Summary: I cover a lot of miles on a motorcycle each year (in excess of 12k) and this hasn't let me down so far. I have found the maps and directions to be accurate and concise, journey times spot on and the screen is clear enough to see even on sunny days. The "twisty road" route option is fantastic fun for when you want to kill a bit of time before heading home and has helped me discover some great motorcycle roads that I would never have known existed.
Summary: I love this product. It is so easy to use, and even has settings for windy roads (great for the motorbike), as well as for cycling and walking. The visual instructions are very clear, and I especially like the flashing arrows showing which lane you need to be in on the motorway.
Summary: Tomtom does exactly what it is suposed to do. Good service fast delivery overall nothing to complain about. Think it is a rip off that the unit does not come with own charging unit for the bike which costs about £50.00 more.
Summary: i have used this several times now, and it has to be said it is very good at finding its destination, but it does not take the best or quickest routes, and it has taken me passed junctions to only tell me to get off at the next junction and return down the one i would have used anyhow??? this might just be the settings but it also tried to take me through birmingham instead of carrying on the motorway, the best and quickest way home.
Summary: This is an excellent bike sat nav.. The mounting is adequate, easy to derig it. Screen brightness good, even on the sunniest day. I would give it 5 stars but for the lack of a bike charging system. I have rigged a 12 volt plug on my Deauville, in one of the storage compartments, so I can charge the unit while not using it.
Summary: Good bit of kit - took it abroad and definitely needed the lady telling me what lane to be in going round the motorway intersections in Belgium so did not need to look at the screen when eyes are needed on the road and those round me. It dropped out twice from my scaler rider g4 headset but a reset in a laybye connected up again. I did not buy the charging mount and relied on nightly charge to get me through the following day.
Summary: Good Points: Cheap compared to other motorbike specific satnavs, rainproof and seems pretty rugged, does what you would expect in terms of navigation. Bad points: Battery life at about 5 hours is no more than adequate (the RAM mount supplied wont permit cable access for a charging cable), loading a new map takes longer than you would expect (around 15 mins)
Summary: Having just covered 2500 miles on a trip with a group of bikers around the Black Forest and the Alps I must say that I was impressed with the Urban Rider, especially when leading the group. You can't afford to make mistakes and U-turns! We used the free TYRE program to download the routes. There is a bit of a knack using TYRE but it transfers to TomTom in an instant as an itinerary.
Summary: Having always been a Garmin user I was apprehensive at ordering the New Urban Rider. The unit is tough and is easy to setup with integrated Blue tooth which is a dream to set up with both mobiles and Intercom. The display is clear and fairly uncluttered for its size. There is very little drop out when it comes to satelite signal. Battery life is pretty good but there is the rub!
Summary: This is quite a bulky unit when compared to a standard car TomTom, but I assume that this is due to the larger battery which has certainly lasted for 4-5 hours + on the trips that I have taken (I think it is supposed to last up to 8 hours when fully charged). The unit can be operated on a basic level with bike gloves, but don't be fooled, you won't be entering any postcodes like this!
