Is it Possible to load BMW software into Garmin?

I was excited about the possibility to use my new Streetpilot 2820 on an original BMW craddle but...
My first disappointment came when I updated my Garmin with the freshly available BMW Navigator III software...(released on the 21th Aug06).
In fact, it updates the unit BUT, you only have a'Garmin' unit meaning that it does not deliver the 'specific' part of the BMW firmware...you keep the Garmin welcome screen, you don t get the Compass feature etc...
Well, I would not mind not to get those but I am afraid that a less visible part of the features will also be missing : the interface with the craddle.
Indeed, the speed of the serial interface that allows the craddle to speak with the unit is operated at a different speed within the BMW navigator...
Anyone ever tried to get a 'Full BMW Navigator' software in his Garmin unit (whatever the unit type 26XX,27XX,2820...)?
Thanks.
