Introducing BMW Motorrad Connectivity
Debuts on the R 1200 GS and GSA

The international gathering of all things BMW – BMW Motorrad Days, set in the stunning Alpine scenery of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, was the venue for revealing some impressive new technology that’s coming our way. Most eye-catching was the latest R 1200 GS Adventure which was sporting a rather attractive TFT colour display.

BMW Motorrad Connectivity

Available on the latest 2018 MY R 1200 GS and Adventure from September production, the display integrates your smartphone (via an App) and your BMW Communications System in your helmet with your motorcycle. All this is accessed safely and conveniently by the now familiar controller wheel on the left-hand handlebar.

You can also have navigation displayed utilising lane, distance and turning direction arrow information again via your smartphone App.

Add this to the ability to control your music, phone calls and display vehicle information via a crystal-clear colour display, you have a incredibly powerful and intuitive tool to enhance your riding even further.

Price of the TFT Connectivity Display is £595.

    Can it be retro fitted?

  2. :

    Can this TFT display be retrofitted on a 2016 R1200 GS Adventure?

  3. :

    Is this available as retro fit. I have a 2017 euro 4 model

  4. :

    I have a 2017 Triple Black Adventure. Can the TFT screen be retro-fitted?

  5. :

    I can see the general fitting seems to be pretty close to the previous models (mine, 2014 GSA). Does it mean it could be retrofitted in the previous LC models, probably with a software update too? That would be really great, I’m sure many of us will pay for such a great update.

    can it ne retro fitted? I have a 17 plate so wont be buying a new one for 3 years, had I know about this prior to purchase I may have waited.

      It’s an interesting question Dave to which we do not have a definitive answer yet. You need to have the On Board Computer Pro option (part of the TE specification) as a pre-requisit but it ought to be unless they only release it coded to specific chassis numbers – we’ll await with interest.
