the wonderwheel on the GS.
