great software, bad mounting system This was a response to a buyers inquiry that I decided to make into a review. I meant to do a Rider product review earlier,due to my disappointment with this product but, well you know how it goes... I did a lengthy ride with this unit (14,000km over 25.days) and at first it performed really well. Easy installation and easy-to-use. It was really quick and the mounting system puts the unit right up where you want it to be. The interface has large "buttons" that respond accurately even when wearing winter gloves. Also the software is excellent. The "winding roads" feature worked well most of the time with only the occasional redundant detour. HOWEVER, and this is a big one, the hardware for this unit was a MAJOR let down. When I screwed the unit onto the mounting bracket, the screws pushed through the casing and cracked the plastic. Probably my own fault but it didn't take much to do.The plastic was very brittle and the screw housing completely crumbled. The style of the set up instructions is: "this product is so ultra simple to set up we don't need to elaborate on some of the finer points that could render your mounting system useless". As I was leaving the next day, I couldn't return the product leaving me no other option but to secure the broken frame with JB weld. This worked well and the unit performed great for about 7000km. Then, the unit mysteriously stopped charging. It would go into shutdown mode and then power would come on and it would start up again. I found the problem to be thus: extended vibration during the ride wore down the grooves that holds the unit to to the mounting face (the seemingly well designed quick release system). Well the problem is that the power connectors stop connecting when the unit isn't perfectly in place. I used JB weld again to fill in some of the worn plastic and it worked for a while but on the last 3 days of my trip the unit was just dead weight on my dash. Tom Tom has a great product here that I would repurchase if they redesigned the mounting system. Moral of the story: for short rides on smooth roads with a smooth ride (I have a thumper), the Tom Tom Rider will probably do the trick... But then, why even own a GPS unit if one can't take it on the fun rides too? Moral #2: always carry JB weld in your tool kit. I sincerely hope TomTom addresses some of these issues.

Does everything I need from a motorcycle gps Set up was very easy. The glove friendly feature is a big plus. I really like the curvy route feature. I'm finding new places in my own backyard. The device pairs easily with my Android phone and Sena Bluetooth. I'm very satisfied with the purchase. I've been a longtime customer of another brand, and was worried this unit wouldn't stack up. But with Tyre, lifetime maps, and daily user input route updates, I'm very happy overall. Plus with the $200 I saved I can buy more goodies for my bike. September 30, 2014
Good for the money Works as advertised. I like Tyre. Love winding roads. Could be bigger and higher resolution, but it is as specified. Half price of other units and works better. Appreciate Price match! September 15, 2014
So Far this GPS is fantastic(Tom/Tom Rider) First Let me start off by stating Revzilla did a no hassle price match for me with in 24 hours. I always like to save money. Before wiring the GPS to my 06 Road King Custom I use the GPS for 5 days to find the best position for mounting. I noticed the battery will only last about 2 to 2 1/2 hours this is pretty poor for a GPS. Other than that the GPS works fantastic and has lifetime map updates (overall much better bargain/value than a GARMIN). Everything was in the package to mount and wire the GPS to my bike . Very straight forward 30 mins from start to finish. It would really would be nice if the locking devices were sold as part of the package, so you don't have to order the device separate (people will always try to steal your stuff ) Overall the TOM TOM Rider functions very well and I recommend August 3, 2014
Blows my other GPS away! This thing has everything you would want in not only a GPS but in a motorcycle GPS as well. The curve road button is awesome and finds roads that I never thought to go down before. The only thing missing for me that would make it the Ultimate GPS would be the traffic feature. Other than that this puts my other GPS (you know who you are) to shame. There is no comparison between the 2. April 23, 2014
Nice First of all I would like to say I love your service. I am OK with this product, now looking forward to purchasing my MAP for Africa. February 3, 2014
Good product As a GPS unit goes, it works well, and it's considerably less expensive than the main competitors. Installation was easy. The Tyre software that comes with it looks to be handy, especially if you want to program in scenic routes you find in books, magazines, or the internet. I'm used to GPS units for cars from the other major manufacturer, so the TomTom interface took a little getting used to, but it works. The touchscreen works with gloves as advertised. I haven't tested out the bluetooth functionality yet, but that's the next thing on my list. I also haven't tested out the water resistance. There is presently a lack of accessories for it--I had wanted to purchase an additional power cable, but apparently those aren't available, at least in the US. Hopefully that will change in the future. I also had a question for TomTom's customer service about powering the unit via an accessory socket rather than wiring the harness directly to the battery. They weren't very helpful with that, though the Powerlet people were very helpful, and I got that to work nicely. One minor annoyance was that one of the first places I tried to navigate to--a local diner--was listed at the wrong address, which didn't inspire a lot of confidence upon first using the product. Hopefully that's just an isolated thing, though. November 26, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Fredrik S: It's a little heavy, both the unit and the hardware to mount it. But, it is a much better value than the Garmin models that are made for bikes. And I like the curvy roads feature - to me it's a no-brainer that most bike-riders would want/need that. Jul 17, 2014

Dave P: Works very well with all types of gloves. Don't need those special gloves for touch screens. Really good GPS but not with Mac or Google Crome.
Must use with PC and Internet Explorer when planning pre routes otherwise no issues. Garmin has a wider use base with other riders for sharing files.

