Hiya folks,

You may be interested with breaking news regarding the Tomtom Rider. They had a booth in Paris during the Bike fair with 2 systems working, one mounted on a Ducati, the other one on a maxi-scooter.

The product is supposed to be available late 2005. It seems very convenient with a touch screen that is easy to handle even with big fing... gloves ;p

Good point it comes with a Bluetooth mono headset that you can also use for your cell phone.

The official recommended price is 799 euros which is IMO quite expensive. But if you compared it to the BMW option, in fact it's cheap.

If you're interested, I can post a couple of pictures.

Cheers,

Pierre-Alain

Has anyone tried this? I've gone to their web site but I'm more confused that before I went there.

It looks interesting but................

http://www.tomtom.com

Sure would like to hear from anyone that has an educated idea. This dumb ole toot can't handle all the information.

FWIW.A friend of mine came to the USA for vacation this summer and brought his tomtom over. He was very happy with the unit as everything he needed was downloaded on it. He rented an airplane and used it there too!
Now what software he had for that I don't know, but for on the road he said it was as good as the Garmins he used to have.

This one?


Looks interesting... Getting close to replacing my Streetpilot and am always open to alternatives...

However the web site lists this at $1199.95! Hopefully that's the FULL RETAIL price!

Yes that's the site.
I found places that they were not that expensive.
Are they as good as the Garmin? Can additional maps and routes be loaded?

Give eBay a search and see what they have. I did and still didn't know what the heck to look for. Seems they have made some kind of deal with MapQuest.
