10 October 2012
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: Awesome GPS. I've put over 15k on my bike since I install the TomTom Rider 2, went trough severe rain storms, rugged roads, very cold and super hot days ... and my GPS kept me from getting lost at all times. Very user friendly, cool looking and priced right. I'm very happy with it.

I had to buy the car charger lead and mount as a separate options that cost the modest amount of £70 the two, which I found a bit excessive. On the bike the directions and screen are clear and reasonably accurate, but it is well worth sorting out the blue tooth link to the headset (provided) which took several ...
Pros: Ease of Use, Features, Solid Feel
Cons: A sizeable investment, too heavy for the car support
per non fare avanti e dietro come criceti impazziti

Excerpt: Viaggiare che bella sensazione di liberta! poi se si ha la possibilità di viaggiare in moto allora il senso di libertà aumenta esponezialmente! Il tom tom rider v2 devo dire che ti aiuta tantissimo a non fare avanti e dietro come un criceto impazzito...certo affidarsi interamente ad un dispositivo non è il massimo anche perchè a volte non è che sia efficientissimo...bisogna spesso aggiornare le mappe anche perchè le strade sono in continua evoluzione ...
