TomTom Rider review: TomTom Rider

 

The TomTom Rider provides text- and voice-guided directions to motorcyclists and comes with an easy-to-install mounting kit. All maps are preloaded on an included SD card, and the unit has integrated Bluetooth for hands-free calling.

The TomTom Rider's POI database is outdated and occasionally gave us wrong street names or no street at all for some side streets. Also, the included Bluetooth headset has poor sound quality and we wish the screen were slightly bigger.

Despite some performance glitches, the TomTom Rider is a solid navigation system for motorcyclists, with good Bluetooth integration, but we recommend swapping out the included Bluetooth headset for a higher-quality one.

Rugged and durable design, Bluetooth handsfree

While Tom Tom does get credit for trying with the Rider, there are some key flaws with this GPS solution that have to be overcome.

Review: TomTom RIDER motorcycle GPS

 

If you're an avid two-wheeler looking for a dedicated GPS device, the TomTom Rider is an impressive, if expensive, piece of kit.

And, to a certain extent, I buy in to that mentality. But a much bigger part of me likes the idea of having a device that can not only find a great riding route for me, but also guide me via voice or screen-based directions so that I’m free to...

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.

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!
