Run away from TomTom
Run away!
I bought one whilst in Europe, because I was tired of using paper maps, with the attendant challenges of the last/first 5km.
Big mistake.

The Rider 400 is slow at pointing out where you are, on the screen, and then it seems to learn, and then it goes fast. Then you are left never knowing whether the symbol on the screen is ahead, at, or behind your actual road position.
So if you come up to a stretch of road with multiple junctions, you end up taking the wrong turn.

Updating the maps is a joke on the road. The best I have managed is in 9hrs, and that required me to sit there all the time and watch, so I could fix the download issues.
For some reason TomTom requires a complete map download, which is 6GB. Obviously the programmers at TomTom never travel, but live in their Mommy’s basement with 20MB+ download speeds.

Talking of downoads. you better have a huge data plan on your phone, because TomTom needs to connect to the Internet to find any Points Of Interest. The only way TomTom connects to the Internet is via your phone.
Hey TomTom. Here is a news flash. LOTS of places do not have cell-phone coverage.

You will never know where you are. TomTom will, but they never give you the GPS co-ordinates.
TomTom allows you to input GPS co-ordinates, but will never get them from your TomTom. Weird or what?

Actually makes (rather dumb) sense, because TomTom uses the GPS co-ordinates to look for an address or a point of interest that it knows about. You can see the issue. And I have experienced it, first hand. Plug in a GPS co-ordinate, TomTom has no matching reference, so totally ignores the information. Yes. Believe it or not. TomTom has designed and built a GPS device that cannot locate a GPS co-ordinate!!!
And before you ask, this is for a location that is within the existing map!!! I arrived there, the old-fashioned way, by asking for directions.

For Ukraine, TomTom only lists some of the roads. OK, as they state up-front that they only have data for the major roads and streets.
The trouble is, in some places they will list a road, but not give the name of the road.
I found this out in Kolomyya, Ukraine. Luckily, Google saved the day.
Apparently some time ago TomTom did have all road names, then removed them.

TomTom also brought me to some random spot in Kolomyya that it had listed as the centre of town. Has done this in other places, but in Kolomyya, it was a totally random spot.

As for TomTom's route planning feature. hahahahahaha.
If you have trouble planning how to ride the same two points then the Rider may be for you. It is supposed to learn where you ride and when you ride those routes.
For those who ride new routes every day, this is as much use as......, well fill in the rest yourself.

Developed by cafe racers for cafe racers.
You know the type. Ride 10km then spend the next 3 weeks discussing the ride.
If you plan to ride anywhere past the 10km, look elsewhere.

RIDER 400 is the One Device to use in both car and bike.
I live in the UK and ordered it there.Sorry Anthony... I had the US Maps installed and took it with me to Vegas. I was using it all over from Vegas to SanFran to Grand Canyon.There is a learning curve so spend time with the instructions to make it easier. It mounts on my CB1300-SA and I also have the Car Dock so I can change up at will. Great Graphics show you the way and the turn by turn directions are excellent. This was a very worthwhile investment. One Device to use in both car and bike. How cool is that???

TomTom Rider 400 GPS
It was slow, lots of lags, freezes thing were happening. It was up to date version running on it but the screen was hanging, and not rotating sometimes when I change the angle.

Think about twice to get this model. I read many reviews here before buy it because some people say the same thing for Garmin models.

Its an unfinished product that has lots of bugs. The app that I downloaded to my phone wasn't running good, so I was not able to send the address to the GPS most of time.

Poor Quality
I have owned this unit for 6 months and the glass screen has started to come off of the unit. On the left side, the glass cover is about one-eighth of an inch off the unit. It appears the glue that holds it in place has failed. I would add that this unit was always been garaged and only outside when riding the bike. It is a disappointment for the cost of this unit. It is under warranty so I am working with Revzilla (which has excellent customer service) to get it repaired or replaced.

