BMW Navigator StreetP90194385-highResA Budget GPS Unit from BMW Motorrad? –

Inexpensive isn’t a word usually associated with anything related to BMW, but in the literature for the company’s latest GPS unit it appears in the first sentence. At $550.99, the new entry-level navigation tool from BMW features a 4.3-inch touchscreen that’s bright enough to be easily legible even in direct sunlight. It also boasts Bluetooth that allows riders to pair a communication system with the Navigator Street in order to hear verbal directions in their helmet. The unit comes loaded with maps of both Europe and North America with free map upgrades for the life of the unit (a savings in itself). The BMW Navigator Street’s underlying operating system comes from Garmin and is compatible with the company’s BaseCamp software for route planning. Internal storage capacity is 8GB and an SD card slot allows for expanded memory.

As with any good, modern motorcycle navigation unit, this one has a Winding Road feature, which seeks out the twistiest route to the intended destination. Some other features include a 3D intersection view and TrackBack function. The Navigator Street includes all the mounting hardware needed to attach it to any BMW motorcycle (presumably this should work for other brands, too).

Compared to the company’s other GPS models the Street is decently budget friendly and it certainly seems to have the credentials to be an interesting choice in the motorcycle GPS segment. The best place to find the Navigator Street is at your local BMW dealer.
