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.
Summary: it's a darn good piece for the bike, lacking a voice for use while driving is a major shorcomming. a small self contained speaker or cheapie blue tooth earpiece would probably suffice. this is a minor issue, but i can't change the cursor, either.
Summary: BEFORE I purchased this unit, I read the reviews- many or most being negative - and I still purchased it. Although I found the comments to be mainly true, I'm still satisfied with my purchase. Let's review a few of the comments made by naysayers. 1.
Summary: The TomTom Rider 2 is exactly what they say it is.It does a good job as a GPS unit.If you have had a TomTom unit befor the Rider, you will be very comfortable in the menus of the Rider2. The Ram mount included in the box is very sturdy and holds the Rider very securly.
Summary: A bit pricy for what you get. I already had 2 sets of Scala Rider Q2 head sets. Would have prefered to have payed less and just bought the TomTom Rider 2 without the Scala headset. Does not come with car adapter. Works just like regular GPS but more expensive for what you get.
Good GPS, OK interface, horrible tech support... broken 6 months later

Summary: UPDATE: 2 STARS (amazon won't let me change the rating) see my update comments below my unit arrived with a defective memory card. from my computer i was able to access the data on the card and copy it to a new one which worked fine...
Summary: excellent 99% of time ,we used on a 4400 mile trip but we were disapointed in the points of interest feature it did not even list Yellowstone Nat Park.Also it did not have gas stations listed unless it was Chevron or Texaco.
