Summary: I purchased this product as I seemed unable to get my TomTom Classic to stick to the windscreen. The sticky pad does NOT stick. I have used a universal glue (not a super glue) and this has solved the problem. If ever need to remove it I shall just keep my fingers crossed! It is very easy to use and overall I am very pleased with it.
Summary: I got this in preparation for a long trip. I like that it's rugged and fairly easy to use. I have a 12V outlet on my bike near the mounting position so I'm not concerned about the unit's battery life. I was concerned that the Bluetooth headset might have battery life issues but it's never failed me yet - even when I was 8 hours in the saddle one day. Since I was the second owner there was one thing that was a bit weird.
Summary: My wife and I just began motorcycle road tripping along the back roads of Virginia last year, and for the most part we have been well-served with paper maps. But we felt that the TomTom RIDER 2 would provide an additional level of safety, enabling us to find service stations should anything go wrong with our older bikes. My only wish is that the RIDER 2 actually read the street name approaching turns; this is the main feature the Zumo has which the TTR2 does not..
Pros: Compact, Easy To Set Up, Excellent value, Free Cardo SCALA RIDER, Long Battery Life, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls, Strong Construction
Summary: AS reliable and accurate as my other TomToms. Easy set up and all works great except my Sony Erikson will not interface with the headset. I can dial and answer but the audio doesn't come through the headset. Don't know if this is an issue with the headset or the phone. All around great addition to the bike if I can get the headset issue straightened out.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Read, Long Battery Life, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls, Strong Construction, Versatile
