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.

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.

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.

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
A shopper asked:will the tom tom blue tooth work with the Sena head set blue tooth ?Mar 12, 2014
Thomas K:The tom tom rider Reference Guide. - [Which can be down loaded I belive on a tom tom site] - can tell you all info on the tom tom rider you need to know. But I did take a look in the reference guide & found under "using a head set" a site you can go to to see a full list of compatible headsets for the tom tom Rider. - Hope this Helps!!!!! [I did not see sena listed.] & The computer would not let me list the site in this note.Mar 13, 2014
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. Apr 30, 2014
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?
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.Jan 30, 2014
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.Jan 29, 2014
