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? on a recent 9-day ride we encountered unpaved roads that had "washboard effect" from runoff.
Summary: When TomTom came out with a bluetooth GPS unit for motorcycle, I was excited about going wireless. However, I've found some disappointing features, which include: inadequate volume of the bluetooth headset, lack of software support for my Blackberry 8703e and Motorola V710 phones, poor quality, poor service, poorly design desktop computer software, poor mount for car use.
Summary: i have a garmin quest fitted to my bike but recently had the chance to use a tomtom rider for a few days. they do not compare. considering the rider is twice the price, it is no more glove friendly than the quest, and the bluetooth feature is a complete pain. why no simple headphone socket? the directions were difficult to hear on the motorway, full volume is only about a quarter that of the garmin.
Excerpt: After much research reading about this and other sat navs, this appeared to be a reasonable buy, and cheaper than the Garmin most of my friends use. The first problem is the handlebar kit. The thread in the bolts provided won't fit the brake or clutch on a Goldwing 1500. The slide in bracket where it fixes to the bike has no wiring connections so you can't power it unless you further purchase another bracket that has the wiring to power the unit, and that costs a lot...
Pros: Small size
Cons: Extras, eg, car mount, bike charging dock, are very expensive add ons .
Excerpt: The TomTom Rider series is sat nav for motorcyclists - so I've been using the TomTom Rider V2, the model this is replacing. Naturally I expected this would be a nice improvement with some good new features. The lane navigation system shown in the main picture here looks like a great idea... Well worth the £230 or so I would spend on it. Not so. The day comes when the box arrives - those of us who have got used to TomToms customer care and quality are in for a surprise.
Pros: It gets you to your destination . . . eventually, minimum expectation of Sat Nav to be honest
Cons: Pretty much everything except what has been kept from the old model .
Summary: Leider ist es nicht möglich ein 2. Headset (2. Scala Rider G9) zu koppeln. Dabei kommt die Nachricht: "Die erforderlichen Funktionen konnten für dieses Headset nicht gefunden werden" Eine Verbindung mit dem zuerst gekoppelten HeadSet G9 ist danach auch nicht mehr möglich. Auch der Versuch mit einem Sony MW600 BT Headset war danach erfolglos, gleiche Fehlermeldung. Erst nach einem kompletten Reset lässt sich EIN G9 (egal welches der 2) oder das MW600 wieder koppeln.
