Question Looking for DIY install directions for BMW Navigation Pro kit

Posted this in Audio/Video technical forum as well... apologies for the repetition here, but thought it may cover a broader DIY crowd.


I just ordered the BMW Navigation Pro install kit for a Garmin 760. Anyone have a DIY install guide? I have the instructions from the dealer with drawings that are quite hard to follow. if someone has done this and has better instructions and/or photos it would be greatly appreciated. The kit I'm referring to is: 65 90 0 445 990

Is this the DIY you have? BTW It looks like you need to drill it into your dash to put it in

No, different kit

No, not those instructions. I have the "pro" kit which is the newer one. The instructions for this one are attached.

It only required drilling under the trim.

lmao holy shit! If you want to get that kit, then get it done professionally. If you change your mind you can always get the suction cup.

You forgot step 3: Be prepared to lose couple Gs. I'm sure a sane person would not do so.

To OP, I thought the nuvi.PDF IS the DIY instruction, no? Even though it was meant for dealer installation I see no reason why you can't use it for DIY. I am thinking about doing the same thing as well.

I'm getting ready to order the kit from Tischer and will provide a step-by-step DYI when done. (Might be a few weeks to wait for a break in the weather).

I currently use a Nuvi 765t with the Kuda dash mount, but I am not satisfied with the wire hiding capabilities - so I'll pass the 765 to my wife, replacing her ancient 350 and get myself the new fancy unit in the BMW Pro kit.
