R1200RT LC 2017 with NAV 6

Postby hoppo » Mon Oct 30, 2017 7:26 pm

I have an R1200RT LC 2017 with a Navigator 6 fitted. Love the bike and the Nav 6, but need to confirm that I am not overlooking some of the functionality available. So what I would like is somebody that also has this combination. I have sorted out most of the wrinkles to make the Nav 6 useful day to day and have used Garmin Basecamp for uploads etc, but I do still have the odd question crop up on how to do this or that. So I wondered if there is anybody out there with this combination to swap notes/hints with, many thanks. If not no problem.

I've got the right bike, but I'm still on a Nav 5.
I'm also not the most savvy person on satnavs (or anything else from this century) so I hope you get the help you need and there may be some learnings which can help me too. Good luck ! :smile:

Thanks for the kind reply and a quick question for you though. Am I right in assuming that the best way to zoom in and zoom out on the map is by using the bikes menu screen and going to Navigation menu? (other than touching the Nav +/- screen icons). There you can use zoom+/zoom- by pushing the multi controller to the right. I thought that you would be able to do this by spinning the wheel back and forth when the map is on, but obviously not or am I missing a trick. I don't think the Nav 5 will work any differently, it's a basic question I know, but I believe it works this way on the R1200GS so why have BMW done it differently on the RT, that has foxed me. Other than that, as regards the RT it really is a pleasure to ride and much more comfortable over distance compared to my outgoing K1300S, although I am the wrong side of 60! and I now realise I should have gone to an RT before as it was always on my radar.
