TomTom Rider Review

 

This week we've unleashed the Stig to test the TomTom Rider, SatNav just for motorbikes. Will he like it, or perhaps even form a loving bond as only the I.T. Stig can with technical equipment.

Quick and Easy

 

Not much to go wrong on this item. It has a lever that moves one way to create strong suction to the mounting surface, and the other for release. The only minor incovenience is that you must mount the Tom Tom first, and then open the "door" at the...

Product Specifications

It's a lovely sunny day and you feel like taking the bike out for a spin. Will you go on one of your usual circuits or take a different route for a change? Pick a new route, run through it before you leave, build in a few stops and don't worry about getting home. Or just pick a destination and ride. All you need to do is put your gear on, turn the ignition and you're off, without a care in the world. With TomTom RIDER you can ride wherever you want and you'll always find your way the easy way. TomTom RIDER is the first portable navigation system designed specially for bikers, and it's built with enjoyment and safety in mind. You get clear spoken directions door-to-door via a Bluetooth headset in your helmet. RIDER has unique glove-friendly touch-screen operation, and automatically goes into safe mode when you start the bike. There is an anti-glare screen with an integrated visor on its tough weatherproof case so you can see the colorful 3D graphics of the road ahead while you ride. And if you speed up, the volume of the spoken instructions goes up too, so that you can hear clearly at higher speeds. TomTom RIDER also handles phone calls using a wireless Bluetooth headset in your helmet. If you choose to accept them, calls are automatically routed to your helmet, overriding the spoken instructions during the call, while the 3D graphics continue to guide you on-screen. Just keep your Bluetooth-enabled phone in your bag or pocket and both hands firmly on the handlebar. Take any route you want; quickest, shortest, avoiding motorways or even a biker-friendly scenic route. TomTom RIDER transfers easily form bike to bike, and from bike to scooter. And, if you feel like taking the car instead, it works in the car too!
