Exclamation Bike won't start

I wonder if anyone can help me here.
I have a 2012 k1600gt very happy with the bike.
Last week I purchased a BMW motorrad navigator IV GPS, I plugged it in and it works like a charm. Connects to the main system, everything perfect.
This morning I went to start the bike... nothing. My house has a steep driveway, I tried to jumpstart... nothing.
Foolishly(?) I tried to jumpstart the bike with a set of leads from the car... still nothing.
Managed (with help) to get the bike back up the driveway and into the garage, pulled the battery out (10 months old nano- gel) put it on the charger it's currently reading 13.8v.
I'm hoping the gps thing is purely coincidental, but what the heck is going on?
