TomTom has introduced a brand new version of its TomTom Rider, a portable navigation device created especially for bikers. Following feedback from the motorcyclist community, TomTom Rider has been designed to give bikers the ability to choose the type of route they want to ride: from the fastest; to the most scenic; to their own personalised route.
Bikers can easily create and then upload their personalised routes direct to their TomTom Rider device. By downloading Tyre interactive software, bikers can search, create and edit their own routes on a PC. Alternatively, a unique ‘Upload Routes and Go’ feature enables bikers to upload routes directly to their device and share them with other bikers via Bluetooth.
In addition, TomTom Rider includes a feature that feeds audio instructions directly to the user’s helmet via Bluetooth, meaning riders can fully concentrate on the road ahead. The device also includes the introduction of a new 4.3″ glove-friendly screen, which responds instantly to touch and is designed for riding in any weather conditions, including rain or bright sunlight. The device also comes with a new charging bike dock that turns it on or off with the ignition of the bike.
