Nav 6 dashboard housing on 2011 k1600gt
« on: September 03, 2018, 10:21:32 am »
Dear Forum members,

Doubtless this has been tackled before !!

I have become the proud owner of a 2011 K1600 GT SE and recently purchased the BMW NAV 6.

Proceeded to slot unto housing in the dash only to find that the housing in the dash board  is somewhat smaller than the NAV 6 screen itself, whilst still usable it a little frustrating to say the the least, do BMW make an aftermarket housing for the NAV 6 ?

Any help much appreciated...😦

Congratulations on the bike - fabulous machine  8)

Yes - 2011 GT came with the dashboard for the NAV IV. The NAV V and VI will work fine but the screen is about half inch bigger so you need to get the dashboard from the later bike, it is a straight swap.

The instrument cover (46 63 8 382 723 number 2, below) is only about £30 but takes a little bid fiddly to change:
