GPS For Motorbikes

Posted on Aug 8 2008 - 2:09am by Richard Sharp

TomTom Rider 2nd GenerationThe TomTom Rider is a satellite navigation system designed especially for the biker. It features, large glove friendly buttons, an ultra clear display that is visible in any lighting conditions, and a little windscreen wiper type implement for removing dead flies and other assorted motorbiking debris from the monitor.

The screen is an impressive 3.5” touch screen and the software has been altered from the usual TomTom fare so that menus are less fiddly and the on screen display buttons are significantly larger and much easier for gloved hands to press without sending yourself on a wild goose chase in the wrong direction.

To set everybody’s minds at ease about the safety of riding motorbikes in general, the TomTom Rider, which is now in its second generation, also includes a Help Me menu feature. This convenient menu enables quick access to emergency services and roadside assistance and you can also plan the itinerary for your trip and log all of the statistics and data about your journey.

The included rechargeable battery will last for about 5 hours on a single charge and it can be recharged using a motorbike battery (which is a good thing, really, when you think about it).
