TomTom RIDER (2nd Edition)


Rugged and durable design, clear LCD display, improved audio, Cardo scala-rider Bluetooth headset

Interface ill-suited to thick riding gloves, power button occasionally unresponsive

The RIDER 2nd edition offers several significant improvements over its pioneering predecessor, including a superior headset and bike mount. While a few flaws remain, it has managed to avoid most of the key obstacles that hamper other units.

Excellent product, works flawlessly


If you've been thinking about GPS for your motorcycle this is it. It looks sharp, works great and is a couple hundred dollars less than the other motorcycle GPS offered on NewEgg.

The TomTom Rider looks great, functions flawlessly and installs right on your handlebars. I had my TomTom installed at a motorcycle shop (American Trikes & Motorsports in Keene, NH) and they hooked it up to my ignition which is the best way to install...

Seperate wall chargers for the scala headset and tomtom device that look very similar. Almost damaged my headset by trying to plug it into the TomTom charger. Also, limited installation instructions for the battery cable for the DIYers. I brought mine...

NewEgg Custom Svc is Awesome


My wife and I wanted to replace a recently stolen TomTom with the Rider so I could use it on my Kawi. I ordered the Rider 2nd Edition AND a vehicle mount. Unfortunately, the mount was for the original Rider. I called NewEgg and they just credited the...

Can't wait to test it out.
