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.
Summary: So disappointed. Constantly tells you to stay in right lane when going through repeated intersections...very aggravating. Nearly got me killed...tried to take me to the interstate via a one way road...the wrong way. Cannot download more than 100 waypoints.
The winding road feature is nice, but that's the only thing I really like about this GPS.

Summary: Nice product but not as good as a Garmin. Harder to set up than a Garmin. You have to program your route on your computer and then load the Tom Tom. The software works well but the way the GPS handles it is crazy. You will have to check every part of your planned trip before heading out.
Summary: The TomToms have always been second best in the GPS world behind Garmin. Over the years I have tried several models and while they'vs slowly gotten better over the years, they still are not the polished product that Garmin is.
Summary: WARNING !!!!! The new Tom Tom RIder is advertised as having spoken street names . Even though it is advertised to do that and the instruction manual tells you how to do it.. IT DOES NOT. If in doubt call Tom Tom suport @ 1-800-486-6866
Summary: I live in San Jose Ca..This is a big city TomTom riders map does not cover any of the streets down town that start with E, such as E Santa Clara st... none of these streets show up leaving out a huge section of town how bogus is that.
Summary: The device came fast enough and installed easily enough. Sadly it consistently loses the bluetooth connection to the brand new Scala Rider Q3 that I had to buy after it kept losing the Bluetooth connection to the Scala Rider Q2s that I already had.
Summary: I've owned a Rider for three years, and until recently really liked it. The device is easy to use, the maps are reliable, and I've found the resolution to be as good as one can expect for a device that is used in bright sun. The problem?
