The BMW navigation system was never going to be pursued, but the bracket and mounting took up a lot of room. It was located right in the center of vision (of course that is where BMW would want it), where you would want your phone/GPS to be. The toughest task was disconnecting the wiring. It wound around through several zip tie anchors, and was a pain to unravel. Eventually it was removed intact, Step two was to install a RAM mount on one of the handlebar bolts, so the X mount for the phone could be used. Done.
