Dutch GPS manufacturer, TomTom Open link in a new window, released a new motorcycle specific GPS to the press today. Called the Urban Rider, the GPS is built on the successful TomTom Rider 2 GPS Navigator for Motorcycles and Scooters, with changes to the existing hardware. Foremost is a more glove friendly touch screen, and for the first time, the GPS is equipped with TomTom's IQ Routes (TomTom use of historical data from other drivers to calculate the fastest route).

The SD card has been removed, instead you'll have plenty of flash memory onboard to load your maps. The increased battery will give you 6 hours of continuous operation without having to use a 12V power supply.

TomTom Urban Rider

The unit is obviously meant for city riders, scooter or motorcycle, and should be priced accordingly, i.e., cheaper than their Rider2 model.

Add-ons, like Bluetooth headsets, will be available for the upper range models,  No further information has been released yet.

UPDATE
: The Urban Biker is going to cost, depending on where you live, between €249 and €299.95 (just call it €300), which is about half that of the RIDER2. It is not clear what maps are delivered with the unit, some countries state "Europe", some none, so check the TomTom site for more info.

€249-€299: N/A
Availability: May 2010
