TomTom Rider

9 May 2009
  • Summary: Despite some performance glitches, the TomTom Rider is a solid navigation system for motorcyclists, with good Bluetooth integration, but we recommend swapping out the included Bluetooth headset for a higher-quality one.
  • Pros: The TomTom Rider provides text- and voice-guided directions to motorcyclists and comes with an easy-to-install mounting kit. All maps are preloaded on an included SD card, and the unit has integrated Bluetooth for hands-free calling.
  • Cons: The TomTom Rider's POI database is outdated and occasionally gave us wrong street names or no street at all for some side streets. Also, the included Bluetooth headset has poor sound quality and we wish the screen were slightly bigger.

TomTom Rider (2013)

TechRadar UK
19 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The rise of the personal GPS satellite navigation system really took off around a decade ago. Initially derided by the general driving public, you'll rarely see a car or van without one stuck to the inside of a windscreen in 2013. But, what about on a motorcycle?

TomTom Rider (v5, 2013) review

12 June 2013
  • Summary: This latest iteration of TomTom’s motorcycle-specific sat-nav – still called just ‘Rider’, but known around the internet as ‘Rider v5’ – looks straightforward enough. It’s TomTom’s user-friendly mapping loaded into a tough, waterproof case. There’s a few UI tweaks to suit gloved hands, and a unique new ‘Winding Roads’ feature to suit bikers’ tendency to avoid the most direct route to anywhere in favour of bendy back roads.

Auswertung der Testberichte

18 June 2013
  • Summary: TomTom hat an sein Rider-Motorradnavi kräftig Hand angelegt. Zumindest beim Display besteht aber weiter Optimierungsbedarf. Mangels brauchbarer Konkurrenz ist das Rider aber weiterhin das beste Motorradnavi.
  • Pros: Kann Navi-Ansagen ans Headset funken, Routenwahl gut, wenn auch mit kleinen Fehlern, Stabile Halterung
  • Cons: Kein Contra

  • Excerpt: Tomtom annonce son nouveau modèle destiné aux motos et quads, j'ai nommé le Rider. Et bien non, aucun changement de nom, bien qu'il s'agisse d'un nouvel appareil à l'apparence comparable.

TomTom Rider

21 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Als passionierter Biker wartete der Verfasser dieser Zeilen besonders ungeduldig auf das Eintreffen des TomTom Rider. Denn Abenteuer hin oder her - wenn der Magen knurrt oder die Benzinnadel gen "E" wandert, muss schnell Abhilfe geschaffen werden. Und da Straßenkarten die unliebsame Eigenschaft besitzen, uns die Positionen von Gaststätten und Tankstellen nicht immer zu verraten, ist man mit einem Navi deutlich besser bedient.

Auf der Piste mit dem Tomtom Rider

19 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Auf den sonnigen, kurvenreichen Straßen Südtirols lässt es sich halt am besten testen. Damit die Navis auch Gehör finden – sie funken ihre Ansagen per Bluetooth – steuerte Schuberth den
  • Pros: sehr praktische Halterung, robustes, wasserfestes Gehäuse, gute Ablesbarkeit in der Sonne
  • Cons: kleine Schwächen bei der Zielführung, alternative Routen nur umständlich wählbar
