    Hi guys, will the Navigator VI fit the GTRE 1600 2013 or do I need to make any changes to the bike. TIA.

      It will fit but as the screen on the Nav VI is slightly larger than the Nav V,  you will need the later model dash surround (Part number is 46 63 8 382 723 ) to see all of the screen properly. :)

        What differences are there between the 5 and the 6? Is it worth the hassle of changing the backing and paying a huge amount for the 6 over the 5? I have the 5 now and seems to do everything just fine?

          I have the V and I have friends with the VI, I didn't think it worth changing, the display on the VI definitely looks better than the V in daylight and it is easier to read but otherwise with a few minor exceptions they do virtually the same things and not worth the extra cost to change in my humble opinion.
          Others may well think otherwise.  :)

            Thanks everyone. I have decided on the V as the extra cost and hassle just ain't worth it 👍👍👍

              Have both units Nav 5 on my XR  and a Nav 6 on my GTL. Biggest differences are screen...Nav 6 huge improvement and Nav 6 no longer keeps the max speed.  Don't think the changes are worth changing units IMHO