Seems solid, does the job well, but interface is a little clunky
I guess I've been spoiled by apps on my smartphone, and my standards are pretty high now, so I was a little disappointed by the interface on this GPS. It's not quite as quick and smooth as on an iPhone, but it does work well once you've got it figured out.

I had been using iPhone apps for navigation, but only audio through my bluetooth helmet speakers, because I wanted to keep the phone on me, in my jacket pocket (rather than on the bike) in case of an emergency, and also I didn't want to use all my phone's battery for navigation. So I bought this device so I could keep it mounted on the bike. A regular car GPS in a rainproof case mostly does the job, but my old GPS didn't do bluetooth, so I could see but not hear the navigation. This one works well connected to my Sena headset (I can listen to music from my phone, and get nav guidance from the GPS, at the same time), and the screen is clear and easy to read while riding. The device itself seems solid and weatherproof, and I think will stand up well to the elements.

The other main selling point for this over a car GPS is the ability for it to create "thrill" ride paths - you give it some points where you want to go (just by tapping on locations), and it creates loop routes through all of them that can be optimized for curvy roads and with changes in elevation - something that none of the GPS apps I used earlier could do (they're mostly optimized for fastest route point to point). So it adds a little more serendipity and fun to rides - I don't have to plan the whole ride out in advance, but I can still end up going places I haven't been before, and have fun getting there and back again. You can also import planned GPX routes via a microSD card or USB cable synced with a desktop computer.

Overall, based on my limited experience with it so far, I'd recommend it. My main beef is the cost - I feel like it should have been about half of what I paid.

Works Well
Had dealer wire hardwire to ignition so GPS would always be powered. Paired with my Sena 20S headset, no issues.

Some nuances of TomTom over smartphone apps -- but getting used to it. Typically use it in portrait mode and click on the map to get the 3D view.

So far good bang for the buck...

Got us where we needed to be
It worked pretty much as advertised. However, I think it is not intuitive like another popular brand. Letters are hard to see on the screen due to font size. Other than that it did okay.

A solid GPS, easy to use, bright screen.
So, I like this GPS, a lot. I've used Garmin's (and like them too), but I find the (new) TomTom interface very user friendly and tend to prefer it over my Garmin.

Plus:
+ Easy to use.
+ I put a destination in my phone, and it automagically appears on my TomTom.
+ Very bright screen.
+ Seems well made (I've had mine for a year, so far, so good)
+ The onscreen menus are well thought out.
+ The handlebar mount is rock solid. Well made.
+ TomTom's web based route plotter is easy to use.

Negatives:
- The bikes power cable connector is slightly finnicky.
- The web based route plotter only has the basic route plotting functionality (allowing for custom routes). Want heavy duty functionality, use can use Basecamp with this GPS.

So far, so good
I've only done a couple of rides since purchasing but so far I'm happy with it. True, screen could be a bit bigger and the buttons can be a bit tricky to hit with gloves on, but it's got plenty of bang for the buck. The screen visibility is just great: my Zumo friends are jealous. Paired with the new Sena 20S with no fuss. Voice is clear, distinct, and uses American-english phrases (at least it does't say "motorway.") Love the on-the-fly change from landscape to portrait. Another reviewer complained about calling turns late but I haven't had that issue: I'm given plenty of warning. Also, when there's a succession of turns it briefs you on the whole sequence and then calls out each individual turn. Nice touch.

In short, I'm happy with it..

This is a motorcycle riders dream come true.
Just was on a long weekend trip with friends. Prior to leaving I was talking to one of the guys that was riding with me and I told him I hope after the weekend I'm looking back at the new purchase and still thankful I made this decision to spend some $$$. Saturday afternoon he pulled up along side of me and asked if I had the answer that it was a good purchase. O yes its awesome. We all rode for 4 days in areas I've ridden many times and the new Tom Tom 400 took us on many new roads with the twists and hills settings cranked up. Very awesome and paired to the Sena 20S head sets works awesome.!!!
