    Model Number: Rider v2 Western Europe
    Having used a Garmin for work i decided to purchase a SatNav for my bike, and after checking the alternatives, i plumped for the TomTom Rider, because:

    - you get a wireless headset
    - you get a mounting kit
    - this is supposedly designed by bikers, for bikers
    - its a 2nd version, so any problems would hopefully be ironed out
    - TomTom have a reputation for making good SatNavs.

    Having purchased the Western Europe version (as the price was reduced in the sales) the package duly arrived. Getting the unit up-and-running was simplicity itself (after charging both the wireless headset and unit for a few hours beforehand). The menu system is pretty easy to work out and is also useful when on the move (although there is a reduced menu-system in this situation) for safety reasons, but all you need to do is pull over for the larger menu.

    Initially I did wonder how i would get the mount onto my bike (GSX-R600 K6) but after quickly realising that it wouldnt go anywhere on the handlebars, or clock set up, i attached it to the right mirror stand. This works like a dream as its level with the eyeline and pretty secure. I did have to tighten up the nuts at one point, after going approx. 100 miles, as the mount slipped down when going over rough tarmac, but after that incident it hasnt moved. Just in case it wouldnt fit, i searched online and found a nice alternative mounting system (telferizer - easy to find online), which has a central mounting system (which they say will fit any bike, but you will need to use the back mount of the enclosed ram mount system to attach the TomTom Rider). This does work nicely, but can be a bit uncomfortable as its set below the clocks.

    Model Number: Rider v2 Western Europe Verified Purchase
    Having previously used TomTom Navigator 5 on a PDA, I decided it was time to get something better for use on my bikes. Having looked at both the Garmin and TomTom offerings I went for the TomTom Rider V2 Western Europe.
    On both bikes the TT works a treat - getting me accurately where I want to go. The itinerary function allows me to plan an "interesting" route more for pleasure than getting somewhere.
    On the VFR I tend to wear a fixed chin bar Arai RX-7RR4 full face helmet, so don't use the bluetooth headset in that helmet. That means giving the screen the odd quick glance to see the next direction. When on the Pan European I wear a flip front Shoei Synchrotec II and have the headset installed in that helmet. The route instructions, as well as taking mobile phone calls on the move, come through clearly at speeds in excess of the legal limit.
    One change I made was to replace the supplied Cardo headset, although perfectly adequate, for a Cardo Scala FM headset. I can know hear instructions in both ears, listen to the radio or an MP3 player (by using one of those small FM transmitters).
    The TT Rider has navigated me successfully to southern Spain, so no complaints there. In my local area it's routing can be a tad strange - but no SatNav possesses local knowledge. So it's a matter of remembering that one small fact.
    The MapShare technology allows users to input any errors they find in the units map to download to TomTom for map corrections. I found a new roundabout, logged it and a week later TomTom had corrected the map to show the roundabout.
    The optional in-car kit allows the unit to be transferred quickly from bike to car.

    Model Number: Rider v2 Western Europe
    I've owned a number of Tom Tom devices for cars etc. and I've found thier software and maps to be pretty good, so when I decided to buy a Sat Nav for my bike this was the one I went for.

    I'm not going to review the software or applications or map accuracy, but I'm going to list a few of the issues, plus some good points, that I've experienced with the unit.

    Not compatible with the iPhone - while you can pair the device, and Tom Tom say it's compatible, every call I've ever received or made cuts off after 30 sec to 1 min. No access to data so traffic etc. can't be used

    Sound quality - instructions in the headset are poor and volume dips mid-sentence, generally cutting off the distance part e.g. "In ... hundred yards, turn left"

    Difficult to download map updates - maybe something to do with my account but I couldn't purchase a map update until I'd loaded the device with a blank card, connected it to my computer and started the Home application. It then let me buy a map that I had to copy across

    The bike dock has broken 3 times - First time after I had the device for about a week, I noticed it wasn't charging. I checked the wire to the battery with a volt meter and it was fine. Checked the pins on the dock: nothing. Tom Tom replaced it free. Second time it broke I was working as a bike courier. Tom Tom insisted I send the dock back before they would send a replacement. Decided just to buy one. This one lasted about 3 months before it too broke.
