The TomTom RIDER 2nd edition, designed specifically for motorcycles, updates the first-generation TomTom RIDER. This new model adds a RAM mount, Bluetooth for hands-free cell phone use, and includes a high-quality Cardo scala-rider(R) Bluetooth(R) headset for in-helmet spoken instructions. It comes with pre-loaded maps of the U.S. and Canada.
An optional car mount with integrated speaker transforms the RIDER into an auto navigator.
UPDATE: TomTom has announced that the RIDER 2nd edition will now include TomTom Map Share™, Help Me!, Fuel Prices Service (option), and TomTom Traffic with a 30-day free trial.
More TomTom RIDER 2nd edition reviews
- PC Magazine has posted a TomTom RIDER 2nd edition review, giving it 3.5 out of 5 stars, concluding by saying…“At $699.95, the TomTom Rider 2 isn’t cheap, but it does include the Cardo System Bluetooth headset, which rings up at $169.95 on its own. While the device lacks live traffic updates, as well as the XM radio options offered by its closest competitor, Garmin’s Zumo 550, which sells for over $900, the Rider 2 seems reasonably priced. All in all, the Rider 2 is a talented, durable, bike-friendly GPS device that should serve motorcyclists well.”
