navigator 3+ is there a mounting bracket for 2007 GT?

I have a new Navigator 3+, the mounting bracket I was sent is for the older GT and doesn't fit this bike. My dealer seems pretty clueless, and I haven't had a chance to interrogate them further, but so far I have not been able to identify online any such official BMW bracket for this bike. Canadian bike if it matters (07). Thanks for any help

I got the Nav III when I bought my '07 GT, and the mounting kit was in the box with the GPS itself, so I don't have any info on part numbers but can confirm that there is a very nice mount for the GT. It consisted of a cradle, a bracket that screws onto the handlebars, and a cable that plugs right into the accessory lead under the battery cover.

Thanks, it seems that with the 3+ that they deleted the bracket which now has to be ordered separately. You would not happen to have a picture of the installation so that I could refer my dealer to it so they would know what it is supposed to be like - they seem to be having a problem with this!!#[email protected]&%^$

Extra spacers

That's a decent picture of the bracket and cradle. I think the silver bits must be some extra spacers added by the owner, mine definitely doesn't look like that nor stick out that far. Possibly they wanted to get a little more height to see the GPS over a tank bag or something like that.
