  • Summary: I love it. The winding route feature works great. Pairs easily with my Scala Rider 9X, I was half the price of its competitor.

Worth the money

Jerry, Amazon

  • Summary: As the saying goes: it is what it is. If you've been a Garmin user then this will be somewhat awkward for your use for a while. There is no speech to text so it will never give you the names of the streets. It will tell you to turn left or right in a certain number of yards. Readout in sunlight is pretty good. It doesn't easily lose a signal through areas that have trees, it goes on and off quickly and seems to figure out where you are in a reasonable amount of time.

Pleased with the TomTom

2006poppop, Ebay
6 July 2014
  • Summary: Needed to replace a Zumo 550 that had failed. After looking at prices and options made the decision to buy the TomTom. Overall it has most of the features that I needed but with the price difference between it and a new Garmin made the decision to buy the TomTom. Screen quality is good and unit easy to operate. For the difference in cost I am pleased with the unit.

Great Motorcycle GPS, But concerned about Lifetime Maps.

Geoffrey P. Maslin, Amazon
24 June 2014
  • Summary: The GPS is great, Very rugged and waterproof. Easy to use, I have two other TomTom GPSs. I particularly like the winding route feature and I like that it is constantly looking for better routes as you ride offering the alternates as they are discovered. There are many neat features that I have yet to use. The record feature is one I plan to turn on for my next trip as I often deviate from the planned route to discover new roads or places.

TomTom Rider

Michael Delano "radar man", Amazon
8 June 2014
  • Summary: The TomTom Rider is a good product and works well but is a big disappointment because it doesn't allow for the fuel price option . If it was made by motorcyclist then TomTom needs to have their heads examined as it should allow fuel pricing on the GPS. It does show where the fuel stations are on your POI's, but we should be able to have the option of buying the fuel prices to know what the prices are as well at any chosen fuel station If a person is going to pay $ 300.00...

Customer service is horrible.

Joseph C Binkerd, Amazon
24 April 2014
  • Summary: I received this as a Christmas gift. When I attempted to mount it on my bike I found that the dock that connects the ram mount to the GPS was unusable. The problem being the plastic around the female threaded sections disintegrated when I attempted to screw it together. I contacted the company, incident# 131227-000523, and they said a replacement would be sent.

No onboard speaker and no car kit available

Jerry W. Benningfield, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this unit primarily for use with my motorcycle with occasional use on my car. Although TomTom advertises a "car kit" which includes a speaker, suction mount and a 12v plug, it is not available. After searching reviews from others on the internet it became obvious that TomTom has no intention of providing this accessory. I called TomTom customer support and was told that the Rider is for motorcycles and is not to be used in cars.

Tomtom Rider 2013 User:

Doug C., Amazon
13 April 2014
  • Summary: I have used two different Garmin GPS units extensively (first a Quest II and then a Nuvi 550) on long distance motorcycle trips. The Quest was slow and the screen on the 550 was poor in sunlight but overall they were decent units. The Killer for me was Garmin's miserable map update system and terrible interface software. So I purchased the Tomtom and have been favorably impressed.
