Summary: It seems that you can't upgrade your mobile phone as the TomTom won't pair with any modern phone tried every one in the phone shop only works with old phones. Getting hold of Tom Tom is difficult.
Summary: Very good. So far works really well. A goodish price for a waterproof motorcycle satnav. As others say its a shame it doesn't come with proper powered mount which I could only find on here for £54. Battery power is very good but not as stated. You will definitely get a solid 4 1/2 hours use. 4 stars for lack of powered lead etc.
Summary: Had my first Rider stolen, replaced it with another. I thought it was good before, new model even better wth full postcode search and enhanced screen grahics. I have used it throughout Europe, campsite function usefull in citys when looking for place to set after a longdays ride.
Summary: I bought this unit as its waterproof and built for the bike market rather than forcing a car based unit on board. Only niggle is the battery life now fixed by a permanent USB power point. I personally like a map to look like a map rather than a series of instructions - but then I only get lost in built up areas!
Summary: Just got my Tom Tom Rider, I've found it really easy to use, accurate maps, well made and complete with a range of accessories. The only down sides are the need to buy a separate power supply, if you choose to use power supply from your bike and the cable which was supplied required some alteration to be used with the power supply. I think these should be included in the kit or offered as an extra. I only found I needed them as I fitted the unit.
Summary: Yes this Satnav will get you to your destination, but am I the only person to find the IQ routes system a royal pain. It seems that there are only two options for road choices, Motorways or back roads. I dont like to ride on motorways, but neither do I want to travel twice as far as I need to because the IQ system reckons a single track farm road is quieter and prettier. Why no option for fastest non motorway route?
Summary: This is a very nice piece of kit! The day/ night screens are a great idea and the screen directions are clear enough that when your Bluetooth headset dies (like mine did - not supplied with this product) you can easily manage without!