Paul B: Hey Erik S,

Yes the unit works with gloves on very well. I was worried that with gloves on I would hit the wrong button or multi buttons but NOPE it seems to know what I want. I would recommend a screen protector though. I really enjoy this version, my ZUMO hasn't been used all season.

Nathan V: I bought this gps for a cross country trip, and the touchscreen works surprisingly well with gloves on. I never tried typing while moving but navigating the menus is made easy with large icons and the screen is almost as responsive as if you were not wearing gloves. Oct 2, 2014
Reply to Nathan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
A s: It is more responsive with gloves than bare fingers. It works great with my tourmaster adventure gel gloves. Still works with my winter insulated gloves but not quite a well. If you already have a TomTom and are familiar the operation this a a clear choice. Oct 2, 2014

Robert Y asked: If the dock is connected to the bike's battery while the gps is not mounted, and it rains, will it short circuit the battery? Nov 21, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Dave P: Robert I guess it seems like it could. I was in a drenching heavy down pour and put the GPS away while the cable was exposed to the water and rode 3 hours and it was fine.

I installed it differently but my answer to your question would still be right.

I plug it in with a male / female connection where I plug the battery tender and cap that when not in use. That way it is a direct connection to the battery and I turn it on and off on the GPS, not the keyed switch which would turn it off when the ignition is off.

Haley C asked: Hi,

Is this the latest version of this Tom Tom i.e. Tom Tom Rider 2?

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Paul B: Hi Haley C,

This is, if I am not mistaken, 2 generations after the tomtom rider 2. There was a tomtom urban rider in there somewhere. This tomtom was released late 2013 in Europe and made available north American in 2014. It is the most recent Rider as of today and in my opinion the best to date.

A shopper asked: I returned my brand new Garmin Zumo since it would not follow routes without me having to select waypoint after waypoint manualy. Does this TomTom model follow routes as it should (IMHO)?

Ex.: I create a route with
- start
- waypoint 1
- waypoint 2
- end

On Garmin I set it to follow the route, select my start. It then asks me where I want to go on my route (!). If I select the end, it recalculates the "best" route and ignores the waypoints. If I select waypoint 1, when I get to it, it thinks I am done. I have to then select waypoint 2 to get to it. Very annoying on a bike! P.S.: I do not need Garmin support, they already told me the newest Garmin models do not follow routes with waypoints like their previous models did...

So will I be able to do that with the TomTom Rider? Can it follow routes with waypoints?

Thanks!

Douglas C: I have had the TomTom Rider for about a month now and have used it on two long trips in my truck (it's been too cold for the motorcycle here in Illinois). This is my first TomTom after using four Garmins over the past 10 years. I purchased the TomTom because I was frustrated with Garmin's poor customer support.

First thing I will say is that TomTom does some things a bit differently than Garmin. So for Garmin users there will be a transition period. You really need to spend some time with the manual and practice a bit.

I agree that creating routes with waypoints on a Garmin can be time consuming and frustrating.

TomTom has a very nice feature (explanation hidden deep within the manual) that allows you to create waypoints via City Centers. In TomTom a route is called an "Itinerary". Create an Itinerary with a start point and a destination. Then create waypoints using the "Via City Center" feature. Simply type in the city & state of the towns you want to pass through or around.

When you have entered all the City Center waypoints then simply press "Calculate Fastest Route". TomTom realizes you do not actually want to go to the City Center and routes you via the fastest route through or around the City Center to your next waypoint. This seems to work seamlessly and is big improvement over having to create specific waypoints. I have created 10 or 15 Itineraries using this method with ease.

Another great feature of TomTom is that when connected to your computer you can operate your TomTom remotely. An image of the TomTom display appears on your computer screen and you can use your mouse and keyboard to create Itineraries, load them and check to see if TomTom routes you as you expect.

There has been a learning but I'm glad I went with the TomTom.

Charles A: I do not know the answer to your question as I have purchased the TomTom Rider GPS based on friends' recommendations. It may be of value to ask TomTom Rider that question directly through their website. I do not even know what a waypoint is. I'm sorry I do not know how to help you. Good luck in your effort.
