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....
Summary: This appears to be a great GPS, but if you buy a refurb, they don't come with the cradle, RAM mount, battery cable, or headset. Do yourself a favor and buy a new unit to get everything. I was able to find a RAM mount with cradle on eBay for $260! After paying $160 for the refurbed GPS, plus $260 for the cradle/RAM kit, plus $30 for a headset puts me @ $450.
A disappointing purchase - but excellent call center staff and service

Summary: I ordered the TT2 after reading numerous reviews, some positive and some not so good. What worried me was that I had two Garmin products that work a charm, but their mototcycle GPS was a bit tad expensive. The mounting and setup was easy, but noticeable was the tangible feel - not really making me feel warm and fussy inside about my decision. I hoped that I would be wrong. But I wasn't. The buttons are too small to work properly with gloves on, even summer gloves.
Summary: My wife gave me this unit for Christmas. She's a doll and I love her very much, but she was not very versed about what to shop for or expect from a GPS unit. I've now used the unit several hours during trips, utilizing the blue tooth connectivity with my cell phone and the included headset within my helmet. Ive also used it in the car a lot.
Summary: This is our first GPS and as much as it cost you would think it would have more on it. You pay a lot just for the water-proof case! I would think they could include some of the options that you find on non-water proof GPS for the about the same price. We got it about 2 months ago and since we live in Ohio we haven't tried it on the bike yet. We haven't gone out of town yet so we have been using it around home to get use to it.
Summary: Die Geschichte mit TomTom begann schon vor dem Kauf: Da der TomTom Rider 2nd Edition im Juni 2010 kaum noch im Zubehörhandel zu bekommen war "wir warten auf das neue Modell", fragte ich bei TomTom nach, wann das erscheinen solle. Die Antwort war, dass man das nicht wisse... Offensichtlich wollte die Firma noch ihre alten Geräte loswerden! Das dann gekaufte Gerät ließ sich nicht über die Docking Station aufladen.
