TomTom’s New Motorcycle Specific GPS

Dutch GPS manufacturer, TomTom, have released their latest version of the popular motorcycle specific GPS, RIDER. The unit still looks the same (i.e. the same box), but the major changes are to be found in the extra "hardware".

TomTom Rider2
First of all, the new TomTom Rider comes with a Cardo Scala Rider Bluetooth headset for helmets. This allows you to listen to the verbal navigation commands of the Rider, without being wired to your motorcycle.

Another new item is the RAM support. You can now fix the TomTom Rider to your motorcycle using a RAM support.

And last in the hardware department, you can now use the Rider in your car. As optional extra, you can get a car mounting kit (€79.95).

TomTom Rider2 Buddy
On the function side, one new item is the possibility to "see" where your buddies are on the GPS. You can invite other TomTom GPSs (although each will need to be equipped with a Bluetooth enabled mobile telephone that can communicate via GPRS), and then monitor where they are. This can be quite practical, since if you're riding in a large group, you can "see" where the rear of the group is, or if you meeting up you buddies somewhere, you can see where they are.

Here in Europe, the Rider will come in a Rider Local version (ie your country is preloaded), or in the Rider Europe version (with all of Europe pre loaded).

Price: around €500 to €600. Availability: May 2007
