Tom Tom Rider 2nd Edition

I picked up the Tom Tom Rider 2nd Edition for my motorcycle. What a great GPS.

Before I left, I hooked it up and paired it with both of my bluetooth cell phones. You can only use one phone at a time, so I connected to one and off I went. There is a helmet mic and speaker, so you can hear the turn directions (if you choose) and receive phone calls. There are other options I haven’t figured out yet which allows the unit to connect throught the phone to retrieve traffic and weather.

I’ve only taken it on one trip, but thus far I love it. It locks securely onto the bike, updates rapidly, and the maps seem accurate. I’ll know more as I play around and figure out the other features.

It also has a buddy feature. This would be awesome for trips. You can connect to other units in your group and it marks their position as well.
