Summary: this gps has been one tough customer i have dropped it a number of times by accident and it still works. it has got me everywhere i have wanted to go and it ties my iphone to my bluetooth helmet nicely. it gives me a sense of safety knowing that my parents can get in touch with me anytime i am riding. which is most of the time. my motorcycle is my primary transport and i get into a lot of out of the way places. this unit has not failed one time.
Summary: I have a couple of Garmin car style gps units but I decided to try this TomTom Rider because it was half the price of a Garmin waterproof unit. I am unimpressed. I use a Scala Rider G4 headset with it and turning the volume up all the way on both I can barely hear the instructions and I tried several of the voice options. The directions are ok but it just says turn right, no street names.
Summary: THIS IS ONE TUFF PRODUCT ,MINE IS 6 YEARS OLD AND IT HAS BEEN IN SNOW,RAIN,SCORCHING SUN,EVEN SURVIVED FALLING OF MY BIKE.IF YOU ARE TRULLY LOOKING FOR A TUFF GPS THIS IS THE ONE ,I WOULD BUY ANOTHER ONE BUT I CAN'T KILL THIS ONE,GO TO AMAZON .COM AND CHECK IT OUT !
Summary: its good for bikes... had it installed on both bikes i had, and it stopped charging for some reason, pretty difficult to sync to other bluetooth helmets tho.. infact couldnt do it at all, only the supplied head set worked... anyways... my Droid Phone does the job ten times better, oh ya i forgot to say, the trip planner was in beta for like the 2 yrs i owned the device, and never worked for me... well... just saying....
It doesn't matter how good it works if the company won't make replacement parts

Summary: I purchased this unit along with a three year extended warranty. About a year after purchasing, the hardwired mount stopped charging the unit. I could still charge it with the home charger but not on the bike. When I tried to buy a replacement mount I found they no longer support this item in the USA nor do they manufacture the part. I wrote letters with no responce from Tom Tom. The GPS stopped working (unrelated to charger) and I sent it in to the warranty company.
