you can fairly easy to stick your garmin to the trim here.

Or you can use a film and stick it on the dashboard door, so you will get a non-porous surface so you can stick the suction cup there.

is this what you´re looking for?
You can order a package named "BMW Navigation Portable Pro" where the navi, TMC-antenna and all other parts are included. The Audio output comes out of the the car speakers while the music will be dimmed.
Total costs for me: 600 Euro
The pics 1-3 shows the Garmin 3790T, pic 4 a previous model

You can just order the bracket and wiring for very little money and put your Garmin in.

Check www.realoem.com for details.
