Garmin signed up BMW for aftermarket PND solutions
Garmin has announced it will supply the BMW Group with the Garmin Nuvi 360 as a customized portable navigation solution for the BMW 1 and 3 Series.

"This system has numerous customizations that make it unique to BMW such as the BMW logo on the navigation device's exterior casing, BMW logo on the welcome screen, BMW dealer database and tailored mounting system," said Roger Jollis, Garmin's director of OEM & mobile marketing. "It integrates seamlessly into the vehicle and we are confident BMW owners will be pleased with the system's style, reliability and versatility."

The customized mounting bracket that allows owners to mount the nuvi directly to the interior trim on the instrument panel, and to power it by BMW's onboard network which eliminates the need for exposed power cables.

This announcement marks Garmin's second customized portable navigation system with BMW AG. Last year, MINI announced a specially configured retrofit mobile navigation system, also based on the Garmin nuvi 360, for use in any model in the MINI range.
